Color Tattoo Portfolio

A collection of my work over the last couple months. My Color Tattoo Portfolio updates daily so check back to see all of my most recent creations. Please visit the specialty articles featuring Color Illustrative Tattoos, Pet Portrait Tattoos and Tattoo Cover Ups.

I guess I’m posting some older pieces for a bit. I was hesitating. But they deserve love too. #webgallery ...

Reallly happy with how Kona “the love sponge”! Turned out on a great new client @sue_subkow This dog made a positive difference in people’s lives. And is now forever immortalized with her everyday! @konathelovesponge #webgallery ...

The Lisa Frank mythological sleeve! @dawnmarie0914 is my favorite client this year for going in on a sleeve that is ALL COLOR! And has no qualms! #webgallery ...

Got a healed video of this family inspired half sleeve! Stoked on how solid it turned out. #zodiactattoo #owltattoo #skulltattoo #sandiegotattooartist #webgallery ...

One of my best clients got a job opportunity in Miami! We got to color this before he leaves. We will continue work when he travels back. @yrsjefe thanks for everything over the years! Good luck brother. #tengutattoo #webgallery ...

First session yesterday on this jazzy astronaut! Volume up please. Thanks @ayoungdiesel for coming out from NY to collect this portion of his sleeve. #sandiego #sandiegotattoos @balancingacttattoocraft #webgallery ...

I love doing fur kid tattoos. Whether they are still alive or passed over the rainbow bridge. They are some of the most loyal lives we will ever experience. This is my sister who had to put her girl down just before she came to visit. I was honored to do it for her. Thanks @allie740 #dogsofinstagram #mansbestfriend #webgallery ...

Some floral arm decorations for @cheenwalker #sandiegotattooartist #sandiegotattoos #webgallery ...

Super hard to get pictures of this one, but I'm pretty stoked on how it turned out! Candle in a bottle for my good friend @itsthesarabeth. #sandiegotattooartist #sandiegoartist #webgallery ...

I’m in the Midwest for the week. And wanted to share this #tbt of my clients first tattoo! She sat like a champ. So stoked on these #sphynxcat #sphynxofinstagram #rosetattoo #nakedcat #webgallery ...

We only have one more session to go on this one. #blueringoctopus #pocketwatchtattoo #colortattoo #illustrativetattoo #freehandtattoo #markerdrawing #almostfinished @balancingacttattoocraft #webgallery ...

Reminiscing about this #fearandloathinginlasvegas tattoo I did a few years back. Too fun! @chadwhitsontattoo #webgallery ...

Let’s take a second...... I want to really show my appreciation for my clients that “get it”. Often I’m told by clients that they love my work and want me to tattoo them. That’s very much appreciated. They usually continue on to explaining their tattoo which is nothing like any of my works. Black and grey. Or photorealistic. I try to sway them to being open to my idea. But often times I just don’t understand the misvisualization. My client fit is always when someone lets me “do what I do”. Especially the cover ups. Omar has been through some shit. But he “gets it”. He’s sat through laser @absolutetatremoval to lighten both of his arms and all of his chest. In order for me to be able to do my job better. I can’t thank the people who let me do the coolest tattoo I can for them. Never limit creativity! Why would you when it’s permanent. Thank you to everyone and anyone that has let me create what I love. #webgallery ...

Free handed this pirate skull buddy today! I did not do the stuff around. About 3 hrs with marker time included. #jollyroger #pirate #skull #waves #crossedswords #eyepatch #webgallery ...
