So, I've been a member of for awhile now, and I've noticed something rather cool lately. Three times lately I've had a tattoo I've done showcased on the frontpage. I'm thinkin' that that's pretty cool.

Heart Tattoo On A Friend

This is on my friend Chandra. Her dad has had a stroke, and an embolism recently, and she asked if I could design something pulmonary related for him. I came up with this, and she got it on her ribs. The linework looks shinier than it is, as I did it before the coloring and it had just healed up.

A Flower, Blooming Out Of A Gramophone

This one was fun, and I wasn't even supposed to do it. My coworker Chong, who is an AMAZING artist, drew the gramophone, and started on the swirly things. He asked me if I wanted to collaborate on the flower, and handed his half over to me. I was pretty stoked, I love his artwork, and a chance to add to it was fine by me. Things happened, and he wasn't able to tattoo it, so asked me if I would, because the girl wasn't going to be in town long. So when she came in, we sat and talked with her, and she liked my portfolio, and we started it. I have yet to do a background, but that will be blues and greens and some negative space butterflies.
