Omar came to us all the way from Chicago. He came in with a terrible tribal tattoo he got when he was younger. Everyone he approached to cover up this project declined. We took on the challenge but it had to be done in at least two visits. The first session was six hours long the second session he had to fly back to McAllen to be able to get it finished. That’s right folks he flew all the way from Chicago strictly for a tattoo.
The Japanese dragon, also called ryū (龍) or tatsu (竜), is a snake-like creature without wings, contrary to the Western dragon. As a symbol of strength and power, the dragon is highly respected and honored in Japanese society. Learn more about Japanese dragon mythology here

Skull heart with blossoms
Today I had the pleasure of tattooing Taylor. This tattoo was extremely meaningful to her due to a recent life changing experience. Without getting too far into her story, she suffered a heart attack at the young age of 25. She is a very healthy woman with no known health issues. She got a heart attack shortly after receiving a certain mandated shot. Just like her, we’ve heard countless stories that simply get swept away.
The tattoo idea she gave me was to merge a skull and heart. After telling me her story this tattoo signifies her being so close to death due to her heart complication and yet reliving once again with flowers blossoming.
Thank you so much for looking at it and checking it out I wish I could get further into Taylor‘s story. She is an amazing woman and cannot wait to see her again for her next tattoo.
Molly’s snake and chalice
We started Molly‘s project with the intention of making it all in black and gray, after seeing some of my recent posts in color and talking to other clients we decided to go with color on this piece. This is what we were able to achieve in two short hours. What are you guys think was color a good idea? More to come.
Today’s tattoo we were finally able to really saturate this piece. This tattoo has many hours into it. Sessions will always be key for the best results. In addition, I also included the black-and-white photo as a way to show how much saturation is truly on this tattoo showcasing how well it will hold for the years to come. Keep in mind, most of this tattoo is fully healed. We just bumped up (polished) a few things that required a bump in contrast. This tattoo is solid completely in color but has plenty of black to with stand the test of time. Thank you for looking don’t forget to leave note if you like what you see or if you have any questions.
