Unless otherwise stated, each project is tattooed only one time. It is considered extremely bad form to copy an existing custom tattoo. Please respect my work, and my client’s dedication and expense. 

Occasionally I will offer an alternate project directly to a client who writes in for something that has already been spoken for.  This is a great reason to send in a clear photo with your submission, you might just have that scapula I have been waiting for, all these years.

ACANTHUS

Acanthus

This one is very complex, and will take a lot of layering strategy, and most of my tricks. Some areas in grey tones, some hatched, some white on black. This would look phenomenal above a blackout calf- we could possibly even extend roots downward into the blacked out area. With permission from the stunningly skilled UK woodcut artist Geri Waddington.

If interested, please send this info: your availability, if you are located in Chicago, or would you be traveling to appointments, as well as a photo of the area to be tattooed. These will all help greatly in my decision.

VINTAGE MELON

Vintage Melon

Vintage reference image by the artist George Bradshaw. I’ve been hanging on to this fancy melon for awhile now, trying to figure out what to do with it- this seems to be the correct answer. Big arm, thigh, or even back.

LACY JACKET

Lacy Jacket

Stitched in tiny grey dots, this jacket will be tailored to the size and proportions of the wearer- expect a good amount of variation from this image, depending on the skin tone and body type of the person it finds a home on. Possibility for subtly colored botanical vignettes inside the dotted diamonds on each arm- pink lemons? morning glories? Front currently unknown- could finish as a bolero, if breasts are present, or continue across the chest with a fancy inset in the middle…

Textile Blossoms
