I got this done in Brunswick, Melbourne at Korpus Tattoo by Taniele Sadd.
I got my artwork tattooed on me because I could never regret putting a piece of me in ink. I sell art, I give away art and I lose art and I just find something sweet about it being permanent.
The Narwhal was actually a symbolism about me growing up being bullied. I see the Narwhals to be beautiful and mystical and nobody really understands them. I guess it’s the first step of my sleeve, and I wanted to start with growing up being different to most kids, and being outcasted for that in the playground and the classroom. Now I embrace it.
The famous H4 chronometer created/finished by John Harrison in 1761. Awesome history. 11 hours total and finally finished. The picture doesn’t do it justice. Designed and inked by Colbey Joyce at Black Hive Tattoo in Jacksonville, FL.
This is the deathly hallows symbol from Harry Potter. Not only did I get it because I’m a huge Harry Potter fan but it means protection to me, and that means everything. Got it done by Chris Mack at Eastside tattoo in New Smyrna Beach, FL.
On 12 February, 2012, I received an email from Heather S. She told me that she’s been a big fan of my artwork for quite some time and has been particularly fond of my ‘Swishy Naked Lady’ piece.
So, after two years of careful deliberation, she decided to get it tattooed on her thigh. She had it inked by Jose Sanchez at Outsiders Ink in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It was done in one sitting, and took 20 hours.
Man. There is no greater honour than knowing someone is willing to permanently engrave my artwork onto their body. How fucking ridiculous is this?!?!
Jose, you did a fucking brilliant job at rendering my piece. I salute you.
This is the start of my anime themed sleeve, this guys name is Dr. Stein. He is based on the central characters from Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein. If you have watched Soul Eater before then you know exactly what I am talking about, I still have a bit more work to do on him but I am all around in love with it.
