Been painting again.......

It's been a while since I've sat down with a couple brushes and practiced making some tattoos.  I kinda forgot that it's an important part of what I do.  I also forgot how much fun it can be.  Hopefully I keep the pace and continue to hone my skills and offer up some fresh images for the clients.  I look back on the days when it was the tattooers responsibility to fill his walls with images that would earn the dime.  Back when it was the tattooers responsibility to make everything necessary to fulfill the the task of tattooing.  Needles, pigments, acetates, and the best, most efficient flash possible.  I hope to carry on some of these traditions and strive to never forget where we came from and the importance of self-sufficiency and hard work.  Painting a couple sheets of flash is only a small step, but hopefully the first of many steps toward personal growth and better understanding of our craft and how to ensure it's positive future.

I did this little number for my customers at Eglin Air Force Base and Hurlburt Field.

Some old, some new.  A bit of an odd random mix.
