Gotta update more often.........

Ok, it's been a really long time since I've updated this thing.  Things get busy and time flies by.  I dropped off the map late last year and early this year.  Some friends and I got together and built a new shop called Black Eye Tattoo here in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida.  A lot of great people pitched in and helped us get it done in three and a half weeks.  We had our inspection at noon on the fourth of January and by 2:00pm we were tattooing appointments.


We weren't quite fully decorated yet in these pics....











I've been doing a lot more tattooing lately now with the new shop up and running, leaving less time available in the workshop. And then came the orders........lol.  I had quite a few orders stacking up while the shop was being built, and it took me a while to get them all done.  While filling those orders, more came in.  (I know, it sounds like I'm complaining,....lol)  I was able to keep up with the orders but in doing so, I never had a chance to make some nice custom stuff to have available if someone just wanted to pick one up quick.




The Jonesy project went well.  I had a lot of fun doing them and learned so much in the process.  I will continue to occasionally do small runs of different tribute machines here and there.  Up next is a short run of Milton Zeis Super Electrics, so keep an eye out for those.











Now, that catches us up....lol.  I've got some new stuff in the works and with the fall season coming, the weather and the slower business at the shop will allow me to spend much more time in the workshop.  New frames, new casts and some great classics coming too.  Thanks for checking back and stay tuned.   -Andy
