Experimental Phase

I’ve been experimenting a lot lately with my approach to tattooing, trying out using more line weights to make a tattoo look like a woodcut or an etching, stripping things down to simplicity, sculpting lines up (which I never thought I would do!), using different color palettes in different ways. I’ve also been trying to … Continue reading

Recent Work

Here’s some pictures of recent work, in the wake of everything that’s been going on in the news, I can’t write another happy-go-lucky post today. I hope everyone stays safe, please be kind and listen to each other.

Late Summer Updates

It’s been a very exciting summer, for the shop and for me personally. We closed on our house at the end of July, and August has been full of projects getting settled in our house! It’s getting to the point where I am ready to put down the house paint and get back to painting … Continue reading

Quick Updates

Here’s a few pictures of what I’ve been working on lately. Life has been kind of a whirlwind this summer, I’m in the process of buying a house (yay!) and the shop has been busy, so I don’t feel like I have many pictures or things to share besides some recent tattoos. The shop has … Continue reading

Green Sleeves

One of the most common questions I address during consultations at the shop is how to create a sleeve, or how to incorporate or “add-on” to an existing tattoo to create a sleeve. I don’t think I have all the answers on this, but I feel like it’s been helpful to my clients to hear … Continue reading

Work in Progress

In the last month or so I’ve gotten to start a lot of big tattoos, and finish a couple as well. It’s been great to work on these projects with clients who are really committed to getting the tattoo done on an efficient timeline. I guess the only downside is I only have in progress … Continue reading

I can’t express enough how lucky I feel to get to work with such awesome clients with such cool ideas. It blows me away every day … Continue reading

Before and After: Art-a-Whirl at Bauhaus

A couple of weeks ago Jason and I got to tattoo at the Bauhaus Brewery during a Maker’s Fair they put on for Art-a-Whirl. My good friend Jake came down and was nice enough to take a couple pictures of us tattooing at the event. I had a great time, and we were lucky to book … Continue reading

Tis The Season

The holidays can mean vastly different things to different people–for most tattooers, myself included, it means a small lull in business and some quiet time around the shop. This December I haven’t done a lot of painting, but I have gotten to start working on some projects with friends and experimenting with new approaches to … Continue reading

Home in Minneapolis

I had such a great time in Providence–it was a quick trip, it felt like I spent almost the entire time either working or on a plane, but it was great to see friends and family and be in Providence again. I’m originally from Minneapolis, but I feel like I really developed who I was … Continue reading
