Winter Getaway

I don’t know about everyone else, but this time of year always starts to feel like a battle in Minnesota–freezing fingers, icy streets and sidewalks, short days, car problems, cold houses! This time of year I appreciate spending time in the shop the most, not only because its a few degrees warmer than my house … Continue reading

Back from Late Summer Travels

I’ve actually been back from traveling for about a month now, but I got to go on three fun trips in August and never posted about it. I went out to Providence and Boston for a long weekend to see the Lungs guys on tour and hang out with my friends Ron and Julia. I’m … Continue reading

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

Happy New Year!

Happy 2015 everyone! New Year’s Day is one of my favorite holidays–I love setting goals and looking over what we’ve accomplished in the past year and what we hope to accomplish in the next. I’m really excited about everything this year brought–the Sea Wolf has stayed busy and has been an inspiring place to be, … 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

Garden Bounty!

Summer is at it’s peak, and the garden is overflowing with more vegetable than I can keep up with canning and eating right now! I had a great time in Cincinnati, and I’ve been using most of my free time since I got back working in the garden and putting up cans to save a … Continue reading

About Face

November was a pretty slow month, which allowed a lot of time for drawing, thinking about tattoos, cooking and eating. Although it was stressful to not have a lot of work to do, it did allow me a lot of time to put into the tattoos I did get to do, and a lot of … Continue reading

Signs and Systems

This week at Sea Wolf, Jason decided to work on some updates at the shop, to keep things fresh. The shop has been open for about a year and a half now, and as it becomes more and more full of antiques and tattoo stuff, it requires some curating. In order to consolidate the tattoo … Continue reading

Tried and True

Much to the chagrin of every practical person in my life, I recently bought a Civil war-era bed frame at an antiques store for my guest bedroom. I went into the the antiques store looking for a single bed, hoping for some sort of weird industrial looking bed frame that wouldn’t cost an arm and … Continue reading
