The People We Meet -
My 3 color trilogy.
A rare moment I try to capture between people and honest gestures in circulation of truth, love & beauty... Human nature will prevail!
They say faith is taking the first step when you can’t see the whole staircase.
We meet so many people in life, but we connect to the hearts of very few. Where you are in five years depends on who you meet . Thank you for coming into my life and giving me joy, thank you for loving me and receiving my love in return. Thank you for the memories I will cherish forever. But most of all, thank you for showing me that there will come a time when I can eventually let you go.
Hamburg - Nov. 2020
During Covid I had some time off to visit friends in Hamburg, Germany...
Great dinner, good laughs, chatted about Art & even made a new friend named Sammy, aka Harry The Dog.
Whenever a tattoo is executed the subjects matters face would have to be a minimum of two thumbnail sizes... This would properly balance projecting from 5 feet away.
Also would enable you to touch up if needed 15 years from now with
the guarantee of a non undesirable dark cluster but a clean looking new tattoo.
So when I spoke to my dear friend I suggested the inside of the fore-arm!
We call it the "La Creme de la creme " meaning it is the best place for details seeing he wanted a full bodied angelic subject matter. This area is special because the Sun never hits it and you don't have to worry about banging it around like so many mechanics I know! not to mention one of the loudest canvas spaces to tattoo because when you go to shake someones hand it definitely catches attention!
As far as the outer fore-arm, hand size is the minimum size because as you can see the sun does hit that particular area and the tattoo can cluster into darkness... simplicity is key!
Also hand size is the typical size that can balance almost to any human body depending on how tall the client is.
This piece is in progress.

Amour - Nov. 2020
I Tattooed Ben Savage in my earlier years from Boy Meets World but this year I was blessed to tattoo my second Nickelodeon super star Alina Mour one of the most humblest sweetest souls I have ever meet.
Symbolism - June 2020
There was a time people would create, just to give something beautiful to the world which we are so blessed to live in and a time when people understood the work of all of the arts. I was blessed to embrace the culture of the past recently fast forwarding into the present while walking through the cobble stone city of Praha.
Here is what reflected through my studies while embracing timeless sculptures sketching away.
The name actually meant.
Happy 4th of July
