I am an aspiring tattoo artist who has designed bits of flash for my friends for years. I love the challenges that tattoos present - I strive to take issues like anatomy, blurring and fading, cost, and readability into account when I go to work. My inspirations usually come from Old Skool tattoo flash, Johnny Gruelle, Quentin Blake, Edward Gorey, Michael Hague, Gil Elvgren, Karina Figueroa, Jeff Gogue, Picasso, Renoir, deKooning, VEGAN1, KIBBY, Art Nouveau and Edwardian product advertisements, 20s and 30s jazz, 80s pop culture, and anything that might give one goosebumps (vampires, cephalopodia, anatomical specimens, gore). I also love silly tattoos that include puns and inside jokes - "thumb nails" anyone?
