getting inky

(earth, wind, fire, water, moon – for alex raffael)

sometimes how we envision things happening doesn’t end up being the case. in fact, this happens most of the time. if, a year ago, someone was to tell me i’d be receiving weekly commissions to draw and design words and pictures that people all over the world would be permanently marking themselves with, i’d have thought that sounded amazing, and completely unbelievable. well, now, just seven months after designing my own, first tattoo, i am happily occupied with translating ideas, words, and images into tattoos. i love it. of course, now i can’t imagine not thinking of this in the first place.

here are a few recent tattoos that i’ve designed, and as always, i welcome many more to come.
