Tattoo Art

Once upon a time… I was fortunate enough to participate in a tattoo apprenticeship spread across two different shops over the course of a year. Technically, you could say I finished (I produced one serviceable black-and-white tattoo on a very patient volunteer) but I would never consider myself to be an expert on the subject. That said, I learned a tremendous amount about this incredible art form and its storied history and diverse schools of thought. Below are a couple of the pieces I designed in my spare time that were never produced (yes, I am a huge Trek fan and, no, I will not tattoo your friend for free in my kitchen).
