A couple weeks back Molly tattooed this swallow on the neck of one of her regular clients. This piece was a perfect match for Molly, as she's always glad to have the chance to draw up animal-related tattoos in her illustrative style that she's cultivated over the years.

This past Friday, Matt tattooed this piece of a realistic raven strolling over a couple of roses on our shop friend, Donna. Always good for a conversation about music, art, or life in general, Donna was cool enough to just let Matt run ahead with this tattoo and make it something he would really enjoy working on. Matt ultimately whipped out this bright, saturated, and smooth piece, which Donna was thrilled to be the proud new owner of.

Natan has been working away on a whole new crop of work lately. Check out the following pieces he has recently finished up:
Cock fight backpiece
Big and bold, this backpiece on the friendly Will Means speaks for itself; an old fashioned cock fight! All black and grey with an attention to line density, repeating patterns and varying textures, this piece was just finished up the other week.
Tribal Battle Axe
Steve Johnson soldiered through this large tribal battle axe piece on his ribs in one long sitting from Natan. Check out the soft black 'n grey shading lending a bit of a sculptural and three dimensional shape to the organic patterns.
In addition to all of the projects Natan has been finishing up lately, he also has a number of multiple-session, larger pieces in the works. Check out some of his progress shots from a handful of his repeat customers below:
At 85 years old, Colorful Bill is still chipping away at a full-body suit. Sporting a whole lot of work from Natan, Bill has become quite a regular at the shop, swinging by every week or so to hang out, chat, and usually book up some more time. Here's a peek at the latest work he's gotten.
Tribal with skull
A returning client with large sections of bold tribal work from Natan, John stopped by the other day to add in some more stuff. You can never go wrong with skulls, ever.
In progress for only the last month or so, this koi half-sleeve is steadily approaching completion. Utilizing fundamentals of traditional Japanese designs for the foundation of this tattoo, Natan has been having a blast exploring different avenues of color theory and design to customize this piece.
