I tattooed this piece on Scott Olive's girlfriend while doing a guest spot at Oddity Tattoo in Sarasota, Florida. The piece took me about 4 hours total.

"In the beginning he had nothing but good intentions, but the more time he spent in the company the more he lost of his original self."
Had a "no-show" for my Saturday slot at Tattoolapalooza in Miami this past June so I squeezed this piece in. Sketched the entire piece on with marker and knocked it out in about 3.5 hrs.

A fellow tattoo artist from Greensboro, North Carolina drove up to get this piece from me. He asked me to put together a piece that would represent all of his allergies so I drew up a cat trying to defend itself from a shrimp and some dust mites with an inhaler. This piece took me roughly 15 hours total.

Tattooed this piece on my buddy Ryan a couple of years back down in Cocoa, FL. He had originally asked for a vulture on the side of his calf which I was really excited about tattooing. I sat down, started to draw, and got a little carried away. Fourteen hours later, this is what he ended up with.
