The Girliest Sleeve

Girlie Full sleeve Arm Tattoo, originally uploaded by slushbox.

This is the wife’s arm sleeve. She’s busted my balls on this one it took us almost 3 years to complete because we’d do one small piece at a time. Luckily it still has some nice flow to it.. She’s even gotten a 1st and 2nd place trophy respectively for the two contests she’s entered it in.

I think my inner vagina really came out in this one. Try not to step in it.

These photos were from an Atomic Bettie Shoot in the Bahamas. They were having a Blackjack tournament and wanted it to be themed “Beach Blanket Blackjack” and have a vintage feel so they hired us to bring some models out there to serve as eye candy during the tournament and the pre tournament kickoff.

Sea Creature with Squidbillies!

I’m not really sure what this is but I guess it’s a creepy Octopus Squid thing with crazy teeth, and he hangs with a rough crowd that’s Earl and Rusty hanging out there… Don’t touch the trim!

I shot this in my garage prior to it being loaded with tools and crap. These came out pretty cool. The oil stains on the floor actually give it a really gritty look. I was really diggin’ how the blue in the car and the flower pop together. The rockabilly ones are pretty tough but we were pressed for time I wish I had a little more time to do those.

Gieshas & Dragons & Foo Dogs Oh My!

This was a leg sleeve project I worked on for a client of mine he had a small tattoo to cover on his ankle where the rock is. We actually did the foo dog almost a year earlier then did all the other stuff.. I would have preferred the geisha on the outside of his leg not the inside but.. just a lesson kids always plan ahead!

This is from an old photo shoot with Amanda. It’s with my 1928 Model A shortly after it was finished. It started raining right before we shot so I had to use a pop up tent to keep us dry.. It Came out ok, but I'd like to retry this one again one day.

One night out at the Koopa Disco-tech, Princess and Luigi were sampling some of the finest "Yoshi Blow". One thing led to another and now they've got themselves a little "situation".

We couldn’t decide on which clothing would be best for this shoot so we did a few different styles. A couple more lacey and girly and one more can-can old west style. Amanda and I scouted around for the chairs we used (that look like a small sofa) We also came across some cool end tables that worked great. The hardest part was finding the flask, which I now find everywhere I go. The whole set up is in my living room including fake wall. If you look real close I put myself into the photographs on the wall all old timey and shit.
