Goat-fish, wooden sword fight, and pinball flippers.

It was sunny today! Thanks to tax season and some good weather, Under the Needle has been bumping the past week. Much appreciation to everyone who has come in to get tattoooooed. :D

What's up, dude?

Ok, so from top to bottom: This isn't a tattoo style I gravitate toward, but I was excited to give Dominique the tattoo she wanted and it sure does make for an interesting piece!

Northwest native style orca. Thanks Amanda!

Poppies and molotov I finished today. (Didn't do the skull and grenades). The whole project was started about a year ago. Thanks to Todd for being such a great client!

Keep it real.

Newspaper hats and wooden swords.

First session on Isaac's tattoo. It's a Kangaroo Rat and a Rough-Legged Hawk, fighting, presumably, to the death. Call me bias, but I always side with animals covered in fur. Go Ratz!

Cute umbrella tattoo. Thanks to this lovely lady for asking me to do this!

Also, thanks to Ken, for getting all those flowers and vines and pot leaves. I'll get a picture next time. And thanks to the girl who got a butterfly/stars/tribal swirls tramp-stamp from me last night. I took a picture of that one, but it came out blurry. Just google image search butterfly tramp stamp and you'll get the idea :)

I started a couple large projects this week that I am SO EXCITED about. But I have decided to hold off posting any pictures until they are further along so that the effect will be more dramatic. Sorry to make you wait.

In the meantime, here's some pictures of Jon's Poseidon half sleeve. I did the swallows too, and a tattoo of zeus on his inner bicep, which is what poseidon is pointing at.
We still have one more session for touch up and re-doing that shark tattoo you can see the edge of, in the last frame.
