Over the years, I’ve designed many tattoos for people. I did a stint as a tattoo apprentice in 2001, but decided that the medium just wasn’t for me. I already had a good career established working at some of the top ad agencies in the Denver and thought it would be a step backward to shift directions by mopping floors, sterilizing tattoo machines and doing $20 crap tattoos. That said, I am still a big fan of them. Some of the designs here are either residing on my own skin or are on friends and family. You can go to a reputable shop and get a great custom design drawn up, as many tattooists these days have art degrees. I have hundreds of black Nouveau/crustypunk/blackwork sketches available (or custom) if interested.
