[...] it must be kind of neat to see your work walking about.
Thanks for the kind comments. I definitely get a kick out of seeing my work. Specially pieces that I haven't seen in a while. The viking on the arm, for example, is one I never really see around any more.

My day job

As some of you may know, by day I live the life of a wild and crazy tattoo artist. I've never really shared much of that life here but now as I am closing shop (soon to undertake photography on as a full time gig) I thought I'd share a few images. I did this one today.
