  • Biography
    I am an inspiring tattoo artist. My passion for drawing has been in my finger tips since before i could talk. My first drawing was of elephants i drew on the walls of by brothers room, with my moms red lipstick. She sweres i did this when i was 1. We never found any thing that could clean it off. It was there my whole child hood. Kind of like a reminder, "just because you dont remember it, dosnt mean it didnt happen". I stopped drawing every day, for a few yrs; when i dove into musical insterments while living out of my back pack and traveling for 8yrs. When i finally started to settle down with my sweetheart, we ran to Las Vegas, for the adventure... while in vegas, i picked the pen back up and began to put a portfolio together. During my search for an apprenticeship i was diagnosed, with a rare ovarian cancer. Then immediately began treatments. Now 2 yrs after my firts treatment, i am finally felling focus and creation, running into my fingetips.

    Face/Head Tattoo

    :o Beautiful work. I really love the composition and placement! I know I can handle the social stigma, face tattoos bring. Im just not sure about the toxic levels of the glowing ink... Im starting to become more comfortable with the idea of simple fine black lace along my hair line and inking my skull. I have an amazing pain tolerance. Id like to believe Im a dream canvas for an artist. - - - Updated - - - Nice, you really found yourself an amazing artist!!

    Why are bad tattoos so popular?

    Really, as a personal opinion, I'd rather not have words on me... when I travel, I want people to see my ink and think that's amazing not what do dose that say, not, I didn't know you speak English. I guess I enjoy the mystery of getting to know people and when you travel the world, you never really know where youre going to end up.... And in reality a good tattoo with out any words can show where your culture is from, but id rather use imagery, its speaks every language. but, a good example of how cultures use the same word only spelt differently in America "Blood & Honor" in Britten "Blood & Honour" I honestly thought all that amazing ink on your profile was your art work, since I did not notice the artist name by any of the work... Now, im thinking you are a collector, collecting more than can fit on your being?

    tattooing the cranium

    for the longest, ive wanted to tattoo my skull. starting from the 6th vertebrae up to the top of my frontal lobe and possibly just past my hair line. I have seen some video of cranium tats, seems they cause all kinds of issues during to the inking... I would like to hear artist experiences applying the ink and canvas experience during the healing, dose the hair growth affect the healing....

    insulting is not my intention, that is what you're insinuating. Personally, I would hope people are more open minded to points of view... as I am not here to restructure anyone, just looking for in-depth conversations. :cool:

    obviously, you are not a well cultured person.... I will say this one last time and if you still don't under stand then what ever, I cant make you see my point of view with words... different reigns have different meanings for words and different spellings, it dosnt matter if you are using an English style alphabet. the way the words are used and spelt can tell you where a person is from.... I can see how you might get confused with religion as that has broke the language border with age kind of figured some one who has been tattooing for 9 yrs would be able to see that, but im not here to restructure your brain

    true, but these are all English cultures youre describing, and yes their can still be issues, which most people don't care to talk about, its just a life style. just a personal perspective... really I agree with expressing emotion/creative energy, visually; It can speak every language. - - - Updated - - - really what gives away the region are the words used. different cultures have different spellings and meanings for words commonly used in American English

    a lot of cultures, do not like the US.... Canada and Mexico are way more acceptable to the rest of the world... so depending on the language used in a the quoted text, it really shows what part of the world you are from. - - - Updated - - - so its really a culture discrimination

    Why are bad tattoos so popular?

    I really think some people simply lack the creative vision,... Then some have such an extensive imagination they want to hear where other peoples imaginations go with the quoted text... or it could just be the love for type of text... beauty is in the eye of the beholder - - - Updated - - - personally, I prefer no text, less chance for racial discrimination. especially if you enjoy traveling, really traveling

    Face/Head Tattoo

    Just before i was diagnosed with cancer, i wanted to tattoo an elephant skull on my face. Now almost 4yrs later, Ive been contemplating glow in the dark or black light ink. Because i like the idea of blending in :cool: but, I hear it will show up as scaring in a summers tan.

    tattooing the cranium

    Originally, this post was going to be about tattooing the area where my skull meets spine. Then realized that didnt really talk about who i am as an artist... as for editing my post, im having a difficult time using this sight on my tablet.
