    Hello, I have been tattooing in Madison,WI for 9 years.In addition to tattooing I paint in various mediums and tinker with machine building.My life in tattooing started at a shop that I would consider the "puppy mill" of the Midwest. I was ,and still am grateful for the chance to learn and work with a group of artists that I will be friends with forever.I spent a year at Capitol City Tattoo and worked with an awesome crew there and then struck out on my own about 3 years ago.I own and operate Tailor Made Tattoo and I love what I do.

  7. I don't enjoy doing full paragraphs of lettering in a "type face" style.If someone asks for something "hidden" in their tattoo,such as lettering or a name,I ask them......Why are you getting something tattooed on you that you aren't proud enough to wear openly in the world? I was taught to tattoo anything that walked in the door and I hardly ever turn down a tattoo.I just cannot understand the reason that people want to mess up a perfectly nice tattoo with,names.initials,vines that turn into names,names in white ink,names hidden in flowers,etc.. I wish more people in this area would figure out what they want,stop watching TV and get a tattoo that in no way involves a sad story or their favorite 15 lines of Sylvia Plath poetry or a half page of bible verse tattooed with brown pigment.I quit doing solid bands around anything and I have never tattooed a face.I don't believe in it.Inner lip is fine.I just tell them that it's going to be the most painful and expensive 10 minutes they have had in a while.
  8. I had a client that got a full on pedicure before the appointment. I gave the guy a free shirt and print for his trouble and my surprise over the whole deal. People,Your sandals smell like hell and if your feet muddle about all day in them,then your feet smell like hell. Please make it easy on the artist and WASH YOUR FEET! You can walk in and feel confident in your body and the artist can get to work with the machine.One hand washes the other.
