Straight From The Horses Mouth

OTTAWA
OCTOBER 21,22,23!
I'll be back in Ottawa for the convention and looking forward to being back in Ottawa for a few days. It'll be nice to see old friends and faces. I never thought I'd say I miss Ottawa, but I guess being away from something for a while gives you the break you need to not be sick of it lol. To all my Ottawa clients I will be lining up guest spots at the old shop prob a few times this winter. So keep posted here for Ink Spot dates throughout the winter. Miss the shit out of those guys.

I work with Stace at Hart and Huntington in Niagara Falls. Stace is new to deviantart and made himself an account a few weeks ago so I figured I'd spread the word. Everyone go check his shit out and add him to your watch list cuz he'll be posting some awesome stuff on here. Stace is cool to work with, but I find he hits on me too much and I have a girlfriend lol.
Maybe if I was single it would be a different story, but Stace, I'm spoken for buddy.  HAHAHA!
So everyone go look at his work, fave the crap out of it and watch him!!! I said so!!!!

I tattooed another Zindy Piece today!!
It was of a drawing Zindy had done for a girl named Kassy (who I can't seem to find on da) of a horseshoe and wings. The cool thing about this tattoo is that Zindy drew it for her as a design that she wanted for a future tattoo.  Zindy drew the design for her and suggested that she get it tattooed from me. So today Kassy flew to Canada from North Carolina just for this tattoo. Huge honor that someone would fly a few thousand miles to get tattooed by me, and also a huge honor that my favorite artist of all time recommends me as the person to tattoo her work on the clients she draws tattoo designs for!
Thank you Kassy and Thank you Zindy for this opportunity. It meant alot to me from both of you.
It's pretty awesome to be part of it all.
The tattoo is here - fav.me/d41rrn9

Here's some of Abbys work. Abby also recently won $1000.00 dollars of Annabelle makeup for an extreme makeup look that she did for them. From achieving that then going straight to becoming the new face of a Toronto based makeup brand, Abby is kicking ass at what she does. I'm proud of her.

Straight From The Horses Mouth

Well it's official,
After a slight transition I started working at Hart and Huntington in Niagara Falls Canada! I was tired of working for nobodys that wouldn't get me anywhere and it was about time I got back to business. Sure people might laugh about working for a company instead of a little hole in the wall tattoo shop, but the good thing about working in a place like this is the ability to travel and work with the swinging door of world known artists. For instance last week the 2 guest artists were Jime Litwalk and Joe Capobianco. They are both coming back in august. With this shop I will also have the opportunity to travel to their other locations which are Las Vegas, Hawaii, and Florida. Being able to jump shops lime that and get to travel to the other locations will be amazing.
I'm tired of bullshit shops who tell you lies like they travel, do conventions and support artists that want to do shit like that, so I say screw them, I'll work for a company that I can just do that shit for myself. The shop is insane, well located, and busy. When you walk in the front door the shop looks like a million bucks. I'll post pics soon.

On top of that, I will be working a guest spot at Adept Tattoos in Halifax Nova Scotia from the 11th of July to the 17th. That is the shop that hosts the awesome Maritime Tattoo Festival every year in May. Fun ass show for all of you that haven't been to it, you need to go. Best weekend of the year for me.

Also thanks to everyone for the comments and support over the past few months with our baby Samantha. She is finally out of the hospital and alive and kicking. She is awesome!
