Nurse and Eagle

June 2, 2011 § Leave a comment

Here’s nurse that I did on Andrew. He has been getting tattooed by me since the very beginning so he has some real stinkers, but I think this is one of the good ones.

The eagle is on Vincent who always wants to get something cool. It’s based on a painting earlier this year.

Both these guys are always a pleasure to tattoo.

We’ve been hard at work this week on paintings for the lobby of the shop, here’s a couple of new ones. The lady coming out of the rose is 8×10″, the fairy is much bigger- 18×12″. Come by the shop to see the rest!

Cats and Dogs

Here’s some little ones. The little dog is on our friend Aaron Sanchez. I’m very happy with the way this one came out, especially considering the placement. The Felix is on a guy named Stu who likes cartoons. If I could do a Felix once a week I think it would be great for my mental health. The painting I did for an art show that Chuck D opened last night at Max Fish on Ludlow street. Trying to keep it crude but delicate.

One Swallow Doesn’t Make A Summer

I did this ship a couple weeks ago on Anna in Seattle. Tracy got this dagger a while ago but I just found the picture. The pigeons are on Eric and Mara, I’m assuming they have something to do with the movie The Notebook.

Tiny Dancers

I’ve been getting a lot of emails from people wanting to get tiny animal portraits lately so I decided to post the info here to make it easier for everyone.

On the day of your appointment please bring a normal sized photo- NOT a tiny one, as well as a couple extra photos for color reference and a quarter minted the birth year of the animal. Remember, the clearer the picture is the better since these tattoos are so small.

To make an appointment email me at rafterytattoo@gmail.com.This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it You can also call Daredevil at 212 533 8303 or come by the shop in person Friday through Tuesday.

I hope that answers everybody’s questions!

Crow, Mare and Squab

Here are some new ones- The crow I did on my friend Eric and has a lot of tiny stuff that I don’t usually do in it. A nice change of pace. The horse is on tony who has the gypsy woman from earlier, and I did this pigeon on Vincent at Under the Needle during my last trip back to Seattle.

 

Eagle, Snake, Gypsy and Rose

This eagle/snake tattoo is on my friend Jay who also works the counter at Daredevil. The gypsy head is on a guy named Tony, who until this had only been tattooed by Oliver Peck- no pressure. And a rose.
