Myself, in a sentence
I am a twenty-something year old tattoo artist currently working at blu gorilla tattoo in charleston sc.
My favorite tattoo and the story behind it
Hard to choose, but i really love the portrait of dorothy from the wizard of oz on my left shin. when i was a kid my father sang "somewhere over the rainbow" to me every night before i went to bed. years later i got to dance with my daddy to the same song at my first wedding. that movie has been woven into my life, and as i kid i always looked up to dorothy as a strong female role model. it only seemed right that she be on my body. the tattoo was done by mike bullock, a phenomenal portrait artist.
My first tattoo and the story behind it
My first professional tattoo was done in gassville arkansas. a dog paw print with angel wings and the name lucy. i wanted to iconic "i love lucy" logo from the tv show, but i was also trying to cover up a pick and poke my ex girlfriend had done on me in my bedroom when i was 14. so the black pawprint took care of the cover up, and i still was able to commemorate my buddy. she passed away two weeks after i got the tattoo, and i think it made it easier knowing that i'd done her right before she went. :]
My next tattoo
Sky's the limit :] although i do keep going back and forth on the idea of tattooing my own left palm... wish me luck! haha
