Native Beauty

Tattoo by in Traditional Tattoos.

I got to tattoo this pretty native gal on Marissa not too long ago. This is by far in my top five favorite things to tattoo. Native American imagery is especially enjoyable to tattoo as it conjures up feelings of old Americana. My only real qualm with it is it frequently walks the line between being...

Red Headed Pin Up Girl Tattoo

Tattoo by in Traditional Tattoos.

This lovely gal is tattooed on my client, Jason. Jason has been an exemplary client, giving me lots of freedom in designing his tattoos. In this case he wanted a pin up girl tattoo, and being that he is a very proud red head, we had  to give her some bright red hair and freckles.Thanks Jason for bei...

Lion Tattoo

Tattoo by in Traditional Tattoos.

Happy Thanksgiving! Here is a lion tattoo that I made on my very old friend, Jake. I love the lion as a tattoo design, it's such a powerful image. Really any fierce predator works so well as a tattoo design, but specifically big cats are the best. I'm surprised you don't see many traditional lion ta...

Dagger Tattoos

Once again I let quite a bit of time slip by without posting on here, so still playing catch up. Here we have a couple dagger tattoos that I tattooed last spring. Dagger tattoos are some of my favorite images in the tattoo world as they are so versatile and can pretty much be worked into any design,...

Full Back Wolf Tattoo

I got to put this wolf tattoo on Ciara's back some time ago. I couldn't be happier on how this tattoo turned out. Ciara came in to Sea Wolf Tattoo Company as a walk in looking for a grim reaper tattoo. She casually mentioned she was also in the market for a wolf tattoo on her entire back, I was very...

Pretty Lady Tattoo

Tattoo by in Traditional Tattoos.

Well, it's been quite some time since I've posted anything here. With the shop continually getting busier and busier, I find it hard to make time posting on the website. So I will be playing a bit of catch up with some older tattoos. This pretty lady tattoo was done a few months back on James, a tal...

Wolf Tattoo

Tattoo by in Traditional Tattoos.

I had the pleasure of putting this snarly wolf tattoo on Kevin. Kevin had a small tattoo in need of covering, so we snuck it in the forehead of this wolf tattoo, which worked out swimmingly. I think of all things used for cover ups, the wolf tattoo, or any dark hairy animal, works best. The idea is...
