Girl Tattoo on a Hand

Tattoo by in Traditional Tattoos.

I did this tattoo of a girl with rose in her hand on Dave's hand a couple weeks ago. A hand tattoo is a big commitment, and I really appreciate Dave trusting me to do this tattoo for him. Hand tattoos are considered a big commitment because of their visibility---having a tattoo that isn't regularly...

Hand Holding Winged Rose Tattoo

Tattoo by in Traditional Tattoos.

I really love doing tattoos like this hand holding a winged rose tattoo, and I'd love to do more like this one. Karen has been a great client, and I really appreciate her getting tattooed by me when she's visiting Minneapolis. Karen contacted me when she knew she was going to be in town, and sent me...

Garden Spider Tattoo

Tattoo by in Traditional Tattoos.

I did this garden spider tattoo on Tracey when she was in Minneapolis for an entomology conference. The spider tattoo is a cover up of a small bee tattoo Tracey wasn't happy with, and it worked great! It's so fun and intimidating to tattoo imagery that the client is an expert in, there are intricaci...

Jared is a self-proclaimed electronics nerd who got this tatto...

This was a very fun project to work on in a very painful area, thank you so much for hanging tough and...

Queen of Hearts Tattoo

Tattoo by in Traditional Tattoos.

I had so much fun doing this Queen of Hearts tattoo for Jonnelle a couple weeks ago! Jonnelle knew she wanted to do a lady head tattoo, but also wanted to incorporate some imagery from playing cards. I think we came up with a really fun way to emulate the flat, graphic designs of playing cards while...

Bloody Wolf Tattoo

Tattoo by in Traditional Tattoos.

I was so excited to be able to do this wolf tattoo for Dan's first tattoo last week. We get asked a lot if we ever get sick of doing wolf tattoos here at the Sea Wolf, and the answer is always, "No!". Working with traditional imagery and a lot of the same ideas and themes has been a great way for me...

Nurse Tattoo

Tattoo by in Traditional Tattoos.

I got to do this nurse tattoo for Chelsea a few weeks ago to celebrate her graduation from nursing school. Chelsea is a third generation nurse! Nurse tattoos, or a "rose of no man's land" are a classic tattoo image, and it's easy to see why. Women's faces always make for a beautiful tattoo, and a nu...
