Yes! I’ve wanted to do a crazy goat tattoo for some time now.

This goat tattoo is on one of my oldest clients, Klecko.

Klecko has been coming to me for his tattoo needs for about 6 years now. He has become more of a friend than a client, which is one of my favorite things about this job. Klecko was at a petting zoo with his Granddaughter, and stumbled across a goat. At that point he knew he needed a goat tattoo. Naturally I had to oblige. Thanks for looking!

This Vasilisa tattoo is the second in a pair of tattoos based on the Babayaga fairy tale from Eastern Europe. In the story, Vasilisa guides herself through the forest with a skull lantern lit from within with burning coals, and a wooden doll who advises her. On Kyrie’s other leg, we did the witch Babayaga with her house with chicken legs. I had so much fun doing this pair of tattoos, it is such a fun challenge to illustrate a story in a tattoo. Thanks Kyrie, good luck in Washington!

Wycinanki is the art of Polish paper cutting. Beth got this wycinanki tattoo with needles, thread and scissors worked into it because she loves to sew and knit. Wycinanki is a Polish tradition that was popular in the 1800’s. Originally, shepherds cut patterns out of leather and tree bark. Colorful and intricate wycinanki were hung in windows, glued to furniture and walls, and given as gifts. The paper can be layered to create a multi-colored design as well as punched and carved to create a more intricate pattern. Popular imagery for wycinanki includes flowers, peacocks and roosters. Thanks Beth, I had a really good time designing and doing this wycinanki tattoo for you!

Got to do this super fun fox tattoo on an old client, Sarah, last week.

Sarah has been getting lots of fun tattoos from me over the last few years, this one is definitely my favorite.

Canine tattoos have been a reoccurring theme for me at the Sea Wolf, most notably wolves. It’s refreshing to have a chance to do a red fox tattoo for a change. I’d love to do more tattoos like this, maybe some Coyotes or Hyenas! Thanks for looking. -Jason

The gorilla, largest of all primates, inhabits the forests of central Africa.

The DNA of the gorilla is highly similar to that of a human, and are considered to be the closest relatives to humans next to chimpanzees.

The name gorilla comes from the greek word “Gorillai” meaning tribe of hairy women. The gorilla is a highly intelligent creature, they can laugh, grieve, have “rich emotional lives”, develop strong family bonds, make and use tools, and think about the past and future. Several gorillas in captivity have even learned to use sign language. They also make for awesome tattoos. -Jason Walstrom

Here’s another tiger tattoo I got to do recently! It seems like at the Sea Wolf we all have a few subjects that people keep coming back for. I couldn’t be happier to be doing so many tiger tattoos! People often ask if we get sick of tattooing a subject, but I think it’s really fun and a great way to grow as a tattooer to work on the same subject matter and try new things to keep it fresh. I got to do this tiger tattoo on Will, who has been a great client this year. The more we have worked together, the more he trusts me to make his ideas work as tattoos, which is very cool. Thanks Will!

I was so excited to do this candle tattoo with an eye in the flame for Matt last week! Candles have been used as a source of illumination for centuries, but have also been used as clocks. Because candles burn fairly consistently and burn measurably, in the past they were used as a way to tell time. The candle designed for this purpose might have time measurements, usually in hours, marked along the wax. The Song dynasty in China (960–1279) used candle-clocks. By the 18th century, candle-clocks were being made with weights set into the sides of the candle. As the candle melted, the weights fell off and made a noise as they fell into a bowl. A form of candle-clock was used in coal-mining until the 20th century as well. Candles also make for great tattoos! Thanks, Matt!

Being the most popular of all dinosaurs, it’s no surprise that I have had so many opportunities to tattoo the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

I am so grateful to do these, they make for such great tattoos. I could literally do one of these a day for the rest of my days tattooing and be a very happy fella. Thanks for looking! -Jason Walstrom
