I got to do this skeleton hand and hourglass tattoo for Michael last week. Images such as hourglasses and pocket watches are popular in tattooing, perhaps because the permanence of a tattoo is a reminder of time to the wearer.

I got to do this skeleton hand and hourglass tattoo for Michael last week. Images such as hourglasses and pocket watches are popular in tattooing, perhaps because the permanence of a tattoo is a reminder of time to the wearer. Unlike most other methods of measuring time, the hourglass concretely represents the present as being between the past and the future, and this has made it an enduring symbol of time . The hourglass is often depicted as a symbol that human existence is fleeting, and that the “sands of time” will run out for every human life. The image of an hourglass often appeared on pirate flags, to strike fear into the hearts of the pirates’ victims. In England, hourglasses were sometimes placed in coffins, and they have graced gravestones for centuries. The hourglass was also used in alchemy as a symbol for hour. Thanks Michael, it’s always a pleasure!

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!

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 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!

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 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!
