Riley came in for yet another super fun tattoo.

Riley has a special love for all things halloween, and found a vintage picture of a woman dressed as a bat.

Naturally it translated into a very cool tattoo. There’s all kinds of awesome reference out there in the world, especially old postcard designs and other vintage advertising. I just love when it all comes together to make a one of a kind tattoo. Those of you that follow me on other social media have probably noticed that this tattoo was posted quite some time ago. I apologize for the delay on here, I’m a few months behind with our blog and don’t want to leave out some of my favorites! Thanks for looking! -Jason

Recently I traveled to Providence, Rhode Island to visit friends and do a guest spot at Hope Street Tattoo. I love working at Sea Wolf, and its hard to be away for too long, but it is nice to get a fresh perspective and hang out with new people for a few days. This owl girl tattoo is one of the tattoos I got to do during my visit. Allison had a lot of ideas she wanted to incorporate into one tattoo, I’m really glad we were able to make them all work together! It’s a really common challenge amongst my clients to have a lot of ideas and want to combine them all into one ultimate tattoo. Allison was really great to work with because she made a couple of important decisions–she was willing to go big, and she was willing to part with some ideas to make room for others. I know we’ve said it before in our blog posts, but it really is great to work with clients who put their trust in us and are enthusiastic when we take the idea and run with it. I feel so lucky that we have such a great clientele at the Sea Wolf, it makes working on challenging projects so rewarding. Thanks Allison!

Got to do this super fun Hyena tattoo on Sam. Hyenas are the animals of the family Hyaenidae of the feliform suborder of the Carnivora. With only four species, it is the fifth-smallest biological family in the Carnivora, and one of the smallest in the class Mammalia. Hyenas, especially spotted Hyenas, are known for eating as much as 95% of […]

Hyenas are the animals of the family Hyaenidae of the feliform suborder of the Carnivora. With only four species, it is the fifth-smallest biological family in the Carnivora, and one of the smallest in the class Mammalia.

Hyenas, especially spotted Hyenas, are known for eating as much as 95% of the animals they kill, and for driving off leopards or lionesses from their kills, although they have long been regarded as being cowardly scavengers. Hyenas are primarily nocturnal animals, but sometimes venture from their lairs in the early-morning hours. With the exception of the highly social spotted hyena, hyenas are generally not gregarious animals, though they may live in family groups and congregate at kills. They also make for awesome tattoos. Thanks for looking. -Jason

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
