    Nobody’s Darling Tattoo

    Tattoo by in Traditional Tattoos.

    I made this heart and dagger tattoo for David this fall, we have been working on his arm for a while and are starting to fill in some of the smaller spaces--it seems like almost everyone ends up with a good, dagger-shaped space!

    Lady Trieu Tattoo

    Tattoo by in Traditional Tattoos.

    I made this Lady Trieu tattoo for Karla a little while ago, in honor of her daughter. One of the coolest parts of tattooing is you learn so much about so many different things--I didn't know anything about this story from Vietnam until Karla asked me to work on this project with her.

    Nolan got this boar head with a spear going through it tattooed on his inner arm a few weeks ago.

I also really enjoy tattooing gory imagery, which would probably surpr...

    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...
