I was honored to do these memorial tattoos for a group of friends today. These are all different versions of artwork their friend made 🥺🙏🏼 🤍 ...

This was my design process for this Chang’e back piece. 🌙🌿🐇 It started off as an assignment to design a sleeve & then @pumpkinqueen444 asked me if she could book it for a back piece.

I take a lot of time designing my original pieces. I think some people think artists are magicians who can whip things up in a matter of minutes-hours. While some may be able to do that (kudos to them for being absolute beasts), I cannot.

I like to take my time to create art that I’m proud of.

That being said, I’m still accepting smaller projects but I have put a temporary hold on accepting really big projects like back pieces and sleeves until I have knocked out the designs for the clients I have already booked. I am blessed that all of my big designs I’ve created as an apprentice were claimed as well. Thank you guys for your support & your trust!

I draw or tattoo at the shop all day then drive an hour home and continue drawing designs for clients. I have absolutely no more free time & all while I’m trying to plan my wedding 😂. To my current booked clients: thank you for your patience in waiting for me to update you guys on designs! 🖤🖤🖤

August is over! That means I finished my first month of tattooing actual clients. (For me, that means it’s Halloween)

Yes, I am booking! Yes, I am still learning! I’m still an apprentice for about 5 more months.

Please be patient with me as I navigate balancing learning tattoo techniques, scheduling, & designing. I do have a list of designs I’m working on for clients before actually scheduling them for tattoos, because I’m trying not to get overwhelmed too quickly..
My machines were stolen from me before my first month tattooing was even completed.

I’m learning a lot really fast & I thank everyone that’s been inquiring about getting work done. You rule! Thank you thank you times a million.
