ATTENTION if you would like a bodysuit/backpiece from me!
I have limited booking availability for 2018 and for that reason I have been working out some large scale pieces I would loooooove to tattoo and therefore squeeze into my very busy schedule
Here’s some examples of a few of my favourite larger pieces I had the pleasure of doing as some of you may remember, and I’m looking to do more based on my recent drawings as shown (swipe left)
Ideally no large cover ups involved, if you feel like committing to one of these large projects (or others, I have a few extra ready and will keep adding to the pile as time goes on) contact me through my website, thanks for lkin’ I appreciate it

Sleeve on long-time customer Danny. He had some work on his upper arm that had been lasered off, I drew most of the design straight on to make sure it fitted around what was left of the old tattoo and utilise any negative space available
It turned out to be one of my favourite sleeves I’ve worked on lately since it’s so bold and clear and knowing I had Danny’s complete trust in the finished design and layout. Cheers! @modernclassictattoo

I thought I’d share this beautiful photo of my customer @muhkennuh whom I tattooed back in 2015 when @stewart_modernclassic and I visited @greatlakestattoo
The Kali Tattoo healed great and I couldn’t have been more stoked to tattoo you Makenna! Thank you!
I look forward to returning! ️

Thank you for all your patience and interest over the last few days! I’m stoked to tell you about Everence, it is a patented technology that allows tattoo customers to add DNA from a loved one into a new tattoo or an already existing one. Whether it’s from a family member, best friend or even beloved pet.
This flexibility is what drew me to Everence, certainly on a personal level. Having just given birth to my first child and coupled with my mother’s declining health, it’s a product I can’t wait to use to honour two of the most important women in my life.
Everence is a new tool for tattoo customers, to allow you to take control of acquiring the DNA sample, sending it off, receiving your Everence and to give it to your tattooer.
As an artist, a concern of mine was whether I’d need to use specific inks, or change the tattooing process or even if it would dictate certain design aspects of a customer’s tattoo. The answer to all of those is no, it doesn’t! The customer simply takes their Everence to their chosen artist.
@virginiaelwood and @stephanietamez asked me to be involved a while ago and even though it sounded exciting, specially the science bit, it took me a little more for me to get it. Thankfully for those of us wanting to know in a little more detail what Everence is, how it’s applied etc, there’s now a live website with a very in-depth FAQ and stories from customers and some of the scientists involved.
