December 2011


Welcome to the all-new website design, just in time to start the new year!  I'm very excited to unveil the new look, and I hope you all find it eye-pleasing and easier to use than the former version.  Thanks to the people at TattooNow, of course, for the programming work to make it happen.


To coincide with the site re-deisgn, almost every part of the site has been updated with new content, and the old content has been cleaned up and improved wherever possible.  This means there's new articles in every part of the "thought" section, including fixes to broken links, an updated FAQ, and a new and improved version of my tattoo healing instructions and pain mangement tips.  


The "commodity" section now features an easy link to buy my oil-painting book, which is almost sold out of its deluxe hardcover first printing.  If you don't have one yet, and are into the collectibility of the limited deluxe run, make sure you get on that before they're gone forever!  


Lastly, there's one new tattoo up in the "skin" gallery, and the oldest tattoo images, posted way back when I was just a rookie at Darkside Tattoo, are now fully viewable again after being broken for some time.  So you can now take a trip down memory lane and see my tattooing evolution through these 10 long years much more clearly.
















And just another reminder about the upcoming  Paradise Artist Retreat in February.  If you're a tattooer or artist, this event is money well-spent, an amazing opportunity to enrich your skills in a vacation atmosphere.  I'll be running a few portfolio critique sessions, and teaching a seminar about the secrets of glazing and layering with oil paint.  So come study, learn and create art with us amidst the peacefulness of the New Mexico desert.  it should be a really unique experience, as last year's event proved--very different from the typical tattoo convention scene.  Get more info here.


Thank you all for your continued support, and for browsing the new site.  Stay tuned for more big announcements about events and art plans for 2012!
