Session work

Added to this yesterday...  Not the best photos, but you get the idea. We'll add depth to the shapes on the right next time. Also, the space behind the Tui will have more flowers that flow into the shapes.

I started Allen Tattoo as a personal project.

Eight years ago I left my graphic design career and jumped into the world of tattooing.

I had always wanted to illustrate. So why not build a new career based on something I love? To draw; to build on foundations and learn.  With the support of family and friends, I started my apprenticeship at Bluebird Tattoo (Indiana). 

Allen Tattoo was used to journal and chart my learning process. 

Years later, my career has grown. A burgeoning clientele pulled time away from recording the process, so this site has sat idle... but now I'm excited to use this space. I'll be posting randomly:

  • Session work comparisons
  • Process shots
  • Tattoo details
  • Inspiring reference
  • Whatever the hell I want

 

Hopefully, you'll enjoy. Now I just have to remember to stay at this...
