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...
