      THIS IS A SITE FOR ARTISTS, NOT CLIENTS (Please read before posting)   04/18/2018

      I'm seeing a lot more questions from people who are looking to get tattoos, asking about ideas, healing instructions, etc. These are questions you should ask YOUR  LOCAL TATTOO ARTIST, not random people on the internet. This site is specifically for tattoo artists and those looking to get into the trade by way of an apprenticeship. Don't be shy! Google local artists and drop by a shop or two, check out their portfolio of work and talk about your ideas with a professional who can help you achieve the best tattoo experience. 

       Thanks for reading!

  3. Drawing For Portfolio.

    So for a while now i have been setting myself up to set up a portfolio and finally look for an apprenticeship. Here are a few drawings i done last night. I want to focus more on traditional american so these will probably not be put in to the folio. Critique welcome. Oh and here is 2 of my realism drawings just to show i can draw. lol.
  4. Sword Eye

    I was at the doc today and drew this on the back of my medical history report. Just for funsies. Resolution might be weird cuz I took a pic of it from my phone, emailed that to myself and then resized it and uploaded it here. It was about 3 inches across. Thanks, Vf
  5. Memento Mori Sketch

    Here is a rough sketch for a memento mori themed design. I know that like most things this has been done (better) a million times over but if you know me, I love skeletons and that is how this idea was born. I thought it would be cool to have a skeleton trapped in a glass container, that turned into an hourglass, install a banner (shitty writing, I know. But it's just a start.) and add the other elements to it. I put a lid that looks like it was opened with a can opener as a symbol that there is an, "escape route" the meaning of which will be left to your interpretation. The roses came last and I am not loving them, they may make it to the final draft and may not, what do you think? This will have a completely different feel in black and grey pencil on paper. This sketch was done next to the last sketch I submitted to the daily doodle section, titled "Bad Dreams." Why that matters, I don't know. Thanks for your looks and comments/ critiques. I'll post the progress on this... VF
  6. Eagle

    Here is a drawing of an eagle. I took a copy of an eagle that I found in a library book and went off of that alone. I tried my best to capture all the detail the copy would show. Thanks everyone, VF
