I don't have any pics of the ink, I hope these will do. Got these done when I lived in Champaign, IL. I've got some more stuff. I will try to get some shots that are actually of the work.
Picture 1 - Rat Fink head on PEZ dispenser
Picture 2 - Same as 1 + flaming white wall of justice
Picture 3 - White wall and orca + gratuitous Bird shot

fingers are "hell yeah". i got started by hangin' around the local shop when i was in college - EIU Charleston, IL. became friends with one of the cats that worked there. he quit and opened his own place in Champaign - New Life Tattoos - not a christian shop btw. i helped him out for a piece. when business is slow...work on the employees :D . How 'bout you J's. what have you got/ how'd you get into it?

that is some nice lookin' work eagleson. the rat fink is rad. i've never seen the hands/wrists so heavily done without a full sleeve, what made you go for that location? it looks cool to just have the ink isolated right at the edge of your skin instead of burried in a full sleeve.

thanks. I told the dude the idea for the rat fink piece, and he immediately said it should be a hand piece. I already had a neck piece and the orca in plain view, so who was I to say no? after that the other hand seemed naked, so I added the white wall.

i have days of work, you can't see it (mostly) in an SS shirt.

started because i was a graphic (manual) artist in HS. 18 YO, tattoo for b/d present.

got lots more now. i'm into language, words, and expression. and they honor my skin.

Not much touch up is needed when the piece has been worked on for 33 hours. Plus he is really good, and he lays down is how I heal. The last thread I posted on it was the done, healed shots. Maybe sometime I will post a series of process pics, but that would take a while to put together, so when I am bored and have an hour or so to seek them out and resize and all that.
