A Baby's Footprints Surrounded with Crowns

Taken from the hospital birth records these footprint will leave a long term mark on the proud dad. Tattoos with negative space adds a certain dimension to the image. Light rays starting from behind the footprints appear to pierce  through the crowns.

Harlequin and Joker tattoo design.

This is a tattoo first started by another artist and the customer was left hanging with an incomplete tattoo. My addition of the guns and Harlequin finishes off their original design. Not an easy task when the first tattoo was not at any real point of completion, but the final result are pretty good.

See, Speak, Hear No Evil Tattoo

An almost completed sleeve tattoo, featuring 'See No Evil Speak No Evil Hear No Evil'. This tattoo started with some randomly placed tattoos that the wearer was no very happy with and we set out to fix and blend the work all together. Mostly black and gray with just a hint of blood red ink spelling out the saying.

Aye Matey! There a Pirate Ship

The weather worn Pirate Ship, look like they would do anything to keep her sailing. With the wind in her sails these mighty pirates are sailing to get their booty.  OK this tattoo was inspired by his Grandfather,what a great way to remember someone you love. 


Celtic Tattoos

Celtic tattoo and the Claddagh tattoo are popular here at Tattoo Connection. Here are a couple of examples of my black and grey style tattoo work. The Claddagh  is worn as a sign of friendship and availability and even marriage. What does your ink say about you?


Images of Christ in tattoos

Just a few of my tattoos of Jesus Christ. I get to do a lot of religious themed tattoos, always working hard to capture the best images in the ink.

Showing off your heritage.

 Here is two representation of the Italian flag as tattoos. First tattoo the flag drapes over the stone cross and the second is found tearing through the skin.


Before and After Tattoos

 Reworking an older tattoo is a challenge to say the least. Always trying to improve the overall tattoo, I work on creating flow throughout the whole tattoo. Many times I find myself working on or around other people's work. So here is one of my latest fix ups, American Bald Eagle surrounded by Old Glory
