A Sleeve in a Day:

Big, huge THANK YOU to Jaime for sitting like a champ and getting this entire piece done in one, six hour session.  It was a lot of fun to draw up and I’m really happy with the final product – not to mention it was very cool to finish such a large project in one shot.  Enjoy!

My Calendar is Closed:

Firstly, THANK YOU for your continued interest in my work.  It means the world to me.

I have decided to close my calendar and (for the first time) I do not have an active waiting list.  There are simply too many large pieces in progress and I do not know exactly when they will be finished.  I will re-open my calendar as soon as I have finished this group of projects and we can start scheduling consultations for all the fun things you have in mind.  If you have already contacted me regarding the waiting list, I will obviously honor that and get in touch before opening scheduling.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Take care and enjoy the Summer!

Space/Dotwork Sleeve:

I recently started this sleeve on Jason.  I am extremely excited about it since it combines my love of realistic space tattoos and beautiful, tedious dotwork.  It will transition from realistic space to dotwork in the existing armband down to realistic leaves falling into water.  You can keep up with our progress on my Instagram @joy_rumore and my Joy Rumore Artist page on Facebook.

New Horizons for One and All:

Summer Ash came in for another fun and nerdy tattoo session!  This time, we tattooed her forearm with a fantastic solar system and satellite path map (I’ll let her explain here, since she is the expert) that holds a lot of meaning, both scientifically and personally.

Definitely check out her work.  Not only has she been on several media outlets as an educator, but she keeps us all up-to-date on galactic fashion.  Which is great for me, because I have this busy 15 month old (who may or may not be on my lap right now attempting to add his two cents) that keeps me from lazily window shopping.  Haha.

Thank you, Summer!  Always a pleasure!!

 

In-Progress Shots:

This past weekend, I got to work on two of my favorite things: Flowers and Space.

Alison’s sleeve of jewels, asters, roses, and violets is coming together beautifully.  Jason’s space sleeve is a huge rework/cover-up project that has been really fun to work on, too.  His existing forearm piece below will, eventually, be a spiral galaxy.

Thank you both so much for letting me tattoo you!
