Some of the things I have been working on this last week or so. Thanks for looking!

Finished this one this week, the sumi on the head is still a little dark since it was freshly done this sitting but will settle in nicely and pull back a little in a week or two.

Also finished this one, one of my favorite tattoo images, Bert Grimms Sundancer. Was a lot of fun to have the pleasure to work on this one.

Couple of finishes and a couple of starts, first this one…

We had two good weeks in Japan and the first day started with having the honor and good fortune to meet the man who made one of those initial impressions upon me, if not the most profound. I was traveling with my girlfriend and we had set the day aside both to get tattooed by Horiyoshi and visit Yokohama. What can I say, It was 30 years in the waiting, and worth every minute, I feel incredibly lucky to have been afforded this opportunity . Afterwards, we sidetracked to Tokyo to spend some time with our good friend and annual shop visitor Mo, Horishige, who both introduced me to eating shark and made for a long long night of shinjuku driking. There are far worse fates to be had.

Hi there everyone, if I haven’t said it enough in the past I really appreciate any and all who take the time to check out this site and my work. Summers winding down and I am starting to make some plans for fall, the first of which would be a trip out to work in New York before fall turns into winter. I am currently looking at being at Smith Street mid November. If you have any questions about appointments drop me a line at phillips.ftw@gmail.com. Looking forward to it.

In the meantime, heres some of what I have been working on

This was a one shot tattoo for this guy, I tip my hat to him

Two points of interest

As of today the recently launched Kepler Telescope has now discovered 132 possibly habitable planets! I’m aware that restricted to the confines of modern physics, quantum or otherwise, we will most likely never make the distant leap to sight see, but they are out there, and for someone who spends half his life staring up into space its a great time to be alive. Secondly, and of more immediate personal concern, I will be taking a trip that is allowable in the known physical realm, I will be spending a few days sitting in at Smith Street in Brooklyn May 31st to June 2nd. If you’re in the area and want to make some new works drop me a line at phillips.ftw@gmail.com. Looking forward to it, see you there!

And, some new works…
