Good morning #INKPLAY family!
ready for more …
Before I get into replays and artist perspective, here’s my travel update for Japan ~
We’re three episodes in with Convos with Customers and I’m curious to know what you think so far. So drop a comment and let the team know how we’re doing and what you would like to see in the series ^.^
I unapologetically challenge ideas …
One of my requirements for getting tattooed is a consultation.
Those are important to me for a number of reasons ~
・make sure I can meet your needs/ execute your idea
・make sure our personalities play well together
・create something meaningful beyond the process
It’s your skin and you don’t get it back. So I want to be sure this process and product will be something we’lll both be proud of. You know?!
No matter how large or small, I like to challenge the thoughts + ideas behind clients’ tattoos and ensure it’s beyond a fleeting moment, as Marrio says ~
One of my favorite pieces, to date, is on the fam Geronimo Collins.
As shared in episode 3, we had a friendship even before the ink …
but I don’t think we would be able to tell the story we did without it.
Geronimo + Me
Geronimo and I are long time friends. In fact, I used to help connect art/ creative lifestyle for a past platform of his.
I remember when he was tossing around ideas for his sleeves – outlining that one sleeve looks to the past and the other to the future.
Here’s what our complete vision looks like ~
