Welcoming Fall with some weird tattoo flash based off of traditional designs by yours truly and Matt Crabe. To receive one, call Electric Lotus Tattoo at 973-402-2777 or send me an email. Prints are also available for sale.
And we will be contributing a piece to the upcoming Phantom show next Saturday, so if you are in the Philadelphia area, be sure to drop by, have a cocktail, purchase a print, say hello.
Things have been a bit overwhelming lately, and thanks (or no thanks) to the convenience of Instagram and Facebook, I have been slacking with my updates here, at my first home that has always been so good to me.

Here is a piece I somehow forget to post, completed back in January for a group art show held at Electric Lotus Tattoo, the theme being Kiss. The show itself was actually inspired by a set of extremely rare Kiss mannequins our shop aquired in mid December from an unbelievably unique customer who's passion consists of Kiss and Ozzy Osbourne memorabilia. The mannequins were on display at Electric Lotus for a few months, until the magic dissipated and we decided it would be best to find them a new loving home.
After 3 long months of sharing our lives with these inanimate beings, our unique customer revealed to us that his reason behind parting with the mannequins was due to the fact that Satan possessed them. Suffice it to say, I don't think I ever want to hear a Kiss song or look at them again. So onto the next...

After admiring so many interpretations, I decided to paint my own Pharaoh's Horses, the photo above being at it's incomplete stage.
And last of the things I thought I'd include in this entry, the most recent tattoo I completed on my great friend Molly Moser. The design itself was part of an old sheet of flash unearthed at the shop recently. This one will heal just in time for Memorial Day, luckily.
Here is a new T shirt design I completed a few weeks ago, once again for my friends Big Eyes
AND, Just finished this commission for Road to Ruin Fest in Philadelphia. Be sure to check it out.
Lots of upcoming projects and updates to come, so don't be a stranger here at Paper Castles.
