[healed up praying hands tattoo i did almost 3 weeks ago]
[custom freehand darkside work - in progress]
[baby girl for a neighbour's arm -Jan '07 ]
[ currently using this brand of grey wash ink since mid June '07 ]
Well, as usual , kind of hard to sleep, so dig out my older tattoo work pics, and stumble
Across one of the few grey wash pics i did for a clients and friends . Shabby work which
I believe I can have room for improvement. Most of my greys wash works I did; I simply cut my black ink with Listerine or witch hazel at various tones of grey. Just seems too monochromatic to me. As of now am switching to this grey wash
Ink by silverback.
4 tones of awesome grey which i strongly believe can kick start my grey works into more dynamic art pieces. it’s very diluted and am slowly accustoming to it. So far the results are good.
[sick headless mofo!]
[1st attempt of black & grey Buddha]

[ for my workmate azmi , Joe capobionco influences - pin up face]
Days have been real fast for me lately, haven't have much time to catch up with myself and doing the things i love besides tattooing ( which is my passion, of course! ) but i try not to be too involved with work outside my workspace, i guess i just need an outlet to let it all go, it all seems so fast and it all happens so quick . And gosh, before i know it , i already felt so burnt out. guess i just need to feel loved again and
hang around with more positive peeps with
good vibrations flowing towards me. Heh!

[Cover up of a skin tear chucky , 2.5 hr job)
[this is a subtle new skool buddha, its a reprodution of a original tattoo work by a artist called brandon bond ]
this quote from one of my fav songs by taking back sunday - my blue heaven .
And it's all too familiar
And it happens all the time.
All the cards begin to stack up,
Twisting heartache into fine
Little pieces that avoid an awful crime,
But it's you I can't deny.
