One of my favorite skull rings. This guy was fun to make.. Hard to imagine possibly letting it go.
Summer is here and it is time to regroup. July is typically a slow month for tattooing. Everyone is on vacation or on the lake. Meanwhile I am working on tieing loose ends for projects old and new. I finally printed a new portfolio with 4 years of "new" work. It's hard to believe its been that long since I have updated my book. I have t shirt and sticker designs ready to print and a few custom rings ready to cast. Rings will be available rarely as they take some time to make and I really only do it as a hobby.
With all of this going on I am working hard to make time for myself. I have worked long days and nights without break for most of my career. Recently I have been sticking to actual store closing hours and not working late. I have been taking 5 minute stretches hourly. Drinking more water, less coffee and generally taking better care of myself. One day soon maybe I will quit working on my days off... Baby steps
