If you are a client of mine or at the very least a fan or even worse, just some lurker lol you've known that I had been giving away a free tattoo each and every month for about a year now. Well, this has come to an end. I started this with the idea of drawing something I really wanted to do and in hopes of meeting new people and potential clients. And it worked so well that I've gotten so busy that I am finding it hard to keep up every month with a new and original design. So I've decided to end the whole free thing and move on to bigger and better things.
Don't be too dismayed all of you people looking for a great deal on a custom tattoo. Because now I am offering to do huge pieces, I'm talking about FULL sleeves, back pieces, chest pieces etc. to a lucky few. Are they free?? NO. But, they are going to be offered up at HALF off my normal hourly rate. 1/2 of $125 is $62 an hour, not bad for what you'd get in return. There are some stipulations, one being that the work take place from 12-2pm Tuesday through Thursday. I know a 2 hour session isn't much but it will give me a chance to work at a pace that will insure top quality without compromising too much pain endurance on your part. And secondly the pieces are topics or subjects of my choosing. :) Thus far the topics on the board are a super bright yet evil Alice in Wonderland sleeve, a Tim Burtons Nightmare before Christmas inspired piece, my vision is an uber colorful eye popping design.Another idea I'd like to do is a style I’m hardly ever asked to do, bio-mechanical, and I’d like to do a large piece, something with chrome and human tissue…
much like this Roman Abrego piece...
I’m also interested in doing a large scale full traditional Asian inspired back piece, like a large Koi or Phoenix. Bold out lines and brightly colored.
If any of these designs sound like something you'd be interested in please feel free to contact me at ScottDoesTattoos@gmail.com the sooner the better.
In other news you might have heard that some of my artwork will appear in the newest issue of Tabu Tattoo's March Issue, this is the first time I've been in this particular magazine so I'm pretty excited. I've also met with an amazing photographer Koji Sese who will be doing some shoots for me in the near future. I really like his work and look forward to working with him.
On the traveling front I'd like to announce some more conventions and guest spots I will be attending, next will be the Tampa Tattoo Fest in late March/ early April, as well as the Wildwood and Atlantic City conventions later this fall. As for guest spots I am in the planning stages of visiting Joseph Bergeron and company at his studio Revolution Ink Tattoo down in Leesvillle, Louisiana. Lots of good stuff planned for this year to be excited about!
