Us at Conventions…

Us with Mr. Lyle Tuttle

Here are a few fun convention photos we found in the old files. We're planning quite a few more for this year and next. Stay tuned, we'll be updating the site with dates as soon as we decide which ones will be the most fun. This one is of us at the Art on Wheels, our first local Lake Charles Tattoo convention. Much thanks to the clients who entered, I think we ended up taking five trophies at this one. This was also the first time we worked a convention together, when we were still both under Rickie's Tattoo. This one is of our booth the following weekend, this time for the New Orleans Halloween...

Kitsune Started by Chris

First session Kitsune by Chris

Started on this thigh Kitsune tattoo this week, on a fellow tattooer from right around Baton Rouge. Great sitting, we got a good bit done on this one. Can't wait for next session, more to come soon. Sorry for the grainy photo, i had the settings on my camera completely wrong, and didn't realize until later.

Here's one I almost finished this week on one of my Leesville clients. We have one more session to tighten up a few things and finish the color. Much thanks to Curtis for traveling from Leesville to get tattooed, it's been a pleasure working with you. Finished tattoo photos will be up soon, there's even a video on our youtube account of me working on it this past session. Cheers Chris
