Beirut Veteran Memorial Tattoo by John Davis

  This was a really fun and challenging tattoo for me, as I don't normally do landscapes and architecture. The damage and rubble helped to keep me motivated. The owner of this tattoo is Steve "Doc" Sibille who is a veteran of this conflict.  We took some of the more iconic details of the aftermath and a great shot of the foundation of the hotel Doc was in during the conflict. All in all, it took nearly 12 hours to complete.

Biomech thigh by Chris


              Three day marathon session, 26 or so hours total.  Much thanks to Chris Howton for coming down and sitting like a champ for this one.  Photos were taken the morning after we finished, but everything is still very swollen and irritated.  Better photos of it healed will be up next month, after we finish everything up.

The Ox by John Davis

The Ox

The Ox is Todd Foster's dedication to his son. This guy sat like a rock and was always ready for a pick-up session. He stayed open-minded about my design choices and The Ox is the first project I started here at Iron Cypress. Great client, and a solid dude. Photos were shot by the talented Josh Guim.
