old new york

This guy came into daredevil the other day to check the boiler in the basement. he was an old new yorker which seems to be so much more rare these days. he had some awesome tattoos on his arms but it was unclear where or when exactly he got them. he had these three and then one other that i wasn’t able to get a picture of. the fourth tattoo, he got when he was 12, was a playboy bunny with his name “donnie” written under it. this is great proof that a bold black outline will stay bold forever!

New ladies

its been a while since i’ve posted again, so heres some newer tattoos of ladies that i’ve done. the first two here are both tattooed on my brother, his 3rd and 4th tattoo. its very nerve wracking tattooing family but he was happy and thats what matters most i guess!
