Hey folks. @hopegallerytattoo is hosting 2 walk-in Flash tattoo days. October 29th. Is all Halloween, and Sunday November 5th. Is squirrels (to celebrate the fall season, and the tasty lil fuckers). All flash should be in the tradition of the events. I will pay or trade for copies (not looking for originals). 11x14, or 11x17”, please include line drawings. DM me for info. Thanks for looking! #flashtattoo #walk-insundays #rememberrememberthe5thofnovember
Professional tattooers. At risk of informing the lazy masses looking to get into our trade. It’s come to my attention that this IG account is using professional tattooers work to help promote themselves and this so called “Tattoo Course”. Not certain how many of the tattooers featured are aware that they’re being exploited. Just thought id throw it out there for you all to have a look.
Having some fun with this big ass witch on this leg piece. Can’t wait to put some more time in on her. #witch #tistheseason #capogal #easyglowpigments #whatsnottaliketattoosupply #hopegallerytattoo #wip #hivecaps #itsafriendshipnotasponsorship

Coming to @hopegallerytattoo The art of mr. @rodneyraines Saturday November 4th. #Repost @rodneyraines (@get_repost)
You'll be happy to know I started the #12stepprogram recently. It's where I run up and down the 12 steps between my kitchen and my basement to paint obsessively, as needed, every hour that I'm not tattooing. It's the only way I can get ready for my art show " THE END MAKES ITSELF HAPPEN" at @hopegallerytattoo hosted by @joecapobiancotattoos and the gang. @darcynutt and I will also be tattooing if the opportunity arises.
Yes, please. #Repost @explorertattoo (@get_repost)
Ever scroll through Instagram, see a tattoo & wonder, "How'd they do that?" Us too. Usually we are looking at a @teresasharpeart tattoo. You will get to hear exactly how that's done. Teresa will be covering a lot of topics & taking questions to help you grow as a tattoo artist. This is a career changing opportunity. Do not miss it.
Got to finish this stormtrooper gal today. Will post healed Picts soon. #easyglowpigments #whatsnotaliketattoosupply #hivecaps #itsafriendshipnotasponsorship
Got to snag Picts of this basest hound tattoo from a couple months ago. Lotta fun, love the way it healed up. #easyglowtattoopigments #whatsnottaliketattoosupply #hivecaps #itsafriendshipnotasponsorship #sanidermaftercare
If you’ve not had it, find it. Another fine product from @wp_kennedy @backbonebourbonco a 4 year reserve, straight Rye Whiskey. Dang tasty! #backbonewhiskey #bonesnapperxray #oldboneswhiskey
Finished this thigh piece the other day. Lotta fun. Sorry for the glare. A bit of it was healed a couple weeks. Made for bad photo taking. Will take healed Picts soon. #capogal #bloodpuddin #easyglowtattoopigments #whatsnottaliketattoosupply #hivecaps #vampy #vampiregal #colortattoo #hopegallerytattoo #itsafriendshipnotasponsorship

These are the two small paintings I did for our next collaboration with @blackhogbeer These were@done on toned paper with acrylic, markers and pencils. They are shown here on my iPad in Procreate where@I put them together (as they were painted separately). A lot of fun. Can’t wait to try the beer! We’ll be doing the can release at @hopegallerytattoo Sunday November 5th (same day as our Squirrel walk in Flash day). So line up early for samples, and keen tattoos. More@to be announced soon! #twogreattastesthattastegreattogether #stout #leavesamark #blackhogbrewing #hopegallerytattoo #popup #acrylicpaint #mixedmedia #tattooedhands #lookmomnoboobs
Hey all. Who’s coming out for this October’s @explorertattoo to heat this handsome feller spread some knowledge? Really looking forward to hearing what everyone has to say, and talk a little shit myself.
There hasn't been a more proficient teacher in the history of tattooing than @russabbott. Chances are, you already know his work, the Abbott Color Wheel, & @tattoosmart. Russ is in the business of making amazing tattoos & teaching. Bring extra pencils & paper because you will want to take a lot of notes.
Cheesy as Fuck. But needed to have em! Elvis Presley McCormick Bourbon whiskey decanters. No to decide which one of these lil guys to crack open.... #elvispresley #theking #whiskey
