Did a cool cartoony version of a character named “Beerus” from the new dragon ball Z. So fun. I like doing this style. #dragonballsuper #dragonballz #beerus #tattoo #tattoos #dragonballtattoo
I’ll be painting along side @austinsbrain tonight downtown! Come by and see us! Should be a fun event. Have a drink, grab some food from the food trucks and cheer us on as we throw down some paint.
Got the first piece of my brush on mold done. Now to do a mother mold.
Ok. Trying a new way to silicone mold something by brushing it on in layers, then making a mother mold to hold it together. This is just the first thin detail layer I brushed on. 3-4 more to go! Looks like ectoplasm. Slimed!!! #moldmaking #siliconemold #smoothon #rebound25
Holy moly this was fun to tattoo. I love tattooing fish and birds with beautiful colors. This was his first tattoo and sat like a champ and I’m really happy with how it came out! Thank you so much! #studio21tattoo #tattoo #tattoos #marlinfish #fish #fishing #fishtattoo
Here’s a video of a sweet HR Giger piece I did recently. Love how it healed up. I’ve always loved his artwork and wasn’t even hesitant to tattoo this. Thanks for looking. #studio21tattoo #tattoo #tattoos #hrgiger #biomech
All outlined, ready to be shaded and colored.
I love drawing fun filigree stuff as tattoos. Not sure what color I’ll be doing this but most likely silvery greys with white highlights. Can’t wait to start shading this. Time to outline first! #studio21tattoo #tattoo #tattoos #stencil
Got a nice healed pic of these portraits I did a while ago. I’m really happy with how it came out. #studio21tattoo #portraittattoo #tattoo #tattoos
I put the finishing touches on this full sleeve today. It’s nice to finish a big project like this. She sat like a champ. Thanks for looking. #ilovemyjob #tattoo #tattoos #studio21tattoo
Have I told you how much I hate molding? 😑 but I’m getting better I think. We will see after this part sets. One part of 4! New tiki mug.
So I’ve been having a lot of problems with trying to make copies of my mold with silicone and pouring plaster in them... really frustrating. So I’m going to do an old school plaster mold right off of the resin copy of my new mug so I can at least start making these finally. I’ve spent many hours and money trying to get this out there in a big way and it just isn’t working right now. I’ll be molding some new stuff! Very exciting. Just frustrating when shit doesn’t work out how you wanted it. #tiki #tikimug #moldmakingsucks
I have some items up for sale. The glazes didn’t really come out the way I wanted but still are some cool pieces. I might plant some cactus in them. The monkey head is sold. #ceramics #glazed #clay #sculpture
While making and waiting for molds to dry and clay to dry I’m gonna play the new farcry. One of my favorite series of games. Don’t worry I’ve got some new stuff and news coming up! Just going to take a break for a minute and also clean and purge the garage.
Come by the shop on April 7th for this book signing party. Beer and whiskey and a raffle for a cool old gun replica. Also a selection of fun tattoo flash from Charlie. #studio21tattoo
Time to clean the garage studio today. I made a mess trying to cast plaster mold pieces from my silicone molds. I’m having a really hard time with molding lately. Can’t get tiny air bubbles out of my plaster when making molds. But I’m learning. Just sucks when your experiments go wrong and kind of costs some dough! I’m not giving up. Clean, then make a mess!
Here’s a healed pic of a dark tower piece I did. I LOVE the Stephen King dark tower book series and it was fun to sit and tattoo this while talking about them. #darktower #stephenking #tattoo #tattoos #darktowertattoo #roland #thereareotherworldsthanthese
Got a bunch of my first tiki mugs glaze fired finally. I was crazy sick with the flu and strep throat the past 4 days. Now I can get back to work! If you want to purchase one please email me or message me. Thanks for looking! #tiki #tikimug #tikilife #ceramics #clay #sculpture #stoneware
This little succulent is growing nicely in this pot I made. I love this little guy.
Late night glazing session! When painting glazes, the colors look weird and mostly brown or greyish. Once they have been fired it’s like magic and they come to life with brilliant color and texture. Can’t wait to see how these turn out. Experimenting with a few new ones I just bought! #glazing #ceramics #ceramicglaze #spectrumglazes #tiki #tikimug #tikilife #pottery #clay #sculpture
