His work is just sick, he also uses those Neuma machines. He and the guy that makes them will be at the Detroit show in March. I might buy one of these to check them out and to pick his brain a little. Simply Amazing

tk - He's offering one on one seminars and you get to pick which type of tattoo you want to watch..color portraits, color animal portraits, black and grey..or that new grey style. I'm seriously thinking about flying out to California and doing it...its a write off too, lol. He also explains how he uses those Neuma machines. I'm going to talk to him about it in Detroit when I'm up there. I think it would be a great experience.

He is only down the road from Nikko Hurtado too. There is a lot of talent in that valley.

I know, its crazy. I might be able to do it in January..Feb and March are conventions..maybe April. But I'd definately check out Nikko as well, I still cant believe the shit he does. I'm totally obsessed with this now. It's new things like this that make me love this business so much. You wouldnt see tattoos like that style 10 years ago. I'm going to check plane tickets for january, lol

I talked to Mike..I'm flying out to Art Junkies right before the SLC show to hang with him and take his personal seminar for the day. And then its on to the SLC show. This should be really cool. Anyone near Hesperia, CA want to grab a beer? I'm flying in Feb 12th, at the shop all day the 13th, and then flying out early on the 14th for the show.

It ain't cheap,lol but its a write off and I'm hoping to get to do some photo-realism in SLC a couple days after I'm at Art Junkies while its still fresh...that's a hint to forum member insl..lol. I'm flying out a day early and hope to swing by Ingnition where Nikko works to talk to him about doing my kids portraits later in '08. TK - I'm trying now to get a booth for Atlanta in June..if you're around we should set something up!
