It was fun while it lasted but I can’t handle seeing an artform I love controlled by a few select individuals. If art is truely for the masses then share it all. Have fun people.

These books and more were paid for with my hard work. I urge all tattooists following me to stop using ‘free’ reference. Its a huge disservice to the Tradition and directly takes away money from the artists who’s work it is. By the way @caliseowin I stopped following you months ago so blocking me is kinda pointless and to be honest bloody immature. I wish you well and hope one day you will understand the damage you are doing to an artform I love.
