Finished this fun #Bayside #tattoo today. Will get better flicks when he heals and the shop lighting isn’t reflecting off him as much. Thanks for looking! #chicago #chicagoart #chicagotattoo #tattoos #baysidetattoo #music #musictattoo #spektradirekt #fkirons #electrum #nativerituals

Always nice to come into work and find some goodies! I got in my #Electrum from @oneinkseven that I’m excited to try out! My homie @lu_skywalker highly recommended then so I went out and got some. I also got in my #darllabs #fkirons @fkirons disposable tubes in! I love using Fk products so can’t wait to have these as my daily grips. If you’re a professional Tattooer check out both products! #tattoo #tattoos #chicago #chicagotattoo #nativerituals
