Frank & Beckie

I’m going to try and highlight clients as they come around. Frank and Bec were in the shop in Webster yesterday to get some work done on Beckie’s leg.

We were talking while they were there and figure they have been coming to see me for almost ten years. Our first encounter was actually because another shop sent them to me. At that time Frank & Bec were living in (or near?) Ithaca. They had come to Rochester because another artist in the area had been recommended to them. They went to see him and he said they would be better off with me.

That resulted in me putting this on Beckie’s back:

with the raccoon coming later to balance out the squirrel that she already had on the other side.

I did some reworking of existing tattoos on both of them which I do not not have photos of.

I’m not sure what order all the rest of the tattoos happened in so I will just post all of them below ending up with the piece that Bec was having worked on Saturday.

Some of the pieces are completed and some have other elements yet to come. Frank is taking a medical hiatus from getting tattooed.

I always look forward to them coming to Rochester and Paul and I have become friends with Frank and Bec (and several of their friends) over the years. Frank even officiated at Paul’s and my wedding.

It occurs to me that I should start getting photos of people’s faces to go along with these profiles.

Frank & Beckie – thank you for your friendship and for allowing me to decorate your persons : ) it has been a pleasure getting to know both of you.


side note for readers and tattoo browsers: all of these photos were taken yesterday. I am sure you will notice that there is a whole lot of white tattooed in Beckie’s skin. This is NOT possible on all people and all skin types. Beckie has great tattoo skin and takes incredibly good care of her tattoos. Please do not use these photos to show to your artist to insist that they can tattoo that much white into YOU. Take your artists advice to heart. We do know what we are talking about (well usually…. most of us do…. anyhow… you get the idea…. this stuff only works on the right skin with an artist who knows what they are doing)
