    INFO ON BOOKINGS:

    I would like to thank all of my clients who have allowed me to create and make tattoo art on you. And a thank you as well to those who are interested in getting tattooed by me. I work very hard to try and fit everyone in and get all of you amazing people tattooed but unfortunately, there just isn't enough time and I wish there was. I have no remaining appointments for 2016 and therefore decided to close my bookings until I can get caught up and focus on the clients who currently are booked.
    However, if you wish to be tattooed in 2017, I will be compiling a waiting list. You are more than welcome to visit Bamboo Tattoo Studio and we can have a brief consultation. When my bookings open up in Dec/Jan, I will be contacting those on the waiting list to come in and book tattoo appointments.

    OUT OF STEP BOOKS

    I am please to announce the collaboration between this amazing community of artists and the production of Art Books to raise money for charity.

    Quoted directly from their website - " Out of Step Books creates collaborative art books that seek to honor outstanding artists and their work. We pride ourselves on the high standards of the publications that we produce, both in content and quality of production. We are dedicated to providing readers with inspirational and informative art books, that include distinct designs and excellent editorial. We approach each project with the same level of energy, creativity, and ambition that the artists in our publications put into their work.

    In an effort to keep the arts thriving, Out of Step Books is happy to support arts education by donating a portion of each book sold, as well as 100% of proceeds from our artists print series, to donorschoose.org.

    "Art does not solve problems, but makes us aware of their existence," sculptor Magdalena Abakanowicz has said. However, problems can be solved by arts education. It is a fact that kids who are immersed in arts on a regular basis have increased test scores in math, reading, critical thinking, and science. Teaching kids that being creative and pushing the envelope artistically allows them to use those same talents in other parts of their lives. We believe that arts education is the key to solving many of the problems we face today in our world. "

    I am please to announce the release of my tattoo work in Feathers of Inspiration - The Bird Art Project that features over 600 artists from all over the world.

    If you love birds and want to be inspired, be sure to pick up your copy of Feathers of Inspiration - The Bird Art Project while quantities last.
