SO lucky to get to do this job. My buddy Jake gave me line "Between the moon and you Lunacy is setting in." Not only is Alkaline Trio one of my favorite Bands, Little Needle is my favorite Alkaline Trio song. He told me to run with it he had given me freedom to do what ever. I didn't wanna do just another band Tattoo, I wanted the tattoo to get the point across so if any fan of the band would see would know what it was, or to any other on looker the piece would stand on it's own. I thought a Neo-Traditional design with lots a color would be a good route to go. I stuck with more muted colors, and kept my line work very straight forward clean and solid, the old bold will hold treatment, not many if any double lining at all. Jake is a great guy a made the job a pleasure we took our time and had a great sesh. Jake, anytime my friend your always welcome in my chair.

A fallen priest from Hakkostu-San(skeleton Mountain) region of Japan, Ajari Joan fell in love with a beautiful girl, a grave sin for a buddhist priest. His shame turned him into a demon and he ravaged and destroyed his own temple. In his old age he re-pented in deep prayer through a supreme act of will. While praying for redemption , his body rotted away, turning him into a skeleton. From the book HAUNTED by:Dave Fox this is more of a rendition of Ajari Joan rather than a reproduction, It's Dave Fox's art work but small adjustments were made to make it a bit more towards Bruces Ideas. I had so much fun on this job i was sad when it was over. Can't wait to get healed pics I put a lot of yellow highlights in this one can't wait till they show. Enjoy:)
