Thinking ahead is a constant theme in tattooing. Whether it comes in the form of composing a piece so as to complement the body and lend itself well to the addition of future tattoos, or understanding how to design a piece so the longevity of the tattoo is not compromised, or even simply planning your tattoo session around other life events to allow for proper aftercare and healing time, thinking ahead persists.


With that said and with Summer in full swing, it's time to start thinking about your next tattoo idea. If you're like me you savor your long Summer days and pack as much into every moment as possible. Between river and lake trips, camping, hiking, traveling, gardening, and all the other fun under the sun to be had it's hard to fit that next tattoo session in without compromising the work done.


Fortunately I'm booked out for the rest of Summer, but Fall is lurking just around the corner. It would be wise to set up a consultation and get that next tattoo appointment booked sooner rather than later seeing as how I'm now booking into early/mid September. This is the perfect time to start something new after all your Summer fun has come to an end, so shoot me an email or give the shop a call at 541.244.1141 to set up a consultation. You can also stop in any day of the week from 10-6 and our managers will gladly assist you.


I'm looking forward to hearing from you! Have fun out there and stay safe!
