Huff stuff.

To my surprise; I got word my tattoo photos were on the front page of the Huffington Post the other week as they listed the shop I work at American Electric Tattoo Company as “top 5 best tattoo shops in LA to get tattooed at” or something along those lines. That was super random & awesome! Thank you HUFF! You guys rule.
Attached are some random works of mine from this past week.

Focused

Focused on my skill, steady moving forward on my art work every day… I’ve been so slammed with tattoos, paintings, drawings & these new projects I’ve created that I’ve been trying to focus Less on blogging about myself lately.
I’ve got a new direction with this blog as of the next month, I’ll be doing small write ups on people whom I look up to and value or get influence from along with the photographs I’ve shot of them with a short pov write up followed by a small q&a. It’s time to give back & support the supportive.
I will however be posting my artworks and such little write ups about myself as often as I can (more constantly then theses past couple months).
Check back every week or so please & if anyone wants to get a hold of me please email me at vampotna@gmail.com
Thank you.
