Q:I wish I was closer to Ontario! Your work is amazing!
If you come down for a tattoo from me, I will create a great Khaleesi style tattoo. Most of my clients wish they were closer to Ontario! Many are from out of the continent!
Client Spotlight for Throwback Thursday
Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie
In 1998 I tattooed Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie at my studio on Carlton Street in Toronto. BBT asked me to renovate a few old tattoos that he wanted covered. Angelina requested the latin words “quod me nutrit me destruit” (what nourishes me destroys me) on her abdomen.
Billy Bob returned a second time for more renovations of old tattoos on himself and a tattoo that he gifted to Cate Blanchett’s husband, Andrew Upton. Cate came to my studio to watch while I finished her husband’s tattoo.
In 2002 Billy Bob flew Raven and I to Montreal where he was filming Levity. He requested that I design a bird of prey incorporating his initials and the names of Angelina, their adopted son Maddox, and BBT’s two sons, Harry and Willie (named after Willie Nelson). While in the chair, Billy Bob told me that he and Angelina fell in love in my studio. Their tattoos sparked a whirlwind romance and marriage that put them in the media spotlight until they separated in 2003.
Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.
