my friend Taron's fabulous software.  It is a work of love, long hours, and dedication to the arts.  It is by far the best painting program, to use, to create a painting with real fluid dynamics.  Take the time to learn it, I personally am investing many hours to learn this.  It will get better and better.  It challenges your brain to "think out" what you do first.  Make mistakes and learn this evolving tool.  This man is a genius.

World Travelers are welcome, find me and the shop for your custom work and unique experience.
So far I have tattooed people from Redmond, Duvall, Bothell, Kirkland, Renton, Portland, North Bend, Bellevue, Woodinville, Everett, Conconully, West Chicago, Sammamish, San Diego, Nevada City, Seattle, Albany, Canby, Lynnwood and more, and various other states of the USA, even Rhode Island. whew!
Tourists also from Australia, Canada, South Africa, Europe,
Russia, India, Asia, Germany, China, Japan almost everywhere.

I attempt to distract people from their daily life
and make this a different website.
You will finds links everywhere in between the art and tattoos,
allow yourself to explore fun theories, UFOs,
ancient archeology, vastly different civilizations
and return to study details in tattoos.

Call to book your appointment, that is preferred
because I hike, bike, kayak, and generally live an artist lifestyle.

One of my most favorite passages of prose from the writings of William Blake.
To me it is beautiful and sums it all up:

"To see a world in a grain of sand
and heaven in a wild flower,
hold infinity in the palm of your hand
and eternity in an hour."

There are some haters of everything in the world, let them try to please others
and deal with people like them.  They would soon change their ways. 
Click the Avatar of any hater in a review on the net
to see - that they always hate - everything they review.
It takes lots of work to make a business and make it diverse and interesting to all.  Open you eyes, your mind might follow.  Every public figure has to deal with critics and haters. Every actor, artist, sports figure and more.  Yet a hater tries to destroy for no reason a lifetime of effort and work by another, make up your own minds. 
The net has valuable learning information. 
Learn something, today, for the betterment of yourself
and succeed where others fail.

Each tattoo is important to the customer and may have many special connections,
so I respect that and keep it about you.
If you are shy, you don't have a lot of chaos or crowds to distract or confuse you.

On the far left, without ink, is my client's skin condition after a botched medical procedure.
Her skin was like the photo on the left after two (2) years healing, prior to the new tattoos.. 
The middle picture and the far right picture show the same area after I tattooed it. 
Pictures are a tad fuzzy, but you can clearly see the improvement. 
An excellent way to deal with scars, pigment irregularity or other skin and medical issues.
More examples of covered up, retouched, and reworked tattoos.  
Just a few so you understand I do this well.  Why spend thousands of dollars for tattoo removal? 
When it can be professionally covered up with a fresh tattoo by a pro.
Hold yourself to the same standards you will hold me too. Let's respect and treat each other fairly.

World Travelers, Microsoft & Boeing employees and engineers, Visitors from out of State, this is where to get your ink.  Especially if you are picky, and have complex artwork.  Show me your designs, or discuss them and get inked.  I love a challenge - love conversation, and joking. 
Think of this as a field trip into a world of it's own.  Stimulate your mind, body, and spirit.  Live life like it was your last day alive, be real.
You expect your artist to be a bit eclectic, eccentric, and screwy - you don't want the same experience as visiting your stock broker, do you?
What value does he bring to the table?  Buy art, buy tattoos, these have lasting value, and make you feel good every day!
Oh here is a great stock tip, two days later it is worth, half the thousands you gave that buffoon,
but 20 years later your art and tattoo are still giving you pleasure and adventure.
In addition to this, if you are serious about your art - and are here visiting from New York, Chicago, Berlin, Thailand,
or anywhere that appreciates the arts - stop buy and browse the paintings,
no need to get tattooed to purchase my artwork, thanks.
If you collect art and would like to see 50 or so paintings of my work,  please call for an appointment to view the paintings -

You already know I can tattoo anything you come up with.  These links and discussions of alternative things make a website fun.
Let me know when you walk in if you are afraid of a lively conversation, then it will be just about the tattoo.
Take some time, click the photos to see details, surf the tabs up top of page, relax - pamper yourself. 
Honestly the 2,000 images of my work encompass a vast variety.
If the links to fun, controversial, different things other than tattoos disturbs you, look at the pictures.

Digipen Artist, his design.

Wesley's Digipen buddy drew a Samurai with a gas mask and
 I tattooed it on his upper right hand side - shoulder blade.

So I got a 1969 twenty dollar bill in circulation
and thought it may be worth more than face value of twenty. 
It isn't unless uncirculated.  However I found this helpful money website.

A bird native to the Northwest is the "Stellar Jay". In the example above of the Stellar Jay I added a drop shadow to show dimension away from the body.  It appears to fly in a forward motion around the client.  Happy, bright, and uplifting tattoo, this tattoo will age well and become more like a painting over time.  This was all done in a single sitting on a perfect client - who enjoyed every second of the session.  I was asked if I had a line work shot , the other day,
I do and it has a trickle of blood for you Vampires.

To view more similar tattoos please visit "Ribcage & Torso" tattoos -

They are difficult to do, look very sexy and intriguing, and are like a hidden treasure.

The beginning of my video channel.
I am beginning a YouTube channel.  I knew nothing of how to set it up, load a video, make a video off a laptop, or monetize them.   So my real goals in this venture are to show some insight into my life as a living artist.  I will be writing and reading my sci-fi novel, explaining my thought process behind my artwork, perhaps discussing my tattoo shop, and everything and anything that occurs to me to be relevant.  Using any search engine, just type "Onaquest1618" to locate it
or if you are here on my website homepage use this link below.

and then went for it - a fresh hot "Tree of Life" tattoo.

This was just the first sitting, more will follow, once this heals.
She can succeed at anything she sets her mind to.

I keep this website lively, very much on the adult side, sometimes controversial, sometimes challenging, always amusing.

A little "Northwest" imagery for you my viewing audience.
This tattoo and many others on the torso you see
throughout the website are in sensitive areas. 
These tattoos, during the tattooing process,
invoke a variety of sensations: like tickle, pain, energy, and more. 
They are powerful sensations and one uses mind
and body control throughout the experience.
This allows the client to partake in a physical,
emotional, and spiritual experience.


All year round you can get tattooed.  Make up a reason, think of it as a stimulating break from the daily grind or boredom.  Start a new path in life - marked - by a pivotal moment and a symbolic tattoo.  Truly try to live each day to the fullest and fulfill your dreams.  I actually get in a "mood" or a "rut" some days and need to just do some random adventure myself.

Hi, it's me again, "Doz", your host.

We all need to re-focus from time to time as to what is satisfying and rewarding and meaningful to ourselves.  Share a conversation - it's free.  Share a back rub or massage, make a delicious meal from scratch.  Or get pampered in a spa.  There is nothing that will give you a greater return over the years than a tattoo with an event or person connected to it.

When you just do a walk-in on me I may be caught working on my website,
checking in a Fed-Ex or UPS box of supplies,
answering the phone, or in a discussion with a client,
so please be patient if I am engaged for a moment.

By the way, all the beautiful new Harley's you see coming
and going belong to employees from Microsoft, Boeing, Fireman, Policeman,
& working people from all phases of life here, no gangs or anything scary like that.
These guys & gals love the Northwest and love to ride,
and what better place to ride your bike to - than the local tattoo shop. 
So fear not, just walk in, they are people like you.
 Men and women both ride Harleys to the shop!

I for one, am sick of the USA government
and their vandals defacing our, the peoples of the planet earth ancient heritage. 
These Petroglyphs in the USA, may have in fact,
been painted up high by the aliens we seek to make contact with.

December 22, 2010 - couple of tattoos for your viewing pleasure.

9/11/2010 and 9/12/2010 tattoos: Puzzle/Tree/Birds,  Live/Laugh/Love,  Custom Cross and initials.

A husband, wife, and wife's aunt decide to get tattoos.
They choose : Her son's initials, "Honor", and Michael Jackson.

A dedicated family man and one of our local Fireman gets a symbolic Northwest Indian Design.
On October 5, 2010 he added a "Moon Shadow" style tattoo.  The use of a midnight blue is unique.
Then a "feather with initials inside it, as it is a "memorial" tattoo, in honor of a friend who is now deceased.

A man and his fiancée share a personal symbol.

A new client gets a Yin-Yang with a twist of a satellite moon.

Ok, back to the business at hand.  Survival.  Together we are all surviving this roller coaster economy.  Sometimes it is a good thing to buy a close friend, or loved one a tattoo for a gift.  When you give a tattoo the person will really dig the gift and remember it for the rest of that individual's life.  It is a gift that truly keeps on giving.  It is personal, gives that someone freedom to select something meaningful for themselves, and forms a lasting bond between you both.  If you know someone getting divorced, getting married, getting a new job, losing a job, graduating school, being promoted, wanting to commemorate a death, recall an experience or other event or moment - a tattoo is a fantastic gift.  Besides they will think how cool a friend you are not to get them just another ordinary gift.
 When they look at it daily, they will remember you also.

I wanted to find an audible timer on the internet to use for meditating or cooking. 
I found a great website for timers.
I like the egg timer, it is an hour glass, with audible signal when time is up.

"Dragon fusion Tribal swirl."

Savannah gets a
secret tattoo.

Kool Tattoo.

"Start Love, end Hate".

Bill deliberated for a while over all the symbolic importance to convey in his tattoo. 
Together we came up with this design.

A newer client has found tattoos to be to her liking.  She now has 3 and is planning her next one.

Neil gets a Samurai and an Oni (disguised as a Geisha), with the Oni's real reflection in a rice bowl.

Two young ladies bond with new tattoos, 5/6/2010.

Today 6/05/2010 I began to tattoo a mom (who is 72) and one of her 3 daughters. 
All will be getting variations of a tattoo remembering their Dad. 
It is the combined efforts of their collaborative thoughts and themes.
Each will be tattooed on their foot.  All four are completed now, 6/09/2010.
Oh yeah, the mom brought me homemade - "Pie Cherry Jam".   Also the last daughter to get tattooed made me delicious chocolate cookies.  I froze them and then thaw them in the microwave for 1 minute to eat, yummy!

A "Snow Skater", skate board on a ski, gets the Alpental Mountain symbol,
 inside a spade - like a playing card style - like an Ace of Spades - without little aces in the corner.

A Hot little "Coco Chanel" tattoo in Fuchsia and Purple, with black outline and shadows. The mood stuck her, she walked in with an idea ready to rock, a quick search of the net for the image, and "Ink Time", Bingo.
Read about "Coco" herself.

Monday 4/19/2010 - two separate women drop by for special tattoos.

A very nice couple visits.  In celebration of his birthday, he gets two Japanese kanji (peace & calm) &

A man of vision and creative designs, decides to rework, modify, and redesign a sleeve
he started elsewhere long ago.  Our first step was to define and separate the ripped flesh around the wrist, cover old lines and set the tone for the new sleeve of cosmos, planets, heavens, etc.

Second and third sessions - rip up the top flesh.

A young couple get tattoos.  Then they were off to a party.  Sunny day, time to play.

Patrick finishes of the ending to his Ivy.  However - he was talking about more ink when he left.

Brent's sleeve is nearing closure for now.  Here are a lot of photos for your viewing pleasure to study.

I did this Sic Tiki, dig it!
Celebrating her birthday -11/01/2009, the young women on the left gets an "OM" symbol. 
Her good friend bonds with her getting a "Wild Kitty". 
In February 2011 "Wild Kitty"  brought in a friend and her husband for a fresh tattoo.

A tattoo website has a worldwide audience - whether the viewers ever get to the shop or not - and that is why there is a great variety of examples, silly links and other fun things on my website in particular. 
The world lives among art, ancient remains from past civilizations, and is exposed to monumental achievements from our ancestors of mankind.  We see great architecture and miracles in ancient and modern architecture, art, farming, spiritual awareness and more. 
Somehow we need to take the final huge step and solve man's dilemmas of population growth verses resources. 
I hope the children growing up today around the earth contribute to the answer and raise man's spirit and prepare mankind  -"For the Stars".

This above 3 rows of pictures are the visual story of Lucy's "Pink Floyd's sexual flowers from the movie the Wall.

So he says," I just want a couple of colors in the water" - but - 13 colors later,
Mallard included - we finished the night. 
During the filling of the water I said. "I think I can pull it off", which is now my new catch phrase. 
We were punch drunk with laughter, who knows why? 
Thanks for the chicken dinner from your wife.

July 13th, 2008.                                   May 19th 2012.
Man gets his wings after 25 years of service.  Second time in the shop - Golden Rocket.
Curious, like I was, as to the meaning of these wings?

As you scan through the website you will see individuals from that have served or are serving in the Air Force, Navy, Army, and Marines.  It is my humble opinion that they are heroes who help make America strong and keep it safe.  Like people from all walks of life they enjoy tattoos also.  Many get tattoos identifying the branch of service they served in and many get tattoos fused with meaning symbolizing their profound feelings after having served and bearing witness to things we never have seen.  We owe them a lot and I am always impressed by their will power, inner strength and determination.  So many go on to great careers.  Some I have identified and some not, but each man and woman from the various branches I have tattooed or pierced have a deeper respect for peace and harmony than any of us can realize.  These are just a few of the heroes I have tattooed.
This ends the highlighted members from the military.


Once again I thank this town of Redmond for putting up with this crazy artist, me. 
 I change like the seasons, and am driven by my passions, opinions, and do what I can to animate and motivate my fellow humans.
I like to kid around joke, be a bit sarcastic and such - so when you come in have fun, stay loose, let down your guard and make the visit to the tattoo shop unique and different.  Make the most out of life, be enriched by a variety of experiences, and let art inspire you.

I am curious, today, what motivates people?  Knowing we all need the basics: food, shelter, and clothing - and assuming we achieve the basics, what is next?  For many individuals it is the journey of life.  What can that be?  Is it searching your soul for inner peace ( which is free to investigate), is it physical fitness and the discipline of exercise, diet, and consistency, is it intellectual pursuits (reading, puzzles, problem solving, etc. with the mind), or is it even having no path ( letting the winds of life blow you this way and that and with an open mind seeing where one in guided)?  I question you at large, my readers and clients because drawing on your present life, your future goals, your past successes, and even you hurdles you overcame is one very good way to think about a tattoo.
If you can kindle a thought and a theme or idea or message - it is a first step - be one with yourself.
I never in my wildest dreams thought about tattoos or becoming a tattoo artist.  But the rat race of the corporate life, the relentless hours of repeating same scenarios and the hard losses wiping out all I achieved numerous times caused me to really rethink my path.  Now I am not asking you to stop in the middle of the street, as you walk along reading this on an IPod and change your life.  But I am trying to "spark" in you a moment, an instant, where you can be you. 
 Please no one for a moment: "What would you really get, if say, it was only up to you?"
My family suggested that since I was a professional artist and a creative type to begin life over, as say a tattoo artist.  That decision was really a monumental one for me.  It affected me to my core, made me see the familiar world in a different light, as it were, and I have crossed paths with 10,000 humans at least that I tattooed.  Who can even count the conversations that lead no where, or the trials and tribulations to get here, the same place I always was, but imagining a different path.  Although I only speak English I have tattooed humans from uncounted countries, in wheel chairs, handicapped, weeks before their deaths with terminal illnesses, of countless attitudes: from bikers, to thugs to CEOs, to beggars, and more.  I never know what to expect, like a bartender, a hairdresser, a shrink, or any profession with the multitude of unknown human interactions.
To be a tattoo artist is far more than just "skin" and "ink". 
I challenge you, to challenge yourself.   Think of a new tattoo as you would a vacation.  For what you spend one night in a fine restaurant, and then it is gone, you can enjoy ink for the rest of your life.  Bring  in a doodle, an idea, a past or future event, but have some idea.  You know yourself best.  If you don't know yourself, start to.  Take a journey on the wild side. 
 It is a risk, an over coming a fear, a taboo, a something for you. 
This website is to make available a starting point in time.
You wouldn't be here if you didn't want to change your Karma.  I can honestly say - the people who gave some thought to their tattoo, searched the internet to show me something, or sketched a concept have the best rewarding experience.  The ones that trust me as an artist to pry into their soul, digging deep and go with original art feel very enriched as well as happy. 
My tattoos bring good luck as I share my "Chi"/"Ki" energy with you.
Below are more individuals from the surrounding area and cities.

This is the beginning of a lot of future work in the left two photos.
Now we completed the second half in the three photos on the right.
Next, third session, New design in the center of back.

8/12/2009 My man gets a wolf on a shield with feathers.  4/42010 - the other arm gets inked, "Vision Quest".

Above is a final photo from each of the four sessions that lead up to the completed tattoo as seen on the "man".
These photos are from the first three sessions.
My client spent a good deal of time searching for his image of a stylized Tribal Bear. 
His dad sat in on the second session, as a curious bystander, and we had a lively conversation.
His father is a surgeon and a great guy.  My customer was very excited to begin this project and in one or two more sessions it will be completed.  We spent the session talking about the new age, tattoos, piercings, rituals, scarifications, and more.
We even discussed the auspicious date of the Maya calendar approaching.
It is coming along nicely and there is some coloring next in shades of blue like you now see.
Ribcage and side work is very difficult and is usually 1
½ times the size of the tattoo when the person puts their arm over their head and stretches the side tight for a tattoo session. It is good to know I passed the surgeon's scrutiny while tattooing his son.
Way cool and spiritual experience,

Dragon with blue spikes, teeth, and nails.

A very nice design collaboration.

The newest painting I am working on to commemorate my 4th Anniversary
 is shown here  (as of 6/182009) as a sneak preview.
The brief description of it is this "An inter-dimensional Spirit Guide is opening a wormhole. (close up of detail) - 6/19/2009
From this fractal wormhole she is conquering forth creatures to bring to the Earth. These creatures are coming to the Jungles of Belize to begin the celebration of their existence and the fore running of the coming of the spontaneous creation of the Mayans."
Painting dimensions are 4' x 6' and is a mixed media creation, watch it evolve at my shop!
Current progression of painting.    DETAIL - Close up More work done.More work done.
More details, in the dark for you.    Second Hummingbird details begin.

Sometimes different browsers have different effects on websites - due to their competition with each other.  So, when clicking to enlarge a photo, they will open a "tab" - don't close "all tabs", just the "tab" that is open. You will catch on.
This website is finally operational, whew!  I apologize for the down time (believe me I do not like being off the web).
I added the gift certificate to the Homepage - right here - Hit it and send a loved one a gift of a tattoo and be in their mind - forever.

If you are ready to get a tattoo, are a little shy of cash, but are ready, willing and able - then walk - in, explain what you want, or show me a picture and let's work it out.  Art is my life - you want some ink - let's do this together. You can reward yourself, cheer yourself up, celebrate a new start, what ever you have for a reason.  Let's get you inked with some fine art.
The shop is clean, warm, cozy and I serve tea.
As you will see, by surfing my website, I have tackled many a challenging design and tattooed all over the human body. It is a small shop and that gives you "quiet" time away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday life.  When getting a tattoo on an intimate area: the shades are drawn, a note is attached to the door to ask visitors to respect your privacy and return later, and you can relax and listen to music or watch one of my many videos.
A new tattoo is without a doubt a truly unique and enjoyable experience. Bring your excitement and awe and an idea - then if you are serious, ready to go - I will transform your wishes, thoughts and dreams into art.

September 17, 2009.
Well, I went to bed early, slept soundly, woke up early and so I am writing at 5:20 a.m.  I surfed the net a bit and found some way cool recent discoveries.  Two of them are this:  An American student found a carved gem portrait of
|Alexander the Great.  
 Also 120,000 year old foot prints of man were verified in Tanzania.  Two very fascinating discoveries.

We need to realize man has been here a long time and at various times achieved great things.  A third discovery of an ancient wall in Israel is amazing because they said a modern electrical engineer - with modern day equipment would be hard pressed to duplicate it.

These chit chats, discussions, and such are my way of contact.

This all ties together in that if we look at the achievements man of the past made, prior to computers, you can appreciate all that went into it.  With shorter life spans, say 35 to 45 years for the masses, these achievements are unbelievable.  None of can really appreciate a 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch carved portrait on a gem, a 25 foot tall stone wall where each stone is between 4 and 5 tons - or footprints, shaped like our feet and not an apes - 120,000 years old. 

I must say these are remarkable.  May the Cosmos bless us all and save man from man.  May we awaken from our slumber to see our future together, we must if we are to go forward together and evolve.  Man must somehow colonize space and get off earth to visit distant stars - someday and/or seriously control our population and resources to ensure a future.  Our problems are far more complex than our ancestors, but without standing on their shoulders we would have never gotten this far.  Communication is so hard.  What I think one person means, what that individual thinks I mean, the truth is in between, how did man get this far - I wonder.

One more thought, throw away something today and everyday for the next week, it is liberating, and you will begin to free your soul from endless, mindless worries over things you own and must maintain, and organize into categories ( like cds, DVDs, books, tools, etc.)  save things like happy thoughts, notions of love, memories of good times.
