Go Big or Go Home

Hannah wanted to get a fairy and let Zack run with the idea. She also said to him, "Go as big as you want." Ladies and gentlemen do not make the mistake of telling Zack go as big as you want unless you mean it because he will, and I repeat WILL cover a very large portion of your body. Luckily, Hannah meant it and loves what Zack designed for her.





The coolest part of Hannah's design is that it is completely custom. Zack took her idea and made something that fits uniquely to her body. If you are looking for a big piece of your own, Zack is your man. He starts with your idea and uses his creativity to design a piece of original artwork bigger and better than you could imagine.

Loverly Butterflies

Ashley, a No Surrender Studios regular, came in to get a few butterflies wrapping around her ankle up her calf. Tye's black and grey butterflies are sick.

Ander Von Anderson came to No Surrender Studios to get his first tattoo by Brandon. He wanted to show his love for A Perfect Circle.

Ice Cream Man From Hell



Zack is doing an ice cream man from hell piece on Jon. He drew the design straight onto Jon's arm. Zack has been doing that quite a bit lately. He explained that by drawing straight onto the client, the artwork really flows and fits the body well.
