surface tension

yeah, yeah. i get it, it’s just not happening. see you around, i guess.

i’ll be over here, still. doing the same stuff… you know, trying everything to figure out why this keeps happening, constantly grappling with inadequacy and incapacity, flapping wings harder and harder while never leaving the ground, doing things differently, doing things the same, falling way behind before giving up and continuing onward with enough despondence and residual self-loathing to ensure that it all comes back around and follows the same script next time around.

desolation. my summer home.

oh wait, i live there year-round.

oh. i’m 27 now, too. real cool.
at least my friends are awesome.

    Don’t be blue! :)

  3. You sound so depressed all the time always thinking that you’re not good enough or deserve to be happy?
    I could be way off on this but I think you have a wonderful amazing dog witch you love with all your heart, a lot of people would kill to be able to do what you do as a living and just have that amazing artistic talent and third you are a very good looking and charming man so you shouldn’t be so hard on yourself al the time.

    This is just what I think anyways.
    Hope you start enjoying life..

    Hey Ryan, how do I get in touch with you via email. I’d like to discuss getting a sleeve done somehow… somewhere… (on my arm obviously, I’m speaking geographically rather than anatomically) I live in the UK but I’d really like to get hold of you and discuss some ideas. I deffo want to make it happen any which way so please get in touch.

    Hey not sure how else to ask this but I am working on getting my first Tattoo. A friend of mine told me about your site and I was wondering if you had any idea how I would go about getting someone to design the tat I want. I have pictures of things I want put together but can’t draw at all. Just wondering. Thanks a ton.

  7. a) loving the lady at the top. reminicent of eckel and criss conn!
    b) mary totally got her ‘witch’ homophone incorrect
    c) beauty and beastlyness will always glow thru our veins, but the sombre blue makes us look like the ocean. the sun and the ocean… perhaps thats why all you want to do is swim?!

  8. Outstanding work! Love it! I saw your ladybird leg piece on a woman who was in Austin Texas getting tattooed at Rock of Ages. Gorgeous ink. Keep up the great work!

  9. […] LEFT – “sasha lives in spokane, which isn’t that far, but still. this is a blue-ringed octopus, which is one of the most venomous animals in the world and will totally fuck you up. one bite will kill you in 60 seconds, and it carries enough venom to kill 26 adults. oh, and if it’s not close enough to bite, well then it can squirt venom at things in the water. the lesson here is DON’T EVER GO INTO THE OCEAN.”  RIGHT – (more) […]
