German Beer Stein Tattoo

I designed this german beer stein tattoo for Thomas Cloutier. Thomas told me he is a homebrewer and wanting to do something beer and brewing ingredient related. He was thinking an overflowing German Beer Stein with barley stalks coming up in the background and Hop cones/leaves/vine in the foreground. Copyright Sam Phillips

Navy Anchor Tattoo

This is a navy tattoo I designed for Dean Colwill. Dean asked for an anchor design that represents time he spent in the NZ navy between 1990 and 1995. He had in mind a traditional anchor on a single fernleaf background. Around the anchor he wanted a scroll with the letters RNZN 90-95. Copyright Sam Phillips

Gypsy Head Tattoo

I designed this gypsy head tattoo for Nerissa Ryan. Nerissa asked me to design her a gypsy head on the side, with a headscarf, few beads/brass and a couple of roses. Oh, and thick dark hair of course.Copyright Sam Phillips
