Kansas City Ink - Family Style

A few months ago I posted about Kansas City Ink's newest artist, Emma.

She had just made a big splash onto the Kansas tat scene with her wide range of talents.  In true LA Ink style, Emma made KC Ink a family shop.

Meet Kansas City Ink's newest tattoo artist, her brother Ryan.  I had no idea that Ryan had any type of tattooing skills until this morning when I discovered him tatting his sister.

 Emma was a very patient client and willingly stayed still while Ryan worked on his master piece.

While Emma's designs lean towards more free form with flowing lines...

 Ryan's designs are much more linear.  (I suppose taking my children to church is paying off.  It looks like Ryan is giving Emma a cross.)

This was a joint effort.  Emma had already inked herself when Ryan decided to add is own touches.  If you look closely, you can see who contributed what.

Apparently, Ryan is now taking new clients.  Reserve you space today!

Ryan might have some customers in Pigeon Forge this weekend! I suppose all is well if he doesn't try to make anatomically correct R's on his sister :-)

LMAO - love this :-) my kids are constantly coloring on themselves too.

I was so embarrassed when we had a family photo shoot last week and the photographer asked if she could get some pictures of the kids shirtless... i protested, but eventually took their tops off. i warned her they had played with markers earlier, but i don't think she quiet expected the volume of ink they had used. hehe.

she says she's talented with photoshop, but i'll be SUPER impressed if she gets those pictures looking good!!!
