Originals sell for $150/sheet. Prints are $30 each.
I riff on classic themes and inject my own designs as well as popular and obscure 20th century cartoon and advertising icons.
I have been collecting tats for years and gave it a whirl as a tattooer a few years back. Arthritis made it nearly impossible to devote time to pursuing tattooing as a career so the next best thing for me is to create my own flash sheets.
I also design custom one of a kind tattoo pain-free designs that you can take directly to your favorite ink slinger or simply hang on the wall to admire.
These designs can be purchased immediately by going to my Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/monkeytoast or you can contact me directly to avoid all the fees and extra cost of Etsy.

This new batch completed this summer/fall was all sourced from found paintings discarded on the side of the road, in the trash, garage sales and thrift stores. It's all hung and ready to go as part of the One Night Stand Gallery benefit show. I've included some of the images of the original paintings as I've found them in various garbage bins, thrift stores and garage sales.
