I began tattooing around August of 2002 and life has not been the same ever since. I knew from that moment forward my life would never be the same. I love this opportunity that I've been given to make something new for someone different every day and appreciate all the people I've met and become friends with along the way as well. I love collecting tattoos and what they have done for me on a personal level and I love trying to give people a positive, life changing piece of art to wear and gain confidence with in life. It's more than just a tattoo and Thank You for choosing me!
The next few tattoos are all older tattoos that I made over 10 years ago, each of these
at points in my life that I feel like were very monumental for me.
This tattoo of an asian influenced phoenix was tattooed by myself, Craig Beasley sometime around the year of 2004/2005 and it took about 20 or so hours to make this tattoo. I really enjoyed the experience of making this tattoo, I learned a lot during the process, and this tattoo has since become somewhat of a common subject for me to tattoo for many other people as well, but never the same.
This Lion was another tattoo I made a long time ago, I think around the year 2006 or so. Another tattoo in which I learned a lot from and had a lot of fun with. We made this tattoo while traveling on tour with Fall Out Boy, it was done on a really good guy that was working with the band at the time.
This tattoo tells the Egyptian story of Osiris, Isis, and Seth. I made this tattoo around the year 2006 and learned quite a lot during this process. Not only about art and tattooing, but myself and people, as well as growth with your client and the entire process. I really enjoy the style and concept of this.
I began Monument Tattoos in 2010 with the help of my amazing family and friends. In the beginning it was meant to only be a small private studio, but over the years has grown to become so much more than that. We are located in the amazing capital city of Tallahassee, Florida at 1233 Monroe St.
I consider this Monument Tattoos to be a home away from home and a proud work of art in itself.
When we found this location in 2015, I could see a vision immediately and the process began.
With the help of friends and family, we made something very special to me and I love spending time here making tattoos with my friends and clients. Visit the studio page and website to see more.
