Andrew McMahon is a great musician and songwriter who has been doing amazing things for a very long time. Currently known for his music group Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness and the hit single Cecilia and the Satellite, Andrew has had much success with this and is also known for his past bands as well, such as Jack's Mannequin and Something Corporate. Andrew recently visited me to get a very meaningful tattoo for him, one to symbolize his relationship between him and his daughter, Cecilia. Needless to say, super honored to be asked to make this tattoo with him and that he visited me in Tallahassee at my tattoo studio on his day off, Monument Tattoos. Thanks Andrew.
Elle King is a beautiful and very talented woman. I have had the pleasure of making a very meaningful tattoo for her as well as some great time spent together having a little fun. Elle and her bass player Paul visited me at my studio in Tallahassee, Monument Tattoos, on her day off from tour. They visited for this tattoo on her chest to show her love for her new husband,
I was very honored to make this for her.
We also went out for a few nights on the town, partied hard and she even sang karaoke with my wife, Heidi Mae, of her song X's and O's. Pretty awesome!
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.
