Tattoo Designs

I wanted to share some tattoo designs I’ve done over the years! Friends always ask me to help them create custom art or fix tattoos.

This one was for a girlfriend who got a bad artist and had little to no detail.. she wasn’t happy with it so I added the face, headdress, the 6 arms, crossed legs, and magic carpet. (I wish I had the before picture!)

This pair of tattoos was created for my friend Skip who asked me to draw him his favorite food: Bread and Cheese.

This phoenix was for my old boss Joe. He wanted a custom design for his forearm so I created this!

My friend Lorenzo is an actor and movie junkie, so he told me he wanted a film reel….

I’m working on another tattoo this week for a guy from Pittsburgh. He had a pretty detailed idea of this design. He wanted a Steel Beam to represent his hometown, and a California bear drawn walking on top of it. I still have to do the Bear but I got the steel beam down so far…..

The same client wanted a more personal design for another tattoo. The word ‘Life’  in his mother’s handwriting represents loving life… and a tombstone engraved with an infinity sign, reminding him how short life really is.

I enjoy creating people’s ideas and make them happy by bringing it to life!  🙂

New Year, New Pau!

NEW YEAR

The year 2015 had lessons to learn – and 2016 is about getting back on track.

NEW YEAR

I’m looking forward to the future with open eyes and an open heart . I’ve moved into a new home, with new resolutions, ready to take on anything! Every day is another opportunity to push yourself – to become a better you.

The past month  I’ve had some time to make more sketches… and started a book club with 3 girlfriends. All from the Valley, we love to read and started the club off with Brooklyn by Colm Toibin.  I just finished I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou and thought it’d be cool to draw just her eyes because she was a woman with so much soul..

NEW YEAR

I drew Steve Harvey after his hilarious fail on National television. His face is too good not to draw!

NEW YEAR

2016 Reminders:

  • Pay it forward.
  • You get what you give.
  • Work on your craft everyday.
  • Keep organized and throw out the junk.
  • Stay humble.
  • Try new things.
  • Stay true to yourself.
  • Keep a strong relationship with God.
  • Do more, say less.
  • Forgive but don’t forget.
  • Take care of the temple you call your body!

 


 

Also, it’s my birthday month! I’m embracing 29 with a kick-ass attitude.

The year of PAU.

XO.

Pet Portrait: Ryan O’Neal

Pet portraits

I did a special portrait of Ryan O’Neal’s best friends Mozart and Raven! To make it more personal for him,  I added his green patio cushion and view of the ocean in Malibu. He loved it! I’m so happy to bring joy to someone’s life through my art. Nothing beats it!

Enjoy, Ryan!

Stuff & Stuff Podcast

geek

My friend Jonathan Latt wrote his first book The Geek, and asked me to paint the cover for it! He directed me to make a hand-drawn map of the World, with Dungeons/Dragons dice thrown across it, and the protagonist’s favorite killing knife set in a bird’s eye view.

He had me as a guest on his new podcast called Stuff & Stuff – an hour conversation with a person of his choice to talk about “stuff”.
