Haha!! Don’t know why I looked scared, maybe it’s from captain taking my photo while hanging in the hammock in the shack’s rafters. I just stained the 3 hanging tiki babies and will paint tomorrow morning. This beachcomber is pooped! See you guys Sunday at Forbidden Island. @tikichippy this selfie is for you buddy! Haha! #workshop #woodshop #tikidecor #beachcomber #shack #ventura #california

Mr. Prickers was angry as always and the little monkey could hear his snarled breaths and groans echoing as he approached the meeting. The cracklings fire camouflaged the heavy footsteps still behind the snake and the little monkey. Mr. Prickers began shouting at the little monkey before he even set foot in the meeting room and Prickers was going to be even more upset when he saw the snake was with him. #monkey #littlemonkey #adventure #safari #explore #explorer #drawing #illustration #childrensbook #snake #muscles #tattoos #toucan #jungle #bedtimestories #tiki #tikitony

The little monkey was late to the village leaders meeting where he knew Mr. Prickers was going to be upset with anything and everything. To top it off, he forgot his matches and it was going to be a dark dark cave. Ffffrrrrrrroarrrrr!!! And the flame was lit!!!!! The little monkey was hardly surprised that the snake lit his fire, as the snake had been such a good partner in the jungle, and always supplying an answer. They had a flame just in time as they heard the thud of heavy footsteps quickly approaching behind them in the jungle. The little monkey and snake escaped to the torch lit cave together. #monkey #littlemonkey #adventure #safari #explore #explorer #drawing #illustration #childrensbook #snake #muscles #tattoos #toucan #jungle #bedtimestories #tiki #tikitony

Wow, 2 pineapple tattoos on the same day half way around the world from each other! One here in US and the other in Europe. The Aloha tattoo is in South America. The Dia De Los Muertos was from a year ago or so, here in So Cal. Thanks my little beachcombers for finding something special in what I love to do! #tattoo #pineapple #pineappletattoo #diadelosmuertos #aloha #puffer #puffertattoo #tikitony
