Bee is for Bowers

This blog was created to showcase the work of Joshua and Alyssa Bowers. We will be posting information and photos about our clothing company, Acanthus Apparel, Alyssa's boutique, Vitae Design Collective, and photos of Joshua's artwork, tattoos and tattoo machines. We might even throw in a few chihuahua photos every now and then.

If you are interested in purchasing any of the items you see on the blog then visit www.acanthusapparel.etsy.com and www.joshuabowers.com.
Made some progress today on some spinner bodies. A couple of these are spoken for, 3 will be given out as tattoo of the day prizes at the @eviantattooshow and the rest I will be taking with me to France and will be available for purchase. #joshuabowersmachines
