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.

Finally coming up for air after a very long convention, I’d like to thank everyone so much who got tattooed, bought a machine, or bought a t-shirt or two. We had a fantastic time! I put another session in on this one to end the weekend, one more oughta finish it. Hopefully sooner than another 2 years. #Tattoooftheday #tattoosnob #tattooistartmagazine #tattooedbodyart #inkedmag #thebesttattooartists #ink #realtraditional #neotrad #neotraditional #art #the_inkmasters #toptattooartist #joshuabowersmachines
