Keegan Moran Tattoo ArtistI was looking forward to writing about this tattoo artist from Arizona and besides the material I found about him in one of my old International Tattoo magazines, I did some hunting on the web- only to find out he died this past March at the young age of 31.  How sad, so young and so talented.  The interview I read about him stated he had lung related issues that interfered with his wood burning artwork. He would be forced to take months off from his pursuit of this art form.  It made me wonder if his death was related to the lung issue.

Not only was he talented as a tattoo artist, he had a flare for wood burning as well as other art forms. His subject choices leaned towards the dark side for subject choices – lots of classic evil guys and skulls. He was able to develop his woodburning into a finished project that took on the feel of a painting – a technique he had taught himself  over time.   Visit his myspace page (while it is still up) which seem to have the best collection of his various art forms.

Another example of creative and unique wood art – Joanne Phillips.
