Muscle Nightmare

Working closely with director Joe Bauer, I designed, created, and applied all of the prosthetic prison and gang tattoos for "Ambush".

For the character named 'Muscle Nightmare', every tattoo was created as a transfer appliance, cutting the actor's time in the makeup chair down to 30 minutes.

The tattoo covering this character's head was achieved by creating a series of accurate stencils.

In addition to all of the tattoos, I handled all of the film's make up. Phil Carott created all of the hair pieces that Lance Henriksen wore, and I was assisted by Lilith Alexandrian and Mary Trahey applying on set.
