by Travie Grizzle on November 2, 2013

Every artist has their own gift and talent, within their artistic ability.  Finding an artist that loves or thrives when tattooing a specific subject, is key if you want to have a great tattoo on your body for the rest of your life.  Andrés Acosta seems to be unbelievably gifted when it comes to roses, [...]

Beautiful Hand

by Travie Grizzle on October 16, 2013

Terry does some beautiful tattoos.  The way by which he sculpts images to carefully transition from one color to another is something that can only be learned through years of practicing and lots of trial and error.  Terry does amazing black and grey pieces as well, but when it comes to color tattoos, it’s hard [...]

Flowery Skull

by Travie Grizzle on September 8, 2013

I’m such a huge fan of how contrast defines art.  Whether its contrasting colors, styles or subject matter.  In this case, this tattoo has all three of those criteria.  Obviously the flowers and the skull are the biggest two contrasting items, in all of the categories I mentioned.  The skull is black and grey, rugged, [...]

Surreal Sunshine

by Erin Peck on August 15, 2013

This tattoo’s imagery is so striking!  The main element is a swishing snake-like hand that seems to be made of a streak of paint.  The hand is surrounded by a garden of flowers and a big beautiful orange ball that I can only imagine is the sun.  Above everything stands the moon. Even the hairy [...]

Natural Wonder

by Erin Peck on July 25, 2013

This tattoo is spectacular.  It’s a bunch of things you would see in nature, flowers, bugs, leaves, and all together they make a skull.  Not only is the concept of this tattoo amazing but the actual overlaying and line work in this tattoo are mind blowing as well.  Somehow despite the dark element of this [...]

Blossoming Cherry Tree

by Erin Peck on June 15, 2013

The most impressive aspect of this tattoo is not the tattoo itself, but the process in which this tattoo was made.  I’ve never seen anything like this done before!  The first part of the process for this tattoo is to show a barren tree.  The second is the the appearance of cherry blossoms on the [...]

Contrasting

by Travie Grizzle on June 9, 2013

Give me credit, I waited this long before I posted the work of one of my favorite artists of all time.  A.D. Pancho! I’m aware that you all have the link to his Facebook page saved in your “Favorites”, but in case someone from another planet dropped by to read this, I’ve decided to include [...]

Birds of a Feather

by Erin Peck on May 25, 2013

This tattoo is simply beautiful.  It shows a flock of robins as they land and flutter around a flower.  The colors in this tattoo are SO vibrant and the detail of each bird really brings this tattoo to life.  On top of the amazing foreground there are silhouettes of even more birds in the background. [...]

Old School Meets Cubism

by Erin Peck on May 23, 2013

Wow. What can I say about this amazing tattoo by Jonas Nyberg with Lucky Bum Tattoo? This tattoo successfully blends the best of both worlds, classic tattooing style and abstract cubism.  The warm color scheme pops off of the person’s skin which is very eye catching.  This tattoo starts out in a very traditional way [...]
