Sleepy Birds

by Travie Grizzle on August 31, 2013

Elegance, grace, simplicity.  Jilly Bonny portrays those three words fantastically with this beautiful, colorful piece.  Her use of colors and shading bring these birds to life and make them seem very real as they rest quietly on the tree branch.  The positioning of this tattoo is peculiar but Jill did a great job skewing the [...]

Erin Chance

by Erin Peck on August 26, 2013

New Zealand based tattooer and artist Erin Chance specializes in figurative tattoos.  You can check out more of Erin’s tattoos here: http://www.erinchancetattoo.com/.  Ms. Chance also does awesome ladies and cats in top hats. Now, this tattoo is huge!   I think what makes this tattoo work is the unscrupulous attention to detail and the vibrant colors. [...]

Swans in Motion

by Travie Grizzle on August 24, 2013

This beautiful scene was created in ink by Jari Kajaste.  It is something that I’ve never seen represented this well in a tattoo.  The details in this piece are remarkable and quite frankly, uncanny.  The ability to capture the movement of the swans by showing the ripples in the water and the shadow cast on [...]

Baby Tiger

by Travie Grizzle on August 16, 2013

Superstar artist Moni Marino rocked this stunning baby tiger on the inner arm of her client, just above the equally detailed (you guessed it) tiger lily!  Can anyone pickup on the theme going on here? Talk about a well executed tattoo and a lasting work of art.  The look of innocence and wonder is completely [...]

Heliosphere

by Erin Peck on August 12, 2013

The heliosphere is a region of space dominated by the Sun, a sort of bubble of charged particles in the space surrounding the Solar System.  In this tattoo we see not only the planets orbiting the sun, but also the paths that the planets take around the sun.  I think what’s really cool about this [...]

A Bright Beauty

by Travie Grizzle on August 7, 2013

This tattoo brings me such a warm feeling.  Samuel Potucek tattooed this very bold and incredibly oddly positioned tattoo.  I can’t imagine the uncomfortable feeling of having a tattoo done right on your ankle, but at least for this person it was well worth whatever pain they endured because they walked away with a stunning [...]

Down the Rabbit Hole

by Travie Grizzle on August 2, 2013

Daniel Gensch brings the business with these powerful matching hand pieces.  Tattooed using very a very traditional style, bold lines and powerful but subtle colors, Daniel created two beautiful animal tattoos that match each other beautifully and play off of each other very well.  Both hand pieces are set of phenomenally by the yellow background [...]

Red CARDINALS

by Erin Peck on July 27, 2013

I’ve been posting a couple tattoos where I’m not sure who the artist is lately.  But, this  is mostly due to the fact that these tattoos are just too remarkable to not share.  This tattoo is yet another example of  why I’ll make an exception and post a unknown tattoo.  It’s simply A-MAZ-ING!

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 [...]

Beauty From the Ground up

by Travie Grizzle on July 21, 2013

Very few artists can execute a primarily outline-free tattoo this flawlessly and on such a large scale.  Adam Kremer did so in what looks like a nearly effortless fashion with this beautiful backpiece.  My favorite part of this tattoo happens to be the lack of outline throughout.  Because of this, nothing in the entire tattoo [...]
