Bubble girly style

Just in time for back to school, Kristel Oreto has released her sketch and doodles book.

This book doesn’t actually have anything to do with school, but I can’t think of a better way to pass the time in those boring classes.

Powder Puff Pinups

Alissa Brunelli and Sunshine Pace shot some new pictures representing their newest venture, Powder Puff Pinups.

From what I understand, Powder Puff Pinup is a consultant company that will assist any female (or male I suppose) in creating the ultimate pinup photo shoot. The photography, wardrobe, environment, poses, hair and make up, and even facial expressions are all covered between Alissa and Sunshine. The website has additional details, and a sample of their work is below, featuring the lovely Radeo.

This could be a fun gift just in time for the holiday season. I know plenty of guys that would be excited to see their special someone in pinup pictures, especially if they can keep the pictures to themselves.

Board to Lose the book

August 28th, 2010 by Kevin -

       

During the Salt Lake City Tattoo Convention, one of the exhibits that gained a lot of attention was the Board to Lose gallery. Featuring one hundred skateboards painted by different artists, the gallery made a small tour around different events in the country. Since then, all one hundred of the boards have been documented and a book has been published. For more information on the book, and to purchase a copy for yourself, click here.

To see a majority of the featured decks, check out the Board to Lose Myspace page.

Matters of the heart

I’ve seen plenty of people sporting ‘heartbreaker’ tattoos, but this is the first ‘heart broken’ one I’ve come across. Typically people don’t brag about being heart broken, but I really like the contrast between these two pieces.

Star Wars Day #2: Disturbance in Force Art Sale

July 1st, 2010 by Kevin -

       

In the beginning of the month, Hope Gallery held a show paying tribute to Star Wars called ‘Disturbance in the Force.’ Since then, the gallery has been open to the public with a number of the original art pieces being sold online.

A number of prints and original paintings are still available, such as my personal favorite, the “Impirial Mariachi” by the Beast Brothers.

Make a move if you’re interested in one of these, as they’ll only be available till Monday, July 5th.

Idle Hands by Shawn Barber

How do I go about getting the 5″x15″ prints that go with these boards without actually buying one? Don’t get me wrong, I dig the skateboards but I really just want the prints.

If you’re interested in picking up these decks, they’re not hard to find. I’ll even provide a good home for the prints to anyone who doesn’t want them…

Tattoo skincare with Out To Sea

June 10th, 2010 by Julene Huffman -

       

There’s a plethora of tattoo-related creams, lotions, and varying other products on the market right now. But really, whose products should you be using and why?

Late last year, Kevin turned me on to a new line of tattoo aftercare products made by Out to Sea. This San Francisco-based vegan, junky filler-free skincare line is starting to make waves–as well it should. I spoke with Jenni a bit about what sets OTS apart from other tattoo aftercare skin products on the market… and their adult oriented  products as well.
