The Newest Trend in Tattooing: Pudding!

April 14th, 2014 by Kevin -


A new trend emerged this weekend at the Hell City Tattoo Fest. Pudding. That’s right, pudding. Cups of pudding were being devoured throughout the convention thanks to Russ Abbott and the Ink and Dagger Tattoo crew. Now, I don’t think this isn’t a trend that is going to come and go. The Pudd_Ink Instagram shows how serious tattoo artists and collectors are about their pudding.

Thanks to Clint Lee, we have exclusive video of all the top tattoo artists partaking in this newest trend. There was so much video, we actually made two songs. The first video is shorter, and debuts a custom song by Taylor Cort. The second video is significantly longer and features every cup of pudding eaten at Hell City this weekend.

Now, go get yourself a cup of pudding and enjoy!

The Hell City Tattoo Fest Gallery

The first of two Hell City Tattoo Festivals went down this past weekend. The first was held in Columbus, Ohio with the second being held in Phoenix, Arizona.

In the past, I’ve made videos of the convention but this time I just took a few pictures. All of the pictures are also on the Tattoo Snob Facebook page, and can be seen here for your tagging pleasure.

I’m sure this will be the first set of many pictures, and videos to be released. Be prepared, and if you haven’t done so – book your trip to Phoenix now. It never disappoints.

Mandala Mother of Pearl

This piece is a little unusual, as it looks like a tattoo has been tattooed over the top of but that’s not the case. These tattooed ‘over’ pieces are becoming more and more popular, it’s interesting to see clients asking artists to mimic tattooed over vintage pieces.

Now, I could be totally wrong and this could be an original 100% piece.

Alphonse Mucha’s Zodiac

Most of you have probably seen Alphonse Mucha’s Zodiac, but didn’t know what it actually was. Honestly I didn’t either.

I bet Alphonse Mucha never thought people would be tattooing his art on their bodies a hundred years later…

Darth ‘Cutie’ Maul

For some reason this cute little Darth Maul reminds me of Hell City. Maybe it’s because of the loose devil and Darth Maul resemblance… or maybe because it reminds me of the Hellion Hell City logo, or maybe because I’m really excited Hell City is two days away?
