Tattoo Artists Help Fight Skin Cancer in Brazil

August 29th, 2014 by Kevin -

       

Tattoo artists in Brazil are being trained by doctors to look for signs of skin cancer, thanks to Sol de Janeiro. Sol de Janeiro is a sunscreen company, and had the brilliant idea of having artists attending training courses to look for early signs of skin cancer.

This is simply brilliant. With skin cancer being the most common type of cancer in the world, this could help people quickly identify the early signs.

Rest in Peace Jason Reeder

The tattoo world lost another amazing person today. Jason Reeder was an amazing artist, and more importantly – one hell of a guy. I’ve been a fan of his work for ages, and I consider myself lucky that I was able to cross paths with him. I’m going to miss looking at his posts about his comic books, 90′s movies and music, and his art.

Rest in Peace Jason.

I’m a little burned out on all of the super hero movies, but I will always enjoy the original Batman episodes. I would love to see a full sleeve of this… Imagine how much fun that would be!

This was submitted as a black metal chest piece from Otis in Norway. I know Norway loves black metal, but this is something else.

A Skull Fixes All

I always appreciate a good cover up piece. Although I will say, a reaper tattoo covering that old reaper would have been bad as hell.
