Stay… Bali?

Apparently the wearer of this tattoo wants this wolf to stay in Bali. That must be a bad ass wolf.

Black Anchor Collective at MusInk

April 6th, 2014 by Kevin -

       

I learned two things from this video.

  1. I need to go to MusInk.
  2. Nikko Hurtado must be exhausted by the end of the convention. I was exhausted just watching everyone talk to him, take pictures with him, and whatnot.

Shout out to Black Anchor Collective for making this video. It was super simple, but I really enjoyed it.

Welcome to Black Anvil Tattoo

I’ve always heard a lot of great things about Black Anvil Tattoo, but I’ve never been there. This video helps out with that, and shares some information about the artists and the shop.

If you’re anywhere near Fort Wayne, Indiana – this should be on your tattooed bucket list. If you’re not, buy a shirt and support a great shop.

Cattoo Confession

I have a confession… I’m not much of a cat kinda guy, but these cat tattoos are starting to grow on me. First it was the occasional one here or there, then it was Caturday, and now I just plain like them.

I was going to title this ‘Ugly but Honest’ but I know people would get the wrong idea.

Bio-Mental

Everyone knows Ty McEwen does some of the raddest biomech around, but he’s been doing some gnarly ornamental work two. The two styles combined compliment each other well, and I like to call it ‘BIO-MENTAL.’

A Painterly Approach

April 3rd, 2014 by Kevin -

       

It’s always cool when a tattoo artist has a different approach. That’s the story with Shay Bredimus. Here’s what she had to say:

I have an MFA in Painting and Gallery Representation, with Koplin Del Rio in Culver City, California. My approach to tattooing is more painterly than traditional.
