A Full Plate of Questions

July 7th, 2014 by Kevin -

       

I always have a slew of questions when a tattoo like this is submitted. How much time did it take, how many sessions were completed, is there a back story behind all of it, or was it put together piece by piece?

Good Advice for a Monday Morning

Monday mornings are bad enough, but a Monday morning after a holiday weekend seems about ten times worse, no?

The Second Session with Myke Chambers

This five minute time lapse recaps a full day of Myke Chambers tattooing a full back piece. I don’t know how long the session was, but they made a lot of progress. Now I’m not a tattoo artist, but I always appreciate a good time lapse video to see exactly how an artist goes about a piece.

The Perfect Submission

Pictures Shot on a real camera? Check.
High Resolution Pictures? Check.
Multiple Angles? Check.

This is the trifecta of perfection.

Love the perspective of this rose. It’s a breath of fresh air from your typical rose tattoo.

Northern Ink Xposure Recap

July 2nd, 2014 by Kevin -

       

The Northern Ink Xposure recently took place at Toronto, and like all cool things – I missed it. Like all of the Canadian shows, I’ve heard good things about the show and the list of attending artists is the best of the best. One of these days I’ll get up north for one of these shows…

Thankfully Sullen Clothing was there to document the festivities for those of us who missed it.

Karrie Arthurs has been doing some really top notch work lately. Personally, I like her new stuff just as much as her old stuff.

Please tell me you’re doing pieces like this Karrie!?!
