Embedded in Roses

I don’t normally post two pieces from the same artist within a week, but I absolutely love the roses on this hot air balloon.

I would love to see this healed. I think it’ll look even better.

I don’t make a habit of embedding Facebook posts, but this is too cool not to share.

I like the black and grey approach to this piece. Usually we see the go to animal carcasss as the go to for the head wear. It’s nice to see something different.

A brief look inside Seven Doors Tattoo Studio

August 1st, 2014 by Kevin -


Back in June, Seven Doors Tattoo officially opened their doors. Now that the shop has been opened for a few months, they made the promo video below. It’s a long enough video to get the overall fun vibe of the shop, but not long enough to get bored. At just over a minute long, you can even watch it on your phone.

Would you get a tattoo of nothing?

First off, can anyone confirm this video is factual? If it is true, what do you think? Do you think there are really people who want to experience getting a tattoo but don’t actually want to get a tattoo?

The Mid Torso Tattoo Trend

July 31st, 2014 by Kevin -


So yesterday I briefly posted this tattoo and talked about the ‘Under the Boob’ trend, and if it was going to be the new ‘tramp stamp’ trend. I understand ‘tramp stamp’ isn’t a attractive term, but I honestly didn’t mean any disrespect to the tattoo placement or the wearer. And yes, I’ve used ‘tramp stamp’ when discussing guys tattoo placements as well.

On that note, can we talk about the ‘mid torso’ tattoo trend? If you’ve had your torso tattooed, you know this isn’t a pleasant journey. It’s pretty impressive so many of these tattoos are being done, especially one people that don’t have any other tattoos.

An old school panther can’t get much better, but flames makes everything better no?
