From Sketch to Skin

June 23rd, 2014 by Kevin -


Sketch to skin might lead you to believe there will be a sketch of this tattoo, but it’s actually not the case. This tattoo was sketched out by Joshua Bowers and placed on a flash sheet. Joshua recently just tattooed the piece, thus the title.

If you’re digging this cute little storm cloud, head over to Andy Robinson’s Instagram. He has a ton of tattoos similar to this, and they’re all super rad.

Heart Locked Pendant

We see a lot of these in traditional tattooing, but when was the last time you actually saw a pendant/necklace like this? When are we going to start seeing tattoos of jewelry that people actually wear?

Two Shots, One Sitting

As you can see, the tattoo is big. It’s so big that two pictures needed to be taken to show the entire thing. It’s insane this tattoo was done in one day at a convention, but it’s true. This tattoo of a Philippine eagle attacking a monkey was done at the Philadelphia tattoo convention in January and won Best of Show, as well as Tattoo of the Day.

Orange is the New Black

The color orange has seemed to gain popularity over the past couple of years, but I don’t know if anyone loves the color orange as much as Adam Guy Hays. His Instagram account is covered in orange, and I’m willing to bet his house is too.

The Rose

I love rose tattoos, but I especially love when the stem and leaves are included. This might be a perfect rose tattoo.
