Skin Deep, by the pair

It’s not right to post a pair of tattoos, and not feature both. Now what makes them a pair, I don’t know other than the same artist did both pieces. But hey, sometimes we don’t know and I’m ok with that. This isn’t “Insert Tattoo Reality Show” Here. We don’t have to have a story behind every tattoo.

Fresh to death

I have a love hate relationship with fresh tattoo pictures. Obviously an artist wants to document the work that they did, but a healed picture would be much more ideal. Unfortunately that’s not always possible due to logistics, and let’s not even get into the part about clients not healing pieces correctly.

In the perfect world, every client would heal their tattoo well and come back to allow the artist to take healed pictures. I don’t think that will ever happen, but I can dream.

Damned if you do. Damned if you don’t.

Everyone has heard of the ‘Damned if you do, damned if you don’t’ quote before, but did you know Eleanor Roosevelt said it?

I titled this post ‘Damned if you do. Damned if you don’t’ because of the dilemma I’m in. If I post this photo, some will say I just posted it because of the… surroundings… of the picture. If I don’t post it, I’m not posting a quality tattoo that was submitted by a fan.

Well, hate away. Quality tattoo work will always be featured here, regardless of the surroundings.

Make Your Own Fate

Parry Chotipradit titled this sleeve ‘Make Your Own Fate.’ Why that is, I don’t know. There’s obviously a good chance this sleeve is based off of something I don’t know.

If you do know, feel free to share it below. I’d love to know.

In case you didn’t know, Seth Wood is the man. While everyone knows wolf tattoos are the hot trend, Seth kicks it up a notch and makes it a blood wolf.
