Line Work Galore!

I’m a firm believer the worst part of a tattoo is the line work. With that being said, I don’t know if I could have sat through this tattoo.

The Nipple Artist

We’ve talked about Little Vinnie’s before, but today we’re talking about it for a completely different reason. Nipples. Yes, nipples. The New York Times recently posted this video, in an article called A Tattoo That Completes a New BreastThe video and the article discuss Vinnie Myers tattooing, specifically his nipple areola tattoos.

This is a pretty powerful video and article, I would encourage you to add both of these to your must watch/read.

Paint it Red

Greg Dyer (A.K.A. the mastermind of the Dirty Magic Book) has been posting a ton of red and black paintings and flash on his Instagram for a while now. I’m stoked to see in the tattoo form as well. Hopefully we see more like this in the future.

The Multifaceted Work of NICK WHYBROW

I stumbled across Nick Whybrow’s Twitter account, and saw the link to NickWhybrow.com. When I got to the site, I saw work that I wasn’t familiar with. Easy enough, I have the wrong Nick Whybrow, right? Wrong, the Twitter account clearly states ‘I tattoo and am currently working at Jayne Doe.’

We all know plenty of tattoo artists are active in other art forms outside of tattooing, but it’s typically painting and drawing. The fact that it’s computer graphics and stop motion make it even cooler.
