I’ve seen plenty of variations of the Our Lady of Guadalupe, but I think this is the first shark that I’ve seen.

Brotherhood of Mutants

It’s a good day when a submission mentions the reference for a tattoo. With this X-Men piece below, the inspiration was this Gambit painting by Felipe Massafera. Jadrian “JJ” Claudio put his own spin on it, and the results are below.

I think JJ did hell of a job paying tribute to the original piece, but also putting his own spin on it.

Doomsday Zebra

What happens to the animals when doomsday comes? I’m sure if I actually researched this, I would be able to find a response… but I would much rather have someone stumble across this from a Google search and leave their two cents.

A couple weeks ago Jeff Gogue was in France, and during that time he was interviewed by Tatouage & Partage.

Unfortunately there’s not subtitles for the entire video, but Jeff provides plenty of insight and strategy into his tattooing and art.

Bringing Tattoos to Life

April 15th, 2014 by Kevin -

       

So Shawn Patton had a photographer from the Canary Islands, that took it upon themselves to bring one of Shawn’s tattoos to life. Shawn adds in that he’s never met or spoke to the photographer or the model. Unfortunately Shawn didn’t include the name of the photographer or model, but hopefully they do more tattoos in the future.
