Love it, but it’s not for me

I post a lot of work that I wouldn’t get tattooed on me, but I appreciate it. This is a tattoo I definitely appreciate, but I wouldn’t get tattooed on me. I know a number of people won’t understand that, and that’s ok. It’s not something you have to understand. I would ask you to keep that in mind when you’re looking at the site though.

The latest Under the Skin features Isaiah Negrete of Shamrock Social Club.

I love that Sullen Clothing continues to showcase top artists.

Most of you probably know of Chuck Greenberg, A.K.A. Chuck DeeZee. Over the past several years, Chuck has gotten an insane amount of work all over the country by artists all over the world. The list of artists that have tattooed Chuck is mind boggling. With all of the time getting tattooed, traveling to get tattoo, talking to artists, and generally being around tattooed people – Chuck has picked up a thing or two.

I’m excited to say this is the first of a regular series of columns that Chuck is going to write for Tattoo Snob. Chuck is going to tackle subjects that a simple Google search won’t find. Below is the first of many article. If you have a subject that you’re interested in hearing Chuck’s thoughts on, don’t hesitate to leave a comment below.

Snail Whale

I’ll bet a coffee this tattoo gets reposted with ADORABLE written in front of it.

The tattoo community is one of the few places that think cute animals being impaled is totally adorable.

Something’s fishy

I’m not much of a fishing kinda guy, but I really enjoy the fishing tattoos. There’s something about the fish coming out of the water that’s thrilling, and capturing that in a tattoo is my favorite part about these pieces.

Maybe it’s Maybelline

Maybe she was born with it… maybe it’s Maybelline… but I’m pretty sure it’s not.

For the record, I hate the fact that I know that slogan.

Etch-A-Tattoo

I was just looking at this piece, when it suddenly dawned on me… it’s looks just like an Etch A Sketch!

I’m sure Etch A Sketch tattoos have been done, but I would love to see this style with an Etch A Sketch frame around the outside of the piece. Maybe for a collab piece? Could you imagine this with a realistic Etch A Sketch frame?
