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.

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?

I don’t usually post the same tattoo on the Tattoo Snob Instagram and here, but this is too cool not to post twice.

The limited color palette tattoo

March 27th, 2014 by Kevin -


European and American tattoo styles don’t always follow the same path, but it’s inevitable they influence each other at some point. Sometimes the influence is subtle and other times it’s borderline theft.

These limited palette pieces seem to be popping up more and more in Europe, and I’m curious how long before we see them in the states.

I’m a Tattoo Artist

Earlier today, I mentioned Peng Yang has decided to stay in New York for the near future. He’ll be tattooing at Alchemy Tattoo Arts in Bellmore, New York.

I’m excited that Peng is in the states, and I can’t wait to see all of the new work he’s already started. Below is a video of Peng that was posted earlier this month.

Peng Yang lays roots in New York

Long time Tattoo Snob friend Scott Trerrotola recently sent us the good news that Peng Yang has decided to stay in the states. Peng (pronounced, “pong”) is here from Beijing, China. He will be staying in New York for a few years and decided to grow roots at Alchemy Tattoo Arts.

Keep your eye on Peng, I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more from him in the future.
