Before you say it

Before you say it, Dmitry was clear to point out this is not a copy of Derek Nobbs art,  but inspired by his artwork. This tattoo is based on Russian history.

Poppies are poison

Flower tattoos can be hard to talk about at length — they’re pretty, everyone gets it. The skulls in these poppy buds make for a nice, unexpected addition to this tattoo.

I have a (pipe) dream

March 30th, 2012 by Kevin -


Last night I bought seven tickets for the Mega Millions lottery. Hopefully when those five magical numbers are drawn tomorrow night, I’ll be the lucky winner of $540 million dollars. I spent a good fifteen minutes thinking about what I would do with all of my money, and I couldn’t decide between a tattoo world tour or the most ridiculous tattoo convention ever.

What’s the point of this? While I still haven’t decided what my earnings will be spent on, I can promise that Den Yakovlev will be invited.

26 Hours

It’s been a hot minute since we posted anything from Oleg Turyanskiy – and I think the piece below is a great way to break the fast. According to Oleg’s post, this is a healed photo after 26 hours worth of work. Looks like time (and money) well spent to me!

Fox Day: Cunning like a…

August 11th, 2011 by Kevin -


I just went to the Tattoo Angel webpage to look for something interesting about Pavel, but the website is in all Russian. Instead of trying to find a poor translation website, I’m just going to call this the start of ‘Fox Day’ and hope you enjoy.

Match Makers

July 15th, 2011 by Kevin -


Sometimes I feel like I could be a match maker via what tattoos people have. For example, I would introduce this gentleman to the female featured in Julene’s post ‘Is this the Worlds Best Tattoo?

Note: Both of these people happen to live on the same continent. Coincidence or destiny?

Oleg’s Fairytale Creatures

May 10th, 2011 by Kevin -


If you’re a fan of the work of Oleg Turyanskiy, you need to check out the new Fairytale Creatures Sketchbook he has coming out. The book features eighty-eighty different creatures, with line work, on fifty full color pages. All of the creatures were drawn specifically for this book in the past six months.

Oleg will have copies for sale this weekend at the Liverpool Tattoo Convention. They’ll also be available in his online store in the beginning of June.
