Mom deserves a beautiful rose. The classic tattoo of a rose represents love. With this tattoo, I wanted to set this rose apart from the many rose tattoo. Subtle shades of black and gray bring life to this first tattoo.
Patriotic tattoos are as old as America. What images portray patriotism to you? This tattoo was a lot of fun, but I guess most of my tattoos have an element of fun built in for me, I really enjoy what I do. Time to time I am asked to do a patriotic tattoo with a 911 theme, this was no exception. The existing eagle and flag was itching to be enhanced. The first tattoo I add was the close up of Lady Liberty, which later we would have her looking out over New York harbour. Looking through some art of the harbour and artwork depicting the USS New York we were hit by inspiration.
Please Remember Those Who Have Sacrificed For Us To Be Free!
Music is a major influence on the tattoos people get, from their favorite band’s logo or album art to the very words that inspire. The headphones, a trademark of the DJ, show another side of the music business. DJ have their own unique sounds and the own unique artworks.
With a complete sleave tattoo in mind, these Angels are being placed on different parts of the arm and slowly being incorporated together.
The Polynesian style of tattooing done with modern equipment. The organic design is drawn on the tattoo collector. The plan is to have this design grow onto the chest and back.
Tattoo’s ancient roots go way back to Polynesia and Hawaii. Tiki have similar roots in history and now the two meet. This was a fun tattoo to do for a big Tiki fan and collector. I am looking forward to adding to his collection.
Tattoo artists are often asked to tattoo a Memorial tattoo. Many select names and dates to be remembered, I like to suggest to create a tattoo that reminds you of that person. So that is what we set out to do when we created this one. I say we because the owner of the tattoo needs to be involved. This black and gray tattoo incorporates his fathers passion in life, God, The Marines, Minnesota Viking and Nascar! God Bless our US Marines!
From Disturbed, the cover of their latest album. All the black work done showing off fine details in this tattoo. All those chain links took some concentration. Next step is to engulf the tattoo in flames.
