There are hundreds of thousands of tattoo pictures online. Maybe millions. But with this rise in popularity, it's getting even harder than ever to tell the difference between a quality piece of art and a piece that will fade into a black smudge. Learn to tell the difference now so you don't have to learn the lesson the hard way.
Found Mike Moses through your blog. Just got this piece from him (one more session to go). It all started with Critink. I know you are kind of burned out on Tumblr, so I figured I’d give you a little positive feedback, and a well earned thanks.
I found Mike Moses through running this blog, and now I have a piece by him too. This makes me really, really happy to see. You don’t even know bro.
It’s just such a dynamic piece. The crow (raven?) is looking in the same directions as the little shattered looking bits. It’s smooth as hell with nice contrast, and the drippy bit down the center of your chest is hella nice in an asymetrical sort of way. Plus nice contrast between the soft feathers and sharp snowflake type lines.
Good example of how large amounts of black and asymmetry can be done right. But that’s Mike’s thing, right?
As doodled on a coworker today: Dalek, Cyberman, Star Whale, Peg Doll, and bonus exploding TARDIS eye.
This is what body painters do on their nights off. If you haven’t heard, this is also the reason I’m neglecting this blog: focusing on my job. I’m a full time artist and putting more energy into my work has been rewarding as hell.
Fun fact: did you guys know I’m a full time artist? I’ve been neglecting this blog because I’ve been focusing a lot more on my career as a body painter. Yes, these are all pictures from work!
I’m literally inviting you all to follow me on my personal Facebook as I make my big, exciting life shift. I want to get ahead in my industry, continue to travel for work, and make some really amazing art! I would love if you all would like to follow me there.
