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.
UPDATE: this blog isn't updated as much as it should be anymore because I spend most of my time working on my work at KScopeArt.com. You can follow me on Facebook, but I hope you'll follow me here too!
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.
Just hit the subscribe button and fill your newsfeed with something other than photos of what your friends ate for lunch, incoherent song lyrics, and George Takei. Prepare for all sorts of body painting goodness, my traveling adventures, and art art art!
I’m taking more time to focus on my career (which mostly spending all my free time drawing and emailing clients) so this blog has fallen a ton. For those of you (and there are thousands) who have been following me since summer, you’ll know the content went from 6 posts of original content a day to one of something I found online somewhere. (#slacker)
My queue is almost empty, but I won’t let critink die.
That said: I need help! If you have a background in art, tattooing, or anything relevant and would like to blog for critink, here’s the drill:
Send me a mini-resume in my ask telling me any formal art or tattoo training you have, something cool about yourself, and what you think the balance of content/craft should be in tattoos. I want to keep critink consistent, so I’m looking for someone who will do it justice!
Later on, I’m going to send my favorites a link to an image. You’ll critique it on your blog tomorrow!
Everyone gets to vote for their favorite critique! Even if you have zero understanding of art but want to help keep this blog going, you get to be part of the process :)
Thanks so much! I dearly love all of my followers and I hope you all know that I haven’t forgotten about critink. It just hasn’t been able to be a priority of mine as I get my life together. We all have those moment, right?
