Latest tattoo lowdown.....

Recommended Posts

@Graeme - yours is one of those tattoos that just grabs the viewer right away, and then all those details just keep coming out the more you look at it. I bet you're real excited to finish it!

And @ItsNewport - fucking phenomenal!! That's a real powerful tattoo.

That last page was phenomenal, all you guys are killing it! Just getting back up the hill from Lifetime, pictures to come soon. I got some space filled with wings and eyeballs from Mr Von Bartholomaus and the lady got a rose from Matt. Fun times!

Anyone who follows me on Instagram has seen this, but here's a little teaser shot of my arm from Grez. I said from the beginning that I wasn't going to post progress shots much because I love that feeling of just seeing the whole completed piece, and I'm amazed I mostly stuck to that. Haha. Now that next month is likely the last sitting, I can see end in sight and can't wait to share it.

Finally I have something new to report. Let's see if I remember how to post a pic. I got this little clipper while on a trip to Amsterdam (which was rad, as one might imagine). The shop, Tattoo Peter (named for its founder) is the oldest shop in Amsterdam established in 1955 and in its current location since 1977. Cool little shop with walls lined with amazing old flash. My artist, Bill Loika, is a super cool laid back dude from the US now living in Amsterdam. I had a goal to get tattooed by someone older than I am which is becoming increasingly difficult ;) Mission accomplished ! Bill is still in the game at 66. Awesome! The pic is of the fresh tattoo. Healing this sucker has been a bitch for some reason. I'm kinda bummed that the detail of the Dutch flag has yet to reveal itself. Fingers crossed. The design is from Tattoo Peter flash from the 60's. Also a pic of Bill with old Tattoo Peter flash in the background. Sideways pics dammit ! Apologies...[ATTACH=CONFIG]12615[/ATTACH]

more work done tonight. next appt is the end of June. The frog is getting redone in this go 'round-he's kinda old (15 years or so I think) so he would look out of place I thought.

I like the frog. I wouldn't touch it. Palette-wise, he fits in with the sleeve (not sure if that was done by the original artist or the new one). If the sleeve is by the new artist then I think he'll look just right as he is.

I'm not getting rid of him-I love him. Just new color to freshen him up is all.

I got this done by Jonas Nyberg at the Helsinki ink convention at the end of march and finally got my gf to get a decent photo of it so here it is!

I've been back to look at this 20 times now I think. What kind of style would this be called?

I would say it was traditional, but just a certain distinct style of traditional that this artist has. To me it has a certain folk-art quality to it.

All done. :o

We stuck with flowers for fillers in the end, even though we did talk about a frog. He took some shots from other angles, but didn't put them up. Maybe he will later. I'm a little sad about it being finished, so I can't imagine how you backpiece people felt when it was over!

...but I might get to find out, because we may have chatted about it a bit today. We'll seeeeeeeeee. :cool:

I get a day to bang around Powell's Books tomorrow and cap off the night with Mad Max, and then I get to be tattooed by @cltattooing the day after that! Definitely a great mini-vacation.
