Latest tattoo lowdown.....

Recommended Posts

Well, I feel like we finally jumped the shark from "casual fans of tattoos" to "oh god I'm spending all my money on tattoos". My wife and I flew from Austin to Los Angeles this past week to get tattooed by Freddy Negrete at Shamrock Social Club. He knocked out this St Michael in about 4 hours, all single-needle. He also did a portrait of my daughter on my wife. 

Freddy was very cool and the entire shop was awesome. As a side note, Mark Mahoney is probably the nicest tattoo artist I've ever met. He has me convinced to make a return trip out there to get tattooed by him too.

Got some fun ones over the last 6 months or so: 

Finished up my rib piece with Theo at Spider Murphy's:

Scored a walk in with Chris Wielk at Ocean Ave Tattoo:

And got this scropion from Alex Matus when she was guesting at Idle Hand back in September:

Took all the images from the respective artists' Instagram page. Have an appointment with Jay Watkins at Spider Murphy's tomorrow, so I'll post that one soon too

Finished up my tiger with Chris O'Donnell on Friday. We added chrysanthemums, rocks and fingerwaves. I'm over the moon with the way it looks (healed photos to come) and thrilled that I never have to have the back of my thigh tattooed again! Oh, and all while having a full on vertigo.

Damn, so many amazing tattoos here,

@havetsherre - that is a hell of a dragon, can't wait to see the finished piece.

My latest is an Eagle and Snek done last weekend by Joseph, currently doing a guest spot at Cuba Street Tattoo in Wellington (his usual shop is City Of Ink in Christchurch) @jj_doom on instagram.

Put some work into the 2nd layer last nite and ran over some old tattoo with new.

It was an awesome time. Trevor is an old pal from our teenage punk years. We teased him when he was the first of our friends to get some tattoo. And now he's tattooing us 2 decades later. It's really funny.

3 swallows blasted over the background of my 13 year old St. Francis tattoo. All draw on.  Used spearmint, lipstick red inks and some old National Yellow pigment for extra cool points. Cheers

Got this frog on Sunday from Jay Watkins at Spider Murphys. I won my work's fantasy football league this year so I figured putting the pot towards a relevant tattoo would be fun. Super stoked on how this one turned out, Jay's great and always fun to talk to:
