We do this thing on the Jalopy Journal(an online forum for hot rodders) featuring an occasional friday art show where Pinstripers and the like share their artwork. Some really cool stuff would be shown, and I think that would be a fun event for this forum. So how about a picture of your favorite painting(s)?

I'll start with this one, it's a liquid acrylic and coffee stained painting featuring Hans "King Whiskers" Langseth...Guinness World Record holder for longest beard.

Ok well, let's see. Hope this helps build the thread. Not really sure if there's any theme or anything here or if we are just posting work.

So here:

Our shop (Anonymous Tattoo) just had an opening for a show of paintings we've all been working on and planning for the past 9 months or so.

We each did two body suit paintings. However we felt like doing them. Some are very tattoo-ish some are more painterly and loose.

Hope you enjoy.

First up is Clay McCay.

His are titled: "Kundalini" and "dragon"

Acrylic on wood. I think they're like 7 feet tall. by probably 3 wide.









Next is Kim Reed.

Hers are titled: "Garden of Eden 1 & 2"

Oil on canvas

next is our counter guy, Matte Wagner.

He does a lot of cool collage shit.

His is titled "Evolutionarianism"

It's a digital collage on paper. Mounted on wood.




Here's mine. It's a front and back of the same imaginary person.

They are titled: "A Travelling Man 1 & 2"

Ink and watercolor on paper. Mounted on wood, and shellaced.









Thanks. Hope you enjoyed.

On another note, my friend and coworker Lefty has recently been doing many trades with other painters whom he respects. They would each paint a smaller piece (5"x7"ish) in trade. I really liked that idea. So if anyone is interested, I'd love to paint some smaller stuff and trade with any of you good folks in the hopes of filling a very bare wall at work.

    • I was able to add a picture I understand it will heal and fade eventually but I think the contrast of the ink is a different shade then the ink I already have. Also I feel like it’s a very busy tattoo for not being done.. can the white ink really change that like he says?
    • the new hand tattoo will be darker brighter more vivid than the rest of your  settled in sleeves.The hand tattoo will probably look more cohesive and not stand out so much once it settles in 6 months (without seeing it)
    • About two weeks ago I got my first hand tattoo, not my first tattoo or anything I have both sleeves done completely and even a neck tattoo. The hand tattoo is a tribute to my grandpa, it is a anchor with a banner with his name and there is a spider web to fill the rest of my hand as background. I would post a picture but I am writing this off a computer.  anyways I feel like the tattoo came out very dark in contrast compared to the rest of my sleeve it stands out and doesn't flow at all with it almost like I have a dark glove on, Idk if he did this because it is my hand and it does not hold ink as well so he was planning ahead but the web is very dark and over powers the anchor and my hand is covered in black ink. I know it is a new tattoo and its still angry and it will fade and calm down into a lighter color once it has healed but it still looks like its gonna have a darker contrast then the rest of the ink going all the way up my arm. I talked to my artist and he said the tattoo isn't done and there is still a lot of detail and white ink to be added to the whole tattoo to make it look better. but when i look at it it doesn't look like much can really be done because how covered my hand is in black ink from the web so I'm not sure what his plan really is . can the white ink he plans to throw in there really change the whole tattoo and how it looks/flows? Can tattoos look like this when they are unfinished and still need detail?  He is a great artist and I have been going to him for over a year now and I trust him because of the amazing sleeve he's done. I've heard of post anxiety from tattoos and I've defiantly had it before for maybe one or two out of the countless tattoos I have so I am aware it happens.  also maybe because its my hand and its uncoverable and always right in front of me maybe that is making the post tattoo anxiety a lot more intense? Brand new here was hoping to get some feed back maybe from some people that has experienced the same or tattoo artist out there that might have a response to this. Thank You.
