Hilarious and/or awful drawings that never got made into tattoos

Recommended Posts

This comes after a comment Julio made: "this guy rolled through the shop in san jose once. kinda rockabilly type with is rockabilly girl. he did have a mustache and goatee going on. but under the mustache you could see he had a mustache TATTOOED on him!!!!!!! it was kinda in the shape of the pringles guy.

he wanted a day of the dead sugar skull of him and his girl with a dagger. i drew one with the silly mustache. he never came back to get it tattooed. i think i offended him with the funny mustache on the skull that represented him."

There have gotta be more folks holding on to drawings like this that never happened!

When I got my Leg done about a month ago, the dude I was getting tattooed by had drawn up a picture of The Dude (Big Lebowski) as a zombie, throwing up devil horns, smoking a joint, and the script read "The Dude Abides..." Kinda cliche for the script, but the drawing was insane.

Wish I had of gotten a picture of that.

I have a thick file of artwork I drew that people never got. Sometimes I will pin it up on my board at the shop and someone sees it and wants it! But really, I want to make a book of client art and sketches, then a picture of what the tattoo turned into. I appreciate clients attempting to get what's in their head out on paper, but man oh man, we see some funny stuff.
