Looking to start acquiring original flash for framed artwork display.

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I have been looking to spruce up my apartment with some flash prints that I can frame. Obviously I can't afford Horiyoshi III original prints at this point so I was hoping someone can point me in the direction as to where to locate artist's flash originals that they sell or general areas of research that could help me find some amazing works.

Thanks in advance for your help all!

Pat

if you follow any of your favorite artists' blogs, twitters, facebooks, etc. they usually post about paintings/flash sets they've done and i bet more than a few would be willing to sell originals and or prints.

The Tattoo Elite International is exactly what I was looking for. It has quite a few of my favorite tattoo artists so come payday, I will be picking up a few of these items. Saving up for pieces from Troy Denning, Mike Rubendall, Scott Sylvia, Chris Garver, Henning Trevino, and Horitomo-Kazuaki Kitamura.

Thank you for a great recommendation!

I actually started a thread on this myself a few months back. Tattoo Elite is a good one but actually checking out stuff directly from an artist's site is better. I swung by Thomas Hooper's show to snag a print, plus places like shirtanddestroy.com out of brooklyn sometimes carry prints (plus wicked t-shirts).

Tattoo Elite is great, and I have spent some money on some great flash there, but yeah I second the obvious choice of contacting favorite artists for one-of-a-kind pieces of artwork. It's much better imo to own & display something truly unique. Might be more $ than a print but worth every penny.

Try writing an actual letter to them! Never doubt the impact of hand written letters. I never type or print out my letters to people. For some artists it's the only way to contact them. For instance DeVita can only be reached via just letters & maybe a phone call.

Nothing beats the impact of a hand written letter.

    • So I recently got a tattoo on my inner right forearm, and I am a pretty big PC gamer, playing many hours a day. I tend to drag my arm over my mouse pad for mouse movements, and am worried about how it will affect my tattoo? Should I worry? I am thinking of buying an arm sleeve later on when my tattoo fully heals to prevent the direct contact between the tattoo and mousepad. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    • Hey Jacob!  As, again, is mentioned above it's going to take a few weeks before you see how your tattoo is healed. The milkiness is normal and should fade with time. As long as you're not experiencing any signs of infection just keep taking care of it as your artist instructed and your tattoo should be just fine. Your tattoo looks great by the way! Congrats on the new ink!
    • Everything @Dan said, plus it will NEVER look the same as it did when you walked out the shop doors.
