How do u like your Battle Royale ?

Recommended Posts

Seeing those awesome Bert Grimm pictures in recent posts reminds me of this traditional design which is originally credited to an unknown artist ca.1900.

The combatants are said to be locked in "mortal combat "

How do u like yours done?Do you favour the more chinese ,crazy looking traditional dragon a la Jerry Collins.Or are you partial to a more Japanese version ?

Even the animals are subject to change -who do you like to see in the mix ?

I've always thought a Battle Royale with Jeff Rassier's twisted animal combinations would be awesome. Surely there's some out there he's done that I'm just not finding photos of...

Haha...I have a mini Battle Royale done by Rassier. It's a panther-headed eagle versus a Hot Stuff-headed snake:

Well shit. I was right- that IS awesome. Hahaha thanks for posting that. I love the feathering on the neck of the panther. Cool transition from eagle to panther

That Stell tattoo's great. I dragged my bud out to Aloha Monkey in Burnsville, MN a couple years ago for something similar when Stell was here. I really like the one above, though even better. Awesome placement. I've seen that Rassier tattoo on Hogg''s flickr. That's Rassier's forte, and no one does it better. Regarding the panther head: I lasered the head of my stomach eagle a few times, as the composition of it and the surroudning legs makes no sense. I'm planning to have Bert Krak put a panther head on it. Above tattoo (and comment that further drew my attention to it) reassure me that I'm not as skewed as the eagle looks in trying to pull it off. The rest of the eagle's solid . . .

I'm starting a Battle Royale on my side (from my armpit to below my waistline onto my hip) Wednesday. Tiger vs. Snake.

I'm really excited...and a bit nervous about the ribs...

just got a mini-battle royale from stell a little over a week ago. snake and a jaguar.

i like to go to tattoo artists i don't have to explain much to, so i can give a vague description and trust i'll get an awesome interpretation.

i was thinking the snake would be in the jaguar's mouth of course but i didn't say that.

shortly after stell starts drawing something up he says "so you were thinking the snake would be in the cats mouth right?"

i said "yeah that's what i was thinking but you can do it differently if you have a different idea."

stell says, "well, i think that's the best idea...otherwise it just looks like they're hanging out together."

i really like the dragon/eagle/snake designs...but i sure as hell wasn't doing all that in one sitting.

    • I have 12 tattoos and my last few have healed so badly that I am reluctant to get anymore done. I stick to the healing routine everytime using mild anti bacterial wash 2/3 times a day, make sure it is dry before I add a pure moisturiser. I used to use bepanthan but no matter how well I air dried it, it still gunks up. I then tried just coconut oil which is better but im still not healing well. My last 5 tattoos have been colour and I'm wondering if this may be the issue. So desperate to find a reason for it as I absolutely love my tattoos and have so many more I have spent a lot of time designing that I want done. Maybe I am destined to only get black fine line ones.  
    • I got this tattoo back in November. I had it touched up in mid-December from the same artist and it still looks like this. You can see on the “N” that it almost looks like my skin is coming through the ink on the right side. Is it time to get it touched up for a third time but by a different artist? The missed ink is very noticeable. Thanks for your help!
    • Yep. Where do you live?  Maybe we can steer you to a couple of quality options . . .
