Halloween Flash Day Tattoos!?

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone else went to a halloween flash event this year? I'd love to see people's experiences and what they got done!

Below are my vampire teeth, first arm tattoo on the inside of the bicep. Done by Shannon at Man's Ruin Tattoo in St Kilda, VIC Australia.

Thats a good one for Halloween flash. I usually ask tattooers when they are doing a "regular" tattoo whether or not they do the Halloween thing. Some really take offense to them, others genuinely seem to like it. I just always want the artists to be happy when they are tattooing me. I believe they will do a better job if they are having fun. 

Sorry for drudging up an old thread. All this Christmas bullshit has me missing halloween.

I got a Friday the 13th  (10/13) tattoo this year this year, that was also my birthday, and an oni on 10/22,but not one actually  on Halloween.

October is turning out to be "tattoo season" for me and my wife, we seem to get the most tattoos for the last few years in October.

The whole shop was doing them - each artist had drawn up a flash sheet and it was a first come, first serve kind of thing. So each tattoo was only done one :). I really loved it, it was so fun and an amazing experience. 

 

I'm not sure what you mean by 'good one for halloween flash' as this was my first experience and a really positive one :)

    • My ocelot was finished this afternoon.  I absolutely love it!  It's the last animal on my left arm sleeve.  Al that remains now is some leaves and vines to connect the animals.
    • A lot of people walk in to shops with different kinds of baggage relating to their body. Some people are conscious about scars, some don’t want a little fat showing when getting tattooed, some are self-conscious about their skin color and others are feel that they’re too skinny, among other things. You may find that going to an artist to have an area on your body that you feel vulnerable about worked on may boost your self-confidence. It may, and probably will, change your perspective on that body part. Artists have seen an array of people with a variety of vulnerabilities and issues. Many have “seen it all”, as they saying goes. I have personally had scars tattooed over, on my chest. They are from surgeries due to skin cancer, and I had always felt self-conscious of them since I got them, For me, it was important that my scars were camouflaged within the tattoo. My artist did just that, and now it’s a part of my body that I absolutely LOVE showing off. What’s the worst that can happen from going and chatting with someone? You may end up with a piece that you can’t wait to show off, or you may decide to not go through with it. At the very least, you can express your fears and desires to someone, which could hopefully lead to some healing.
    • They probably have something they put up for tattooing "exposed areas" that would require taking off an uncomfortable amount of clothing - most often drapes or a movable screen. A whole lot of the tattoo community is SUPER non-judgmental. I don't think you're going to run into an actual problem. You're in your head about it. The tattoo is going to be cool, and you're going to have a good time getting it and maybe some day you'll enjoy taking your shirt off!

      ok, i still have a few copies from the last run of my first 2 sketchbooks, 'pirated, passe, and politically incorrect' vol 1 and 2. if i remember correct they are 45 or 50 pages of clean line drawings. mostly neo-traditional hipster shit and original style traditional stuff.
      the new book is at the printer right now. 'street and state vacation' its just what it sounds like, old school prison and lowrider/teen angel stuff sorta like the style i came up on way back in the day but drawn a little bit better... same deal, all images are clean line drawings, not loose sketches. this book should be somewhere around 80-90 pages and is crammed full of cool stuff. first 2 books are $20 a piece plus the ride, new big ass book is $30 plus the ride. if you like shoot me an email and ill be happy to send you a few pages as a sample. patodonnelltattoo@yahoo.com or shoot me a text at (714)588-7394

      Picked up the new Chris Garver coloring book (for my reference library) at the book store. Titled: FLASH coloring in the Tattoo style. 

      "Cool tattoo art to color from an in-demand tattoo celebrity! Flash, a follow-up to the wildly successful Color Odyssey, presents even more of Chris Garver’s gorgeous designs. As a sought-after figure in the tattoo world, Chris is a perfect choice to bring together tattoo art and adult coloring—and this book perfectly showcases his distinct and detailed style. With images printed on single-sided pages, this book will attract both traditional coloring fans and tattoo devotees looking for ideas for their next inking."
      FYI About the Author
      Chris Garver is a professional tattoo artist at the world-renowned Invisible NYC on New York City’s Lower East Side. He is also a former star of TLC’s popular reality show Miami Ink. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, Chris began experimenting with tattooing at the age of 17 before attending Manhattan’s School of Visual Arts. He has been a full-time professional tattoo artist since moving to New York in his early 20s
      I think this a great introduction to the art, for the plain skins. 
      Though I take issue with the term "Tattoo Style" I can understand why he put that on the cover. It is a coloring book, with Tattoo related and familiar imagery contained within, so I get it.
      When flipping through the book, I found myself thinking, dagn, I would wear that...and that! 
      Congratulations to Chris Garver on his second book. 100 pages with perforated pages so you can tear a page out and color it.  I recommend picking up a copy.
      So LSTF Did you get one and what do you think about it?

      In the past year I've started drawing my own tattoo flash. I joined in hopes of getting some constructive criticism. I'm currently using pigment liners and Prismacolor markers, although I'm wanting to get into watercolors. I've attached some of my work in this thread. You can also see more on my Instagram account @anvilandanchor.
      Thanks,
