  1. hey all, I just moved from SF to DC, and I'm looking for an artist on the east coast to design a chest piece I've had in mind for a while. I thought this forum might be good for suggestions. I have several tattoos already, all black and grey, so I'm looking for someone who excels in B/G style. Mostly with heavy black ink. I'm looking for someone who is good at creepy/scary tattoos that are a mix of american traditional and russian prison styles. Not really looking for anything in the "horror" genre, but more like medieval occult-ish/satanist type stuff. One of my favorite artists is Alexander Grim (@alexandergrim on IG), but he is in St. Petersburg. In fact, most of my favorite artists are in Europe or Russia, like Andrey Kichatiy (@kichatiy on IG) in Moscow, or Barbe Rousse (@barbe_rousse_tattooer) in Berlin, or Cezilia Hjelt (@cezilia_gbgclassictattooing) in Gothenburg Sweden. Anyone have any suggestions? Any help is appreciated!
  2. So, I was wondering if anyone wanted to post up some awesome traditional skulls?
  3. Looking to get a traditional dagger tattoo in the near future as funds permit. Let's see what you got or any favorites you have seen.
  4. Since its the year of the dragon and dragons are bad ass lets see some dragons. Dragons you own or dragons you like, Post them up. I own these two. Thigh piece is from Shige, Yellow Blaze Japan and the dragon and sword is from Dean Sacred, Sacred Tattoo New Zealand.
  5. I remember seeing some work of Trevor Dalton from Tattoo City in San Francisco from back in 2002 i think , he did really cool American traditional tattoos, does anyone know where he is tattooing from now?? cheers
  6. My name is Charlie I tattoo in the UK, been going for a couple of years now, so relatively new to the tattoo scene with still so much to learn. Not judgemental, just here for a good time and to see whats going on out there/possibly meet some new people! Looking to travel a bit towards the end of this year/start of next year. I use instagram at the moment for a lot of my work (username: wulfbaron), or if you don't have that: https://www.behance.net/wulfbaron Cheers!
  7. 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 ?
  8. For me I see a picture of a tattoo or a tattooer doing a tattoo of a certain image and sometimes they just stick with me. I almost get obsessed in looking at variations of that one image and love seeing peoples takes on them. So lately I have been looking at, watching, and searching for ship or boat tattoos. I tend to enjoy ones that stick close to traditional tattoos but enjoy many of the variations. So here are some recent ones that I have been enjoying and wishing the quality of the pictures for some were better so I could really gaze at them. Lets see your ship or boat tattoos and/or those that you enjoy looking at as well.... Snappy Gomez LST Tattoo Gallery- Ship Mr. Frog LST Tattoo Gallery- Ship back piece in progress Do you have any updated pictures of this? Erik Gillespie LST Tattoo Gallery- Ship, Anchor & Heart
  9. hi all this is my introduction thread. im a huge enthusiast in tattoos and i love american traditional style hence the name. im going to school to major in art education but i all types of art. the reason i titled this thread trad. flash help is because i drew an american traditional design and would like some input on it. i had planned to get it on my left leg but placement is still up in the air and i dont know if i should keep all of the elements. i also want to get a homeward bound ship on the same leg in the future so i need to plan around that. constructive criticism is greatly appreciated. thanks in advance guys
  10. Getting tattooed the other day the artist mentions getting a dagger through the neck tattoo would be a good idea, Now all I can think of is getting it done I think I have a problem :D
  11. I'm Joe...new here, I was on another forum but there's not so much traffic there...seeing what Last Sparrow has to offer. I am 25 male from New Jersey (just outside of NYC) into American traditional tattooing. Some of my favorite artists who have tattooed me are, Todd Noble, Krooked Ken, Beau Brady, Jedd Hill, and Javier Rodriguez just to name a few. I am currently a chef at a banquet hall. And on the side I like to skate, brew my own beer, and just hang loose.
  12. Hey guys sorry if theres already a thread bout this, i couldnt find it if there was but feel free to let me know where it is and ill delete this post, but i have really got into American Traditional style and was wondering if anybody has any good pointers about drawing things in a traditional style.. for example, anybody can look at a horse head or a rose outside, but what are some key points in making things look more traditional?.. I dont want to have to keep looking at other artists flash, i want to be able to look at something at know what key points i could use that would help me give it a more traditional look rather than realistic.. thanks guys, Happy New Years!
  13. to do traditional tattoos, but who was. I am really interested in the history of traditional american tattooing, any ideas, books, names, etc would be greatly appreciated. Also any info on the transision into new traditional, tattooists, books etc would be great ;)
  14. Any suggestions where to take this? I was just going to do this with a super simple color scheme. Brown, red, light and navy blue, green, yellow. still have shading left too... he didnt want to work on the lower shit after the outline.
  15. I love this fucker! Great design and have been actually for some time now day dreaming about how good it would look as a backpiece. I have associated it to anarchism and the likes. Heres some history. Gadsden flag - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Gadsden Flag: Don't Tread on Me I couldnt find any good tattoos pics. There was a great flash in the Brooklyn Joe Lieber flash book. The pic was in someones myspace, who ever sold it. Cant find it. Post pics, any pics!
  16. www.rosskjones.com Howdy, i recently moved to los angeles and am now working at art and soul tattoos. www.artandsoultattoos.com 2600 south robertson blvd. los angeles ca. 90034 310-202-7203 [email protected] Come and check out my stuff and get tattooed. I also tattoo out of a private studio in san francisco once a month.
  17. I'm wanting to have an artist here finish up my entire leg with some Traditional pieces that tie together. Just wondering if it would be better to get em all done or at least placed and the ideas set at once or just get some here and there over time. It's a question for the artist really but I've still got a couple of months before its even possible so I thought id get the opinions of you swell folks
  18. looking for someone on the west coast preferably, as it will be multiple sessions and quite large. i know there's a ship thread in the tattoo designs section but not alot of talk. any push in the right direction or examples in someones portfolio would be appreciated greatly. i love kyle crowells ships, and have been tattooed by him so thats in the back of my mind as of now
  19. For a minute it seemed like a lot of people were into realistic black and gray portraits. Then I started seeing a bunch of realistic color portraits of Mel Gibson, The Joker and Jack Black and other movie stars. Now I see a lot of people doing what I would consider traditional tattoo portraits which I am really starting to dig. What is everyone's take on the portrait? I attached an example of the traditional portrait I was referring to.
  20. I understand that the meanings of tattoos can and often do change over time so I am curious to hear about what you know and/or have heard about tattoo meanings? I will start off with some common tattoos I see and hear similiar stories: Dragon tattoos? Nautical Star tattoos? Sparrow tattoos? Dagger tattoos? Butterfly tattoos? Dove tattoos? Anchor tattoos? Man's Ruin tattoos? Dice tattoos? Eightball tattoos? Do you have one of these tattoo designs? Tells us about it and what it means and post a pic!
