A Praying hands tattoo is a strong and great way to remember mother.  I did these ones on my friend Phil a working class electrician from England,  He’s a class guy and it was a honor for me to add to his collection this piece for his mother.  Respect your mothers.   Tattooed at Love Hate Notting Hill, London

Did this little number during my last trip to Love Hate London. A swallow, crown, and a diamond foot tattoo, was almost too much to fit on a normal foot luckily this guy had a large foot.

Rose Tattoos Never Get Old

The best thing about a rose tattoo is that they never get old, they are timeless.  Rose tattoos are some of my personal favorites.   This is a pic of some roses I freehanded on a guy from Germany years back and he came into the shop the other day at Wooster I took this pic.   A lot of tattoos that some people do these days look real nice and fancy in the picture day of,  but none of the new school no outline crap will maintain design integrity as nice as tattoo style tattoos.

Angel Tattoo On The Ribcage

Angel Tattoo

Today I tattooed this really nice kids ribcage,  the tattoo took about 4 and a 1/2 hours. but was a tough one,  any time your taking non stop pain for hours on end you really start to test the limitations of your tolerance.  Luckily we made it though.  Cool tattoo. “Count your blessings, not your burdens”

Tattoo Forrest Real Tattooing By A Master Craftsman

December 6th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Events | Friends | Tattoo - (Comments Off)

The tattooing is a very special unique community, tattooing is a job but it also is very much a lifestyle and a passion.  Our friend Forrest and when I say “Our” I mean the real tattoo community, and when I say “real tattoo community” I mean the tattooers that have given their lives to tattooing completely.   Yes, the final product, the tattoo is very important as the client will wear it for the rest of his/ her life,  but part of the tattoo is the energy the soul put into it by the artist.  Now if you sell a product that you don’t believe in then you are doing a great injustice to the craft of tattooing to the soul of tattooing and in turn the tattoos you do on people.  You are not and will not be recognized as a tattooer if you do tattoos and do not have any on you.  A bald wig salesman, a virgin sex therapist, a toothless dentist, a atheist priest…   Mahatma Gandhi said it best  “To believe in something, and not live it is dishonest”

Support the the real tattoo community not some culture vultures like the jamies on inkmaster.
