Statute of Liberty Pin Up Girl Tattoo

September 25th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Tattoo - (Comments Off)

This was fun tattoo, on a friendly Australian man who was a tattoo collector and was traveling the states for the first time with his wife.  He wanted a regular Statue of Liberty at first but after showing him this Pin Up Statue of liberty drawing, he fortunately had a change of heart.  Thanks for letting us do our thing with your idea, I know we were both happy with the results.

Clipper Ship Shin Tattoo Done at Wooster Street NYC

September 14th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Tattoo - (Comments Off)

People come into our shop Wooster St Social Club/Ny Ink all day long for little trinkets and small souvenir tattoos, which is fine and all, and honestly I have no problem doing them all day.  But the magic really happens when a customer comes in for a nice tattoo like this.  A good idea and a open mind.  Why would you have Jesse James build you a scooter when he’s a super sick custom bike builder, do you get my point?

Pin Ups are Always a Good Idea for a Tattoo

August 28th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Tattoo | Uncategorized - (Comments Off)

pin-up girl, also known as a pin-up model, is a model whose mass produced  pictures see wide appeal as popular culture . Pin-ups are intended for informal display, e.g. meant to be “pinned-up” on a wall. Pin-up girls may be glamor models, fashion models, or actresses. “Pin Up“.    This tattooed was directly inspired buy the great american Pin Up artist Gil Elvgren.  I generally prefer to tattoo pin ups just a tad bit more traditionally then this, but this is a good middle ground, as super fine-line pin ups don’t hold the test of time as well as the clean bold classic and timeless traditional style one do.

Koi Fish Tattoo On Arm

July 31st, 2012 | Posted by admin in Reference | Tattoo - (Comments Off)

One legend depicts how a Koi climbed up the falls on the Yellow River at a point called Dragon Gate and was transformed into a dragon. Based on that legend the Koi became a symbol of perseverance, tenacity, ambition, aspiration and advancement. Another remarkable thing about the Koi is that when it is caught, it would lie still on the chopping board without struggling or flapping around. This led to the Koi being a symbol of courage, composure, peace and tranquility under pressure.  The Koi are also referred to as “living jewels,” and are also associated with good fortune. The image of five golden koi are said to mean “eternal wealth” and well-being.

There is a silly debate on which direction the koi should face, up or down.  As a tattoo especially a western style one, the orientation is less significant and more about the style and quality of the tattoo as a piece of tattoo art.  Koi tattoos carry different meanings for different people. Even the placement of the fish may mean something to certain people. Obviously, the ultimate meaning of any tattoo would always be unique and personal for the person who has it.
