Body art sighting

2003-09-04 16:31:03.605754+00 by Shawn 4 comments

Saw this absolutely gorgeous tattoo while shopping at the mall Tuesday. I'll not claim to be a tat[Wiki] connoisseur but I've been around illustrated people a bit. This is by far the best work I've seen. The picture doesn't do it enough justice, but it was the quality of the shading that impressed me. I actually didn't think it was hand-done work at first.

Wow. That's a permanent tattoo and not a temporary or transfer? I'm gonna have to show this to a friend who's a tattoist and ask her about that. Dang.

(And that musta huuuuuurt.)

Yep. I thought it was a transfer too at first. Oh, yeah. Apparently it was done at Lucky Devil.

It will be very interesting to review these works 50 years from now to see how well they hold up when the canvas is old and wrinkly.

Now that's some nice ink...and Lucky Devil looks to have some good talent
