Realistic Snake Tattoo

Martin Kukol @martin_kukol_tattoo_artist

You either like snakes or you don’t – and we’re pretty sure you wouldn’t click on this gallery if you fell into the latter category. Snakes are thought to have evolved from burrowing or aquatic lizards from the Jurassic Period. Modern snakes are one of the oldest reptiles on earth, and have existed for 55 – 60 million years. There are over 3,000 species of snakes scattered throughout the world, from snakes indigenous to the rainforest to those who travel the seas. If you’re a fan of snakes, we’re sure you’ll love this tattoo gallery.  Read More »

Professional Piercer… My Ass!!!


Professional piercers don’t pierce out of their homes and their work doesn’t look like what you’ll see in the gallery below. Welcome to a clear cut what-not-to-do gallery that focuses on making sure you don’t potentially risk your life by getting pierced by the same morons who pierced these people. (Although we’re pretty sure most of them self-pierced.) Getting pierced by a friend or some other amateur may seem like a great idea to save money, but there’s a reason professionals exists. Poor piercings can cause irreparable damage to your body, so don’t be an idiot and get all of your piercings done right or not at all.Read More »

Super Spiderman Tattoos


Yeah, sure, Batman and Superman are easily the most recognizable and famous comic book superheroes. But Spiderman is easily the 3rd most popular and up in the 1st and 2nd spots for many people. The first Marvel-based adaptation of the web crawler hit movie theaters all around the world in Captain America: Civil War, which comes out next week on Blu Ray and whatnot. The adaptation was met with critical acclaim by comic and non-comic fans alike, and now there’s a constant stream of news about the upcoming Spider-man: Homecoming film that will serve as the first standalone Marvel-based Spiderman movie. That’s why you’re getting a Spiderman gallery today. (Well that and the fact that he’s the favorite comic book hero of a certain geek who works for TAM and has a bit of control over some of these galleries.)Read More »

Sensational Skateboard Tattoos


The first skateboards were made with wooden boxes or boards and roller skate wheels. However, that’s all anyone really knows about the beginning of skateboarding. The best its origins can be narrowed down to is sometime in the 1940s or early 1950s by surfers in California. The first manufactured skateboards were ordered by a Los Angeles surf shop and were used as something for surfers to do during their downtime. By the 1960s though, skateboarding was starting to come into its own as a sport, with the first broadcasted skateboarding competition being the 1965 National Skateboarding Championships. Skating has since become a sport and phenomenon of its own, one that many tattoo enthusiasts love just as much as tattoos/tattooing. Thus this skateboarding tattoo gallery was born. Enjoy.Read More »

Point Out the Fail…..Ready, Set, GO!


Have you ever seen those old “Spot the Difference” images – where two nearly identical images are placed side-by-side and you have to point out the subtle differences? Think of this tattoo gallery like that, only there’s only one image and you get to point out all the ways the tattoo or piercing in the image went wrong. Feel free to talk about placement, design, line work, etc. These images are so bad that you don’t need to be a professional tattoo artist or piercer to see where they went wrong. So have fun and let us know what you find in the comment section below.Read More »

Badass Dead Space Tattoos


Dead Space is a third-person shooter gaming franchise that started very much as a survival horror game series before pivoting to pure action. It was basically hit with the Predator effect – where everything’s full of suspense and intrigue until you know what the Predator looks like. Since the franchise started in 2008 there have been three main titles and three spin-offs. The last Dead Space game to come out was Dead Space 3 in 2013. It was reported that EA shut down production of Dead Space 4 due to poor sales figures for Dead Space 3, but the publisher has said that the report of Dead Space 4’s demise is “patently false”. However there’s still no word on whether or not another Dead Space game is in development. Sure, it’s a bit of an obscure series, but we hope fans of the franchise enjoy the tattoo gallery below.Read More »

Lovely Lower Back Tattoos… We Think…


It was really difficult to find decent looking lower back tattoos. Either the tattoos were awful or the pictures were taken by a 4-year-old who couldn’t keep his hand still while tapping the camera button on his iPhone. (Seriously, why are so many people bad at taking pictures?) We’ll let you be the judge on whether or not these lower back tattoos are actually good. They were some of the better pictures we came across and the tattoos look decent at the very least. It certainly seems like lower back tattoos get a bad reputation for a good reason.Read More »

Amazing Leopard (Jaguar?) Tattoos


Yes, we put together the tattoo gallery below with the intention of focusing on leopards but we’re not quite sure all of the tattoos depict leopards. Some of the tattoos look like they may be of jaguars. While both big cats fall into the Panthera genus, they are not the same. But we’re not zoologists and we’re assuming most of the tattoo artists and customers involved in the tattoos below aren’t either. (That should be a pretty safe assumption.) Does it really matter though? If you’re a fan of leopards then you probably like jaguars too. So here’s a leopard gallery that might have some sneaky jaguar tattoos too.Read More »

Badass Mortal Kombat Tattoos


Mortal Kombat is a fighting video game franchise that began in 1992 and has been as popular and influential to the fighting game genre as the Street Fighter genre ever since. The series made a name for itself by essentially being the R-rated version of Street Fighter, with bloody finishing moves called Fatalities that were considered so gruesome they were partially responsible for the creation of the ESRB video game rating system. Over nearly 25 years the franchise has spawn dozens of gaming titles, multiple movies, comic series, stage shows and even collectible card games. It’s beloved by many, which is why it was easy to find these ten fantastic tattoos based on characters from the franchise.Read More »

Amazing Angel Tattoos


Angels are regarded as supernatural/spiritual beings that are superior to humans in every respect. They appear in a variety of religious texts and thousands of supernatural stories, often as forces of good dedicated to helping good vanquish evil. They’re usually the most virtuous beings in any stories where their featured. However, in recent times they’re often shown to have flaws or are not the virtuous do-gooders everyone makes them out to be. You’ll even see these ideals featured in the angel tattoo gallery below. Where do you stand on angels? Do you have any angel tattoos of your own?Read More »

Fabulous Vegas Tattoos


Las Vegas is easily one of the most wondrous cities in the world. People fly from all over to gamble in luxurious casinos and resorts on the famous – or infamous, depending on your luck – Las Vegas Strip. It’s a city with some of the brightest lights that can be seen from space, and where starry eyed youths tend to lose thousands of dollars before hopefully learning hard lessons and stemming the blood flow from their bank accounts. Yes, it’s a wondrous city full of hopes and aspirations. Which is why many people have chosen to immortalize the city on their skin. We hope you enjoy these Vegas tattoos as much as you do or don’t enjoy the city itself.Read More »

Some of the Best Ear Tattoos


The ear doesn’t give much room to work with, but that doesn’t mean your tattoo options are as limited as you may think. You don’t even necessarily have to get a tattoo that people are bound to see. Tattoos on the back of, or behind, the ear are easily concealable even during work interviews while under close inspection. Ear tattoos also don’t hurt nearly as much as you may think – albeit tattoo pain is different for everyone. Hopefully this gallery at the very least fascinates and/or entertains most of you and possibly even inspires a few of you.Read More »
