The Phenomenal Benjamin Lloyd Collection

2

New Zealand tattoo artist Benjamin Lloyd is bringing smiles to sick children’s faces through the use of tattoos. No, he’s not actually tattooing young children. He utilizes a special non-toxic ink and airbrushes the tattoos on. Each one takes about nine minutes to create and washes off in the shower. However, while the tattoos may be temporary, the joy and confidence boost they bring to the children and people in need isn’t. Mr. Lloyd knows as much from first-hand experience. As a child, he was often bullied and teased at school over a burn he had on his hand. In an effort to avoid the bullying, young Benjamin would draw intricate designs over his hand and up his sleeve. Over time and a lot of practice, he became a talented artist. What you see in the videos and galleries below is his way of giving back, of using the lessons he learned throughout his life to better the lives of others. All you have to do is see the smiles on these children’s faces to know he’s making a positive difference in their lives. And it’s all done through tattoos. Sure, they may not be permanent, but the core idea and values still remain. The next time you see someone looking down on tattoos and tattoo culture, politely point them towards the Benjamin Lloyd Collection. It may not change their minds, but it’s might at least bring some positivity to their life – and that’s something we could all use ... Read More »

Andrea Lanzi @antikorpo11

Andrea Lanzi @antikorpo Andrea Lanzi is a self-taught artist who has been tattooing for over 20 years and is practiced in all forms of art from simple drawings to sculptures. He specializes in a sort of new school realism tattoo style that he’s cultivated through over a decade of tattooing and made his own.

Becky Foster @beckyfostertattoo 9

Becky Foster @beckyfostertattoo Becky Foster is a phenomenal tattoo artist who works out of Norwich, England and doesn’t tend to specialize in any given form of tattooing.

Like a lot of tattoo artists, Becky prefers for people to focus more on her art than herself, so we’ll let the tattoos speak for her from here on out. We just hope you enjoy the gallery, and if you ever find yourself in Norwich, England you should look her up for a badass Becky Foster original of your own.

Artist Spotlight – Derek Turcotte

Derek Turcotte @drkturcotte8

Derek Turcotte is a tattoo artist who specializes in new school tattoos and works out of Canmore, Alberta Canada. He’s so good that many people consider him to be the new school tattoo master, and be sure to check out the pictures in the gallery below before you start to disagree. That being said, his style isn’t entirely new school focused. It’s a unique blend of realism and new school coupled with over-exaggerated illustrative drawings that combine to create unique collages you won’t see anywhere else. He excels with color and his talent oozes out of each tattoo he designs. If you have a chance to get a tattoo done by Derek Turcotte, do not pass up the opportunity.

Artist Spotlight – Timmy B

Timmy B @timmy_b_4133

Timmy B @timmy_b_413 Timmy B started tattooing in 2005, but not in the traditional sense some would assume. He didn’t undergo an apprenticeship. Instead, Timmy started his tattoo career by working out of other people’s kitchens and participating in tattoo parties every weekend he could. He used a toaster oven as an autoclave and scrubbed tubes bare-handed. He couldn’t find a shop that would take him under their wing so, determined to start learning how to tattoo, Timmy B bothered a kitchen magician tattoo artist for months until he finally agreed to hire Timmy for $100 a day, with parties often running up to 12 hours. Timmy specializes in a blend of realism and new school art styles, which you can see characterized in his work that’s featured throughout this gallery. He works out of Tattoo Afterlife, also known as NiteOwl Tattoo, in downtown Northampton, MA on the corner of Pleasant and Pearl St.  NiteOwl Tattoo http://www.niteowltattoo.com/ Northampton Massachusetts IG – https://www.instagram.com/timmy_b_413/?hl=en Read More »

Artist Spotlight – Rember Orellana

Rember orellana @rember_tattoos7

He always loved to draw and paint though. In 2007 a friend of his suggested he look into tattooing, and Orellana hasn’t looked back since. Orellana is an all-around artist. Looking for a portrait realism design? He can do that. Want something more abstract? He can do that too. He doesn’t tie himself to any one specialty and switches up his styles on a tat-by-tat basis. His quality and ability never falters, making him an excellent choice for anyone looking to get any kind of tattoo imaginable. He’s based out of Dallas, Texas but travels often while trying to make an appearance at every tattoo show and convention he can. If you get a chance to have him tattoo something for you, we highly suggest you take advantage of the opportunity. Dallas, TX.
