Artist Spotlight – Coen Mitchell

Coen Mitchell @coenmitchell14

  Coen Mitchell @coenmitchell Auckland, New Zealand Coen Mitchell is a professional tattoo artist based in Orewa, Auckland, New Zealand who works alongside Steve Butcher and three other talented artists at Matt Jordan’s Ship Shape Tattoo Studio. Even though he’s only been tattooing for three years, Coen has made a name for himself with what he calls “mosaic flow”, a unique form of linework/dotwork tattooing style. He was inspired by Polynesian patterns, symmetry and use of flow on the body to create his unique style. You’ll find plenty of mosaic flow tattoos in the gallery below, but he also tattoos black and grey realism/portrait tattoos – although he’s no stranger to using color too. If you ever find yourself in New Zealand and looking for a unique tattoo style for your next tat, you can’t go wrong with Coen Mitchell. IG – FB –   Read More »

Badass Unique Animal Tattoos

Mark Duhan @markduhan

There are a lot of animals that get a bunch of love from tattoo enthusiasts, like dogs, cats and lions. But there are a ton of animals that you don’t see nearly as often, making it hard for us to create a full length gallery for them. That’s why we’re bringing you today’s unique creatures gallery. These are badass animal tattoo designs that feature animals that aren’t the subject of tattoos as often as their more popular counterparts. We’re not saying these animals are less popular in general, we just have a hard time finding stunningly done tattoos of them. If you have a unique animal tattoo design you want to share, be sure to do so on Instagram and maybe you’ll all make it possible for us to feature some of these animals in their own gallery.   Read More »

Puurrfect Cat Tattoos

Matteo Pasqualin @matteopasqualin

Earlier we talked about man’s best friend (you can check it out here), so it’s only fair we now bring you a gallery about its feline counterpart. The ongoing debate about whether or not dogs and cats are better will continue to rage despite any claims we make, and frankly there are people in both camps here at TAM so we wouldn’t be able to come up with a definitive answer anyway. That being said, even dog lovers can’t deny how amazing these cat tattoos look. If you’re a lover of great tattoos, you’ll find a way to set aside your dog/cat opinions and love these tattoos no matter what.   Read More »

Stunning Man’s Best Friend Tattoos

Matteo Pasqualin @matteopasqualin

Dogs are man’s best friend. This is usually the point where we’d give you some fun facts as to why this idiom exists, but do we really have to? It’s a well-known fact all over the world – like dogs being a thousand times better than cats. (Okay, maybe that last bit was more opinion than fact.) Recent studies have discovered that many domestic dogs come from the now extinct Taymyr wolf that once existed tens of thousands of years ago. These new findings suggest that domesticated dogs started to arise around the time people became hunter-gatherers, not agriculturists – which is much sooner than previously thought. We’ve put together a tattoo gallery all about man’s best friend. Even if you – for some unknown reason – prefer cats over dogs, you can’t deny these tattoos are simply amazing.   Read More »

Stunning Symbolic Peacock Tattoos

Roy vd Berg  @royboytattoo

The peacock has been a prized creature due to its majestic appearance and scarcity for centuries. Historically, the peacock has always stood as a symbol of nobility for its regal outward appearance and watchfulness for the eye-like designs on its feathers that it uses to trick predators into thinking it’s larger than it really is. It can also stand for guidance, holiness and protection too. The peacock is a very beautiful, colorful and unique bird, making it a prime tattoo design subject even if you don’t care about the symbolism it comes with. We hope you find the following peacock tattoos as exquisite as we do.   Read More »

Most Amazing Eye Tattoos

Andrzej Niuniek Misztal @niuniekrock

Some say the eyes are the window to the soul. If that’s the case then the people in these galleries just opened a few extra windows. This gallery is focused on eye tattoos – not tattoos that people get in their eyes, that’s something different entirely. The human eye has been used symbolically for centuries, from the Eye of Horus to the Illuminati’s Eye of Providence – otherwise known as the all-seeing eye of God. As you can see from the gallery below, the human eye can go with a vast amount of designs. Got an eye tattoo of your own? Share it with us on Instagram or Facebook and maybe you’ll see your tattoo in our next gallery!   Read More »
