Who Ever Said Roses are Red?

@southeastustattoos

Roses aren’t just red, and we’re not even talking about tattoos. Roses can actually be bred to flower with all sorts of colors. That being said, the blue color in this gallery’s featured image isn’t one of them. The only way to get a blue rose is to color the petals yourself. Florists typically use a spray to color white roses blue in order to offer them to customers. Each different rose color actually stands for different attractions and kinds of love, ranging from romantic to friendship. Granted, most people don’t care or keep track of that, but it may be worth considering before you buy a bouquet of roses for someone. Read More »

Badass Harley-Davidson Tattoos

Jonathan Campos @urbanstattoo

Even if you’re not a fan of motorcycles, you’ve probably heard about Harley-Davidson before. They’re easily one of the most well-known and recognizable motorcycle brands in the world. The company was started in Milwaukee, Wisonsin in 1903 and was one of only two major American motorcycle manufacturers to survive the Great Depression. Today the company is still going as strong as ever before, bringing in over $5 billion in revenue each year with close to 6000 employees and over $9 billion in total assets. Harley-Davidson isn’t going anywhere any time soon, and you can expect many most tattoos like the ones seen in the gallery below to be had by generations of Harley fans for many more years still to come.   Read More »

Awesome Star Trek Tattoos

UN

Star Trek was one of the first science-fiction franchises to see widespread popularity. It began as a television series in 1966 and actually didn’t do very well at first. NBC was so unhappy with the show’s ratings that it threatened to cancel the show during the second season. The network ultimately renewed the series, but moved it to what was commonly called the “Friday night death slot”. The series was subsequently canceled after the third series. The years following the original series saw a major cult following that quickly made the series more popular than it ever was while it was on the air. An animated series ran from 1973 to 1974 and the first major motion picture came out in 1979, but Star Trek ultimately wouldn’t return until 1987, when The Next Generation premiered. Star Trek has seen various ups and downs ever since. As of this year, the franchise has had 13 feature films and 6 separate television series – the 7th, named Discovery, will premiere in 2017. We hope you enjoy these Star Trek tattoos whether you like the franchise or not.   Read More »

Artist Spotlight – Jojo Ackermann

Jojo Ackermann @jojoackermann 10

Jojo Ackermann has been tattooing since 1992 and was in a street shop until recently moving to Ten Thousand Waves in Sherman Oaks, CA. As you’ll see from his work featured in the gallery below, Jojo doesn’t really specialize in any single tattooing style. He enjoys giving his clients the ability to customize their requests however they want and challenging himself to be able to create any sort of vision. That being said, he is a true artist and his least favorite types of tattoos are quotes and/or lengthy lettering designs. He also prefers to create original designs instead of simply recreating something someone saw on Pinterest or found on Google Images. In addition to tattooing, Jojo also paints and sells each of his paintings. He rarely makes prints, making each purchase a one-of-a-kind original, and he does paint by commission too.   Read More »

Artist Spotlight – Andrés Acosta

Andrés Acosta @acostattoo 1

Andres Acosta began tattooing in Venezuela in 2009 before moving to Houston in 2010 to pursue a professional career as a tattoo artist. While he may have only been tattooing for seven years, he’s been an artist his entire life, which is why his artwork is leagues ahead of many other tattoo artists who’ve been in the industry for just as long as he had. He specializes in colorful realism and surrealism tattoos that are incredibly eye-catching and detailed. He’s easily one of the most talented tattoo artists in the world and, if possible, you should definitely try to have him add a piece to your collection.

Badass Dinosaur Tattoos

@blackanviltattoo

According to the Jurassic World box office results, everyone LOVES dinosaurs. (Either that or Chris Pratt has a metric ton of pull with a wide range of audiences.)

The gallery also has a lot of style and design variety, which should give everyone something specific to love and a lot of inspirational possibilities.

Skulls, Skulls, Skulls II

Fernando Tampa @tampatattoo

The other day we brought you a gallery all about skull tattoos. (Well, it was yesterday but this is the internet where time is relative so…) We found a ton of skull tattoos while looking for content for that gallery. So many, in fact, that we decided to break them up into two galleries instead of hitting you with just one massive list. It’s pretty incredible how much variety can be seen throughout these two skull tattoo galleries. They show off just how creative artists can be while utilizing similar subjects, ensuring no two tattoos – even if they’re created by the same person – are alike. (Unless you specifically wanted your tattoo to look exactly like someone else’s of course.)   Read More »

Artist Spotlight – Marcin Aleksander Surowiec

Marcin Surowiec @surowiec 2

Marcin Aleksander Surowiec is professional tattoo artist who works out of Warsaw, Poland and specializes in… well, that’s a little difficult to explain. Some people would say that he primarily works in surrealism, but we’re not so sure that’s an accurate way to describe Marcin’s unique tattoo design style. That’s why we’re not going to categorize him. Granted, we don’t want to categorize anyone, but genre titles tend to make it easier for us to describe a tattoo artist’s particular style. This is one of those moments where nothing would do the artist justice though. We highly suggest you check out the gallery below and come to your own conclusion. Regardless what you conclude though, he’s undoubtedly a highly talented artist. Warsaw, Poland IG – https://www.instagram.com/surowiec/?hl=en FB – https://www.facebook.com/rawtattoo Read More »

Skulls, Skulls, Skulls

David García @davidgarciatattoo

People generally don’t like being faced with their own mortality, but for some reason a carefully crafted professional skull tattoo doesn’t do that. Maybe it’s because skulls are just badass-looking, or that people can overlook the reminder when simultaneously faced with amazing art. For whatever reason though, skulls are found everywhere in tattoos. You’d be hard-pressed to find someone with a body full of tattoos that didn’t have at least one skull design of some descript. Even people who don’t have skull tattoos can appreciate them too, so that’s why we’ve put together this badass tattoo gallery that’s all about skulls.   Read More »

Sensual Succubus Tattoos

@jaybaxterart

A succubus is a feminine supernatural entity, often portrayed as demonic in nature, that seduces men through sexual activity and feeds off them in some way, shape or form. In today’s vampire and werewolf focused culture, succubi aren’t often used in works of supernatural fiction. However, they’ve been around in folklore for millennia. Their seductive overtones make succubi perfect icons for tattoo designs. They’re easily used to make statements on the idea of the feminine figure and its glorification, or just as a unique subject for a supernatural pin-up girl tattoo or some other sexy design. Enjoy.

Badass Knee Tattoos

UN3

We’ve covered a lot of tattoo areas. Bisceps, triceps, breast tattoos – hell, we’ve even created a gallery dedicated to boob tattoos! We thought we’d covered just about everything, and then we realized we hadn’t ever even mentioned knee tattoos. There are a lot of leg tattoo areas that people commonly get tattoos on – the knee is not one of them. Sure it’ll get covered if you get a tattoo all the way down your leg, but not many people get a specific tattoo on the front or back of their knee. With this gallery, we’re showing off a bunch of knee tattoos that you’ve probably never seen before.   Read More »

Are You Still Playing Pokemon Go?

@pokemon.ink

Pokemon Go is one of the biggest mobile app phenomena of recent memory. After numerous new articles and over five million Instagram pictures tagged with #PokemonGo, it seems the hype is finally dying down a bit. In honor of the game’s impressive ability to get millions of people to get off their ass and move around more in five weeks than the Wii ever has, we’re bringing you this Pokemon tattoo gallery. Yes, we know, you’re probably sick of seeing Pokemon or remotely hearing the name by now. Consider this the franchise’s last hurrah, at least for a little while, on this site and enjoy. Read More »

Can you Endure and Survive?

@fanny_rgt_

If you enjoyed our last two video game galleries, the ones focused on the Fallout and Witcher franchises, then you’ll probably enjoy this post just as much. If not, well, you were warned these galleries might become regular occurrence in the Witcher post and they’re great tattoos regardless of your interest in video games anyway so… Unlike the previous two gaming galleries, this one isn’t focused on a franchise but on a singular title – The Last of Us. (Although it’s surely going to get the sequel and spin-off treatment soon because money.) The Last of Us is a game developed by Naughty Dog, an illustrious gaming developer studio that’s been around since 1984 (when it was called Jam Software) and brought gamers everywhere some of the most popular titles in gaming history, such as Jack and Daxter, Crash Bandicoot and the Uncharted series. For The Last of Us, Naughty Dog partnered with Sony Computer Entertainment as its publisher, making the game a Playstation 3 exclusive. Ironically enough, it was released at the tail end of the Playstation 3’s primary life cycle and was one of the last PS3 exclusives to be released just before the PS4 was launched. Everyone was all set for the next generation of console gaming when this game hit shelves and made a massive waves in the gaming industry. To say The Last of Us garnered a positive critical reception would be a massive understatement. Every year games media outlets proclaim the “Game of the ... Read More »
