Artist Spotlight – Max Celli

Max Celli is an Italian tattoos artist who specializes in neo-traditional tattoos. He uses new age techniques and inks to give traditional tattoo design styles a fresh new look, bringing them into the 21st century with style and a level of quality that so few tattoos had back in the day. That being said, Max is no stranger to other tattoo styles and is just as good at them as he is with neo-traditional designs. In the gallery below you’ll see hints of new school tattoos and a badass black-and-grey realism design, which show the depth of his ability and should assure anyone who gets a tattoo drawn by Max that they’ve hired a very talented professional.

Olympic Athletes with their Badass Tattoos!

One of the last Olympic galleries we showed off was a collection of Olympic athletes who had gotten tattoos in honor of the Olympic Games. We spoke about how it was a momentous occasion for those individuals and just made sense. But in looking back over the post, we see how it could be easy to mistake what we said as saying that all Olympic athletes only get Olympic Games tattoos. This gallery is all about showing off Olympic athletes who have badass, non-Olympic-centric tattoos. These are some of the world’s fittest, most gifted athletes who also have impeccable taste in tattoo designs and artists. Hope you enjoy.   [the_ad id=”36293″] [the_ad id=”36294″] Read More »

Badass Witcher Tattoos

FAIR WARNING: One of the people who helps TAM put together these galleries is an avid gamer and is bringing you the gallery below. The rest of this post will be about the game. If you don’t care to know what The Witcher is, just skip to the gallery. The Witcher is a role-playing video game series created by CD Projekt RED, a game development studio based out of Warsaw, Poland. The first game in the franchise, titled simply The Witcher, came out on PCs in 2007 and received massive critical acclaim, particularly for its high quality pre-rendered visuals and soundtrack. It has since spawn two sequels, the last iteration of which – titled The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – was released on May 19th, 2015. The series has you play as Geralt of Rivia. He’s a Witcher – a genetically enhanced and highly trained human with special powers who primarily hunts to rid the world of dangerous monster. They travel the world in search of monster hunting contracts and take on the fiends that go bump in the night, but always for a price. Of course, the game’s story becomes much more convoluted than simple monster hunting as Geralt finds himself in the middle of warfare and political intrigue as kings and rebel leaders alike battle for land, freedom and power all around him. The Witcher franchise is, up to this point, the only series of games CD Projekt RED have worked on in the last decade. Each entry ... Read More »

Tattooed Olympic Athletes

If you’ve ever watched the Olympic Games for ten minutes then you’ve probably seen one of the somber tales of an Olympic athlete’s road to the Olympics. To be fair, it’s always the same thing. They worked really hard, were told in some way or another that they weren’t going to make it, but worked even harder and now they’re competing for the pride and joy of their home country. The story is the same because each athlete dedicates their life to getting in shape and good enough at their respective event to possibly get a chance to represent their country at the Olympics. Unlike athletes in other more popular professional sports, most Olympic athletes aren’t paid millions of dollars for their blood, sweat and tears. As most of us know, tattoos are a great way to memorialize life accomplishments, so it should come as no surprise that many Olympic athletes get tattoos to celebrate seeing their dreams come true. Here’s a gallery all about Olympic athletes and their tattoos.   [the_ad id=”36293″] [the_ad id=”36294″] Read More »

Awesome Torch Tattoos

The 2016 Rio Olympic Games are being held right now, as this is being written, which means the torch relay has been achieved and the Olympic fire has been lit. While the Olympic flame has always been a symbol of the Games since ancient times, the torch and torch relay event at the start of the opening ceremony started in 1936 during the Summer Olympics in Berlin. The torch connects each Olympic Games location with its origins in Greece by running the torch from the ancient site of the Olympic Games in Olympia, Greece to wherever the events are being held in the chosen host country. Today the torch is lit several months before the opening ceremony. Eleven women, who represent the Vestal Virgins, perform a celebration at the Temple of Hera where the torch is lit by sun rays that are concentrated by a parabolic mirror. The torch then travels around Greece before it starts making its way to the host city. After the torch lights the Olympic flame, the flame is kept lit throughout the Games until it is put out to symbolize their official end.  The torch has become the modern official symbol of the Olympic Games and the final stretch of the relay, which is often run by a celebrity of some sort, is one of the most watched events of the entire celebration. Over the years a lot of unique torch images have served to represent the Olympic torch. With so much cultural heritage behind ... Read More »

Does It Get Any Stranger Than This?!

Working within the tattoo and body modification industry for years, we’ve all seen a lot of strange things over the years. Which is why we have to ask if it gets any stranger than what you’ll see in the galleries below. Granted, we’re sure many people will think, “Oh course there are stranger things. There’s a lizard man walking about the world right now!” But the thing is, we at least understand those types of body modifications more than these travesties. At least the lizard man had a clear idea of what he wanted and achieved his ideal body image. We have no idea what happened to the people in this gallery though. And that makes it all incredibly strange to us. Read More »

Why You Shouldn’t Let Scratchers Tattoo You

Your friend has a tattoo gun and is looking for people to practice on? He/she can draw really well so you’re sure it’ll come out fine?! We’d like to think the people below had a conversation that included someone else asking those questions in an incredulous fashion, but the truth is probably that half of the people featured in the gallery below were drunk on some level and thought, “Tattoo? Hell yeah!” Do yourself a favor and make sure the tattoos you get are done by a professional and not some in-home scratcher that will leave you in one of our “bad tattoos” galleries.

Old Russian Prison Tattoos

Tattoos have been a part of prison culture for just about as long as modern tattooing has been around. It’s largely where tattoos got their bad reputation, with many people correlating tattoos with convicted criminals. We don’t want to perpetuate any stereotypes, but it’d be wrong not to acknowledge tattooing’s heritage even if it does have a rather dark history. Besides, we don’t know what any of these men were in prison for. All we know is that they got some sick tattoos while they were there. We hope you enjoy this historic gallery, and be sure to check back regularly for more tattoos every day. [the_ad id=”36293″] [the_ad id=”36294″] Read More »

What are Stick and Poke Tattoos?

Stick and poke tattoos are essentially jail tattoos. They’re unregulated tattoos people apply to each other by using any needle-like tool they can get their hands to stick and poke ink into someone else’s skin. That’s why most stick and poke tattoos look like shit. They’re crafted by people who have no experience tattooing whatsoever using the most basic instruments possible. Many people use ink they get out of everyday office pens to apply stick and poke tattoos. We’re not quite sure why they’ve become so popular in recent years. For the most part, stick and poke tattoos are terrible and should be avoided at all costs. The quality of the tattoos in the gallery below should be all the evidence you need to avoid stick and poke tattoos like the plague. [the_ad id=”36293″] [the_ad id=”36294″] Read More »

When Tattooing Goes Horribly Wrong!

Tattoos can go horribly wrong is a variety of ways, from misspelled words to design confusion. Unfortunately, tattoo guns don’t come with erasers. Mistakes often aren’t easy or simple to fix. You either have to go over the mistake again and hide it within the design or potentially be left with the mistake forever. The gallery below shows a bunch of tattoos who went horribly wrong, either in the overall decision-making process or during their application. Most of them are clearly screwed up because they were crafted by amateurs, and are prime examples of why you should always hire a professional for all of your tattooing needs.

What the Ffffffffff…

We’re all for people being free to modify their bodies as they wish, but we’re not going to pretend like we understand every body modification we’ve ever seen. Just because we’re in the industry doesn’t mean we “get it” any more than you do. Hence the gallery you see below. These are a collection of body piercing photos where we simply don’t understand why these people decided to get the piercings they got. Honestly, we can’t even comment to whether or not they’re good or bad. They just ARE – they exist. It’s an odd gallery to be sure, but one we thought you all might find as fascinating as we do.

Wow, Very Bad!

There are a lot of bad tattoos in the gallery below that will surely shock and amaze you at just how terrible they are. However, we’d like to talk about one in particular – the man with the dick down his leg. First of all, the tattoo is terribly drawn. It’s not even a good-looking dick. Secondly, this is one of the worst tattoo ideas anyone could ever have. Why would you get a tattoo of something that dwarfs one of your own body parts? It’s essentially a reminder of your own inadequacy at that point, because it’s clear as day you won’t ever reach the proportions of your tattoo! In short, we’re pretty sure he’s massively over compensating for something. [the_ad id=”36293″] [the_ad id=”36294″] Read More »
