Stunning New School Tattoos

Screen shot 2016-03-31 at 11.45.08 AM

Anyone who says tattoos aren’t art doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Some of the most talented artists in the world are tattoo artists, placing their masterpieces on the canvas of others. Tattoo artists may not have gallery openings or wind up with their work hung in museums, but they’re appreciated all around the world by millions of people. But you knew that already, didn’t you? Why are we preaching to the choir? Because today we have a gallery that perfectly encapsulates the unique artistry behind tattoos – the new school. There’s been a distinct shift in traditional tattoo style over the past few decades. More and more people from all walks of life are enjoying the artistry that tattoos have to offer, but many are opting to get designs that are a bit different from the Sailor Jerry classics many tattoo enthusiasts recognize as classics. New school tattoos are new, colorful versions of classic tattoo motifs. They combine color and black/grey to create an often cartoon-y version of a classic tattoo design or theme. These tattoos are often brighter, bolder, and have a higher quality of shading and detail than their older counterparts. These new school tattoos came about due to the natural advances in ink and tattooing technology that give modern tattoo artists more tools to work with than they had decades ago. That isn’t to say new school tattoos are inherently better than their old school counterparts, they simply make use of new technology and a wider ...Read More »

James Edward Quaintance III or Jimmy Q is a pro skater, model, tattoo artist and rock star born in Los Angeles. He is the lead singer of the punk rock band called Former Lovers.

He was born in Venice and was later signed by Select Models where he opened the door for tattooed models to walk the runway in serious shows.  Jimmy was in all the major shows (Oliver Spencer, Pringle of Scotland) while also appearing in numerous magazines (Nylon, Huge, Wylder, lookbook for Beautiful Fül). James obviously loves tattoos and he is a walking talking piece of art and a promoter of the FreshTrends culture that’s so big in LA. He doesn’t only proudly showcase his tattoos, but he also practices – he’s a professional tattoo artist himself and did his apprenticeship in Venice. content/uploads/2016/03/tumblr_m93cqcTbKF1qcjubko1_540.jpg” alt=”tumblr_m93cqcTbKF1qcjubko1_540″ width=”623″ height=”935″ />Read More »

Minimalist Tattoos: 10 Proven Cases Where Less Is More

Screen shot 2016-03-28 at 1.02.27 PM

We here at Tattoo Artist Magazine see a lot of tattoos on a daily basis and cover a lot of the larger, incredibly detailed designs at length. But today we want to focus a bit more on smaller tattoos that have a big impact. As the age old adage goes, sometimes less is more. In the case of the tattoos in the gallery below, we couldn’t agree more. These tattoos are massive designs and many of them don’t include a ton of detail, but that doesn’t make them any less impactful or impressive. It’s easy to forget that tattoos aren’t about being big and boisterous. Tattoos are body art that you have to live with for the rest of your life. They’re meant to have a strong personal impact, giving you full control over your body image and the images you decide to display to the world. Sometimes less can be used creatively, like the lion puzzle that’s missing pieces or the snowy mountain range that uses the person’s skin color to full effect. The side abdominal flower design uses less ink to give it a softer look, strategically using shading instead of dark outlines to create the picture and really bring the flower to life. You’ll probably also notice many of the tattoos featured below don’t make use of color, and the one colorful design only makes use of one color too. A talented artist can do a lot with one color, utilizing shading techniques to give the design ...Read More »

  Cancer SUCKS and the people that have to undergo this horrible journey are truly heroes.  Some people celebrate overcoming cancer with ribbon tattoos, and for family and friends of victims it is often very therapeutic to get ribbon memorial tattoos.  The ribbon has signified supporting the fight against cancer since 1992.  Susan G. Komen was the first to start the movement with their pink breast cancer awareness ribbon, and then other charities followed suit in support for certain types of cancer.  We think its a beautiful sign of support and would like to share the most beautiful tattoos displaying these ribbons.    Read More »

Successful High Fashion Models with Tattoos

norman

High fashion has only in the past few years begun to accept heavily tattooed models in its shows but it has come quite a long way in a short time. Paris Fashion Week featured more heavily tattooed models this year than ever before and most of the people sporting tattoos on the runway aren’t considered tattoo aficionado collectors.  When it comes to fashion one would think it would be only the best tattoo artists in the industry displayed on their skin. We are however, thrilled that there are more and more inked bodies adorning the runways today, and don’t expect this to drop off anytime soon. Tattoos are here to stay on the catwalk.  So who are the tattooed gods and goddesses that have taken over fashion? Here are the hottest high fashion models out there right now.  Read More »
