Beautiful Badass Bee Tattoos

Bee-Tats (10)

Bees are flying insects known for their role in pollination and producing honey and beeswax, which have multiple food, health and various practical applications. The most known species of bee is the European honey bee. It’s known for its black and yellow colors and vicious stinger that detaches upon impact and leads to the bee’s death shortly thereafter. Most bee tattoo depictions feature the European honey bee. These bee tattoos show off why bees are featured in a lot of tattoo designs. We hope you enjoy this gallery whether you’re a bee enthusiast or not. And if you have any bee tattoos you’d like to show off, be sure to share them with us on Instagram. Read More »

Freakin’ Awesome Fish Tattoos

Fish-Tats (1)

Did you know that fish have been incredibly important to human survival since practically the dawn of time? A lot of ancient civilizations relied quite heavily on fish, which is a bit of a no-brainer when you consider how many settlements were built near water for water sources anyway. Fish still serve an important role in human survival today too. So we’re dedicating this tattoo gallery to fish – not just for the role they’ve played in human survival, but because they also just look so darn cool as centric subjects for tattoo designs. Got a fish tattoo you want to show off? Be sure to share it with us on Instagram and maybe your fish tattoo will wind up in a future gallery. Read More »

LGBT Pride Tattoos

LBGT22

We’d all like to believe the human race has evolved over the years. Not physically of course, that form of evolution takes thousands of years, but in a moral sense. In a large part, we have, but every so often tragic situations remind us that hate and persecution are still very much part of the human condition. Last Sunday, on June 12th, 2016, one of the worst hate crimes in US history since 9/11 occurred in Orlando, FL when a open fire in a gay nightclub, killing almost 50 people and seriously wounding 50 more. The thoughts and prayers of everyone here at TAM go out to the multitudes of families who affected by this horrific tragedy. We here at TAM believe in equality in all it’s forms, which is why we’re doing what we can and celebrating the LGBT community with this gallery. It isn’t much, but it’s what we do here and we hope you enjoy these tattoos too. Read More »

Gaming Tats in Honor of E3

E3-Tats-Gallery (8)

E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, is one of the largest video game conventions on the planet. It’s where video game publishers and accessory manufacturers advertise upcoming games and game-related merchandise. It’s currently going on as this is written, which is why we thought this is probably a great time to give you a video game centric tattoo gallery. The convention tends to be held in Los Angeles, California around the second or third week in June each year and proceeds to take over the entirety of games media as pundits and gaming fans dissect every little nugget of gaming information they can from each massive gaming company’s conference. Who will “win” E3 this year? We’ll let other gamers decide. We just hope you enjoy this gaming tattoo gallery alongside the E3 madness too. Read More »

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.

Surf’s Up! Check Out These Surfing Tattoos

Surfing-Tats (1)

Surfing has a deep history in ancient Polynesian culture that’s unfortunately unrecorded, leaving historians with no clues as to when it first began. What we do know is that British explorers first observed surfers while traveling through Tahiti in 1767. Surfing actually pre-dates Hawaiians and eastern Polynesians by over a thousand years. Professional surfing contests started in 1975 and, unlike many other sports, it began with its first professional female athlete during the same year. It has since been looked at as both a sport and a calming oceanic past time, and we’re celebrating it today with its own tattoo gallery. Read More »

Phenomenal Phoenix Tattoos

Phoenix-Tats (1)

The phoenix is a mythical bird from Greek and Roman mythology that lives for over a thousand years before it dies is a show of flames and is reborn from its own ashes. Symbolizing resurrection, the sun and various other popular ideals – many of which are focused in Christianity – the phoenix is one of the most popular mythological creatures ever depicted. Nowadays a lot of people like phoenixes more for their eye-catching artistic value than anything else. A fiery immortal bird can be quite a powerful image, which you’ll see in many of the tattoos featured in the gallery below. If you’d like to see more tattoo galleries featuring mythological creatures, be sure to check out our unicorn and dragon galleries too. Read More »

Magnificent Music Tattoos

For the LOVE of Food

Gary @gaza666

This is for the Father’s Out There!

@valortattoo

Father’s Day, an international holiday celebrating fatherhood and the influence of fathers in society, is coming up soon so we’re priming you with a tattoo gallery all about celebrating fathers. The holiday is held on the third Sunday of June and lands on June 19th this year. In the early months of 1908, Anna Jarvis promoted, organized and successfully ran the first Mother’s Day celebration in Grafton, West Virginia. Grace Golden Clayton, inspired by Anna Jarvis’ work, organized the first Father’s Day celebration on July 5th, 1908 in Fairmont, West Virginia. It doubly served as a celebration to honor the 250 fathers that had passed away during the Monongah Mining Disaster that occurred in December the previous year. The celebration continued to be held off-and-on for decades, coming close to being made an official national US holiday many times until President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers in 1966 – during which he designated the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. Six years later, Father’s Day was signed into law as a permanent national holiday by President Richard Nixon. Today it is celebrated around the world.   Read More »

R.I.P. – Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson

Kimbo1

Not long after the world lost Muhammad Ali, one of the greatest boxers to ever step foot into the ring, it lost one of the greatest MMA fighters to ever step into an octagon – Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson. Kimbo’s fighting career arguable began in 2003, when he began participating in unsanctioned mutual combat street fights that were distributed online via sites like SublimeDirectory and YouTube. In his first taped fight, he left a large cut on his opponent’s right eye, which led to fans calling him “Slice”. This combined with his childhood nickname “Kimbo” is what ultimately led to his fighter nickname “Kimbo Slice”. He gained popularity from taped street fights, receiving the title of “King of the Web Brawlers” by Rolling Stone, and ended up signing a professional contract with EliteXC in 2007. He fought for EliteXC until it closed its doors after declaring bankruptcy in 2008. Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, stated that Kimbo would have to earn his contract in the UFC by competing on The Ultimate Fighter – UFC’s reality TV competition. Kimbo took Dana White up on the offer and participated in The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights, and was the number one pick for coach Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. He ended up winning against Houston Alexander by unanimous decision during The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights finale. However, on May 8th, 2010, Kimbo lost in his first official heavyweight debut by TKO, after which Dana White said it was “probably Kimbo’s last fight in ... Read More »
