Fantastical Alice in Wonderland Tattoos

Nick imms @littlenicktattoo

“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (which has been commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) was a novel written by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll back in 1865. It’s about a girl named Alice who falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world full of all sorts of odd and strange anthropomorphic creatures. The main point of the book is to toy with logic and real world reason, and even 150 years later it stands as one of the most popular examples of the literary nonsense genre. But that’s not what you probably know Alice in Wonderland from. The story was more popularly translated as an animated film for children by Disney in 1951, which plays host to a lot of the iconic imagery most people think of when someone brings up the story. A lot of the tattoos depicted below draw inspiration from the 50s film that many people grew up watching as children. That being said, there have been many adaptations and renditions of Alice in Wonderland. The most commonly referenced in recent memory, which should also be accredited for some of the tattoos featured in this gallery, is the live action film version of Alice in Wonderland that was directed by Tim Burton and starred Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter. In fact, earlier this year in 2016, the film’s sequel entitled Alice Through the ... Read More »

Artist Spotlight – Tony Sklepic

Tony Sklepic @tonysklepictattoo14

Tony Sklepic @tonysklepictattoo Tony Sklepic started tattooing in 2002 after he graduated high school and hasn’t stopped since. The realism that inspired him to become a tattoo artist in the first place, such as the work by artists like Nikko Hurtado and Paul Acker, is readily evident in the work you’ll see in his gallery featured below. In addition to being an avid tattoo enthusiast, Tony is also a self-proclaimed comic book, movie and music nerd who specializes in applying his full-color realism tattooing skills to large pop-culture influenced designs. Some of his biggest artistic influences outside of the tattoo world are comic book artists, like Jim Lee, Tony Moore and Ryan Ottley.

Statue of Liberty Tattoos

@erik_ez_campbell

The Statue of Liberty was built by Gustave Eiffel on October 28th, 1886. It was a gift to the United States from the people of France in honor of America’s Declaration of Independence – hence why the date of the declaration, July 4th, 1776, is inscribed on the tabula ansata in the statue’s left hand. Despite being trashed in just about every disaster and apocalypse movie known to man, the statue still stands as a universal symbol of freedom and hope – of principles the United States were founded upon. These are the same values echoed in the tattoo gallery below, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.   Read More »

Celebrating Transitions with Premium Tattoo Ideas

memorialtatto

A person’s tattoo is a representation of their personality, beliefs, and values. As people evolve and transition into a better version of their former selves, a suitable tattoo must be inked accordingly. In order to get a tattoo that is truly unique and states your individuality, let go of all the notions you’ve formed regarding body art. In order to get the right tattoo, lock into the inspiration that’s driving you through life. Whether you wish to mark an achievement, a major event in your life, or honor a close friend or family member, the sentimental value behind a tattoo is what makes it meaningful to you. There can be multiple things going on in your mind that may require careful consideration. Should you feel even the slightest hesitation in your decision, think again. Your commitment to this decision should come before everything else. While many things can be done if you aren’t as thrilled about a tattoo when you first get it, such as cover up tats or laser removal, one should never enter a studio with short-lived or questionable tattoo ideas. While some tattoos do represent current trends and fashion statements, from music to sports teams, you should think long and hard about what speaks and resonates with you because fashion and trends have a habit of dying out. Here are a few things you should take into consideration before locking in your decision to get a tattoo. Your Personality A lot of people often opt to get tattoos ... Read More »

About Patriots and Patriotic Tattoos

Patriot1

There isn’t a more powerful way to identify one’s love for their nation than with a patriotic tattoo. It’s a meaningful way for an individual to symbolize their devotion, national pride, and sense of patriotism towards their country. The main element of patriotic tattoos is usually a flag of the person’s country, or the flag colors, accompanied by a ferocious looking national animal. The Motivation behind Patriotic Tattoos Showing No-Nonsense Patriotism Some people who have undying love for their country of origin or residence often wish to express their devotion in a public manner. The statement that an individual with a patriotic tattoo communicates to the world is often that they will not bear it if others bad mouth about their country and its people. Appreciating the Country’s Saviors Another motivation behind patriotic tattoos, along with showing your devotion, is appreciating and respecting the men and women who put their lives on the line and sacrificed themselves for their homeland and its people. Those who wish to honor the memory of loved ones lost in war can get a patriotic tattoo to keep their memories alive and carry it around with them for the rest of their lives. Showing Support A patriotic tattoo doesn’t necessarily have to be a country’s flag. Showing support to a group or organization that works for the benefit of the country is also considered a patriotic tattoo. The logo can be tattooed to show your unquestionable support for the cause. It all depends on the ... Read More »
