Drawings Drawings Drawing!!! Its a part of every day life as a tattooer. But can we start to loosen up the ideas and specifications and start relying on the aesthetics of design fundamentals to bring tattooing to life!! What is the real goal here?!? We should want as tattooers, to generate intelligent aesthetics and flawless tattoo designs, there is a reason many of these tattoos have stood the test of time!! Whatever the case may be, I want to get a little more open minded to design beyond the references of popular culture that are usually brought to me. These references are valid, but I believe I can change some ideas that facilitate these pop culture tattoo designs into images that still convey the idea but also apply a readable product that is aesthetically pleasing.
Im really finally getting the opportunity to reflect on some of the things I am truly grateful for, we have been busy at the tattoo shop and for that and our excellent clients Im truly happy. Tampa has been keeping us busy proving awesome custom tattoos but sometimes its always nice to escape one reality and enter another. I traveled to Love Hate Social Club in Cork City, Ireland which was an amazing experience, I got to tattoo a lot of really amazing people during my time there. Love Hate Social Club was founded by Ami James of Miami Ink and Ross Nigel of All-Star Tattoo in Limerick City, Ireland. While I was in Ireland I had the pleasure of working with Damien Ross of Invisible NYC and Paul O’Rourke of Corazon Tattoos.
On a side note, I got to see Slayer on a random night, that was such a experience. I am happy I could provide a great service and put some really cool tattoos on some really cool people in Ireland.
I have included a few photos of an Ireland trip to Love Hate social club in Cork City, Ireland. Couldn’t have asked for a better trip the adventures are always enlightening experiences and inspire the soul, I’m always grateful to come back to what I have, its been a really busy summer. Im working to keep up the blog a little more here’s a bit to feed the machine !!
