I wanted to have some fun today and just discuss the hits. This is a classic image of a Dragon done here at Tabernacle Tattoo. This was a fun one and now you can see the process in a time laps. We study the materials and put in the work to make a proper tattoo here at the shop. Theres only one way to generate consistent material as long as we have and that is to study and put in the work to make it HOT!!! As classic and fun as this image is, we are not limited to Japanese tattoos we offer an extremely wide variety of tattoo styles and concepts for our clients. This study is part of the usual process that goes into each and every custom tattoo here at the tattoo shop. The finer details and tricks are extremely important to a quality final product which is both beneficial to the client and the tattooer. Come by the shop and check out the magic, you know where to find us in the heart of Historic Ybor City in Tampa Florida.

We have been hitting the circuit hard recently our travels have reunited us with old friends and introduced us to some new ones as well. Traveling to conventions is always fun and full of neat experiences. On our travels to the Villain ArtsPhiladelphiatattoo convention, the weekend of February 9th 2018, the Philadelphia Eagles had just won the Super Bowl and the city was a giant party. There were so many people in town for the Championship parade which only added to the experiences at the convention and added quite a bit of diversity to the mix, which allowed us to educate people new to tattooing on our process and studies. Many individuals at the convention were looking for Japanese and traditional tattoos which was really cool because we could talk about the classic imagery that has made tattooing last for centuries. As with many tattoo conventions many people come through with new ideas and concepts which gave us the opportunity to learn about the newest trends in tattooing. This reinforces concepts in previous blogs, the world of custom tattooing is a forever evolving field and this tattoo convention gave us the opportunity to reach out to a new as well as experienced audience. Our tattoo adventure culminated in Philadelphia, but our journey included a few stops to visit with some great tattooers and friends.
We started our travels from Ybor city, FL and our first stop was to see our good friend Glen Collins of Broken Lantern tattoo in Charleston, SC. Charleston is a beautiful town that always treats us well. Next we stopped in to see a former coworker and now owner of Salt Water Tattoo in Virginia Beach, Mike Rickards. We used to work together at Ancient Arts Tattoo owned by J.D. Crowe. Finally, we met up with the illusive Mike Sikes of Eye Speak in Fairfax, VA to catch up for a little bit before heading into Philadelphia and our final destination.

Dragons, Dragons, Dragons! I love Dragons. Traditionally they are associated with bodies of water; ponds, lakes, rivers etc.. So Water Spirits or Gods, if you will. They have also been known to bring good luck and are seen as being very the very wisest of creatures. The tattoo shown here is of a Traditional Japanese Dragon being depicted with cherry blossoms and a bit of smoke with fire. A very colorful piece I did down the side of a female client. Again I am very thankful for the time and dedication it took to create this piece. It’s what we are about!
