Florida tattooing

Florida year around is a beautiful place but especially during the summer. Its hot out and everybody is on the BBQ and beach scene. But most importantly its a great time for tattoos. There are plenty of visitors and tourists that come to Florida looking for a good time. What better way to commemorate your visit to Florida than a super tough tattoo?

Tampa tattoo shop

It is always interesting to meet the new faces and to see the new people that come to our tattoo shop tucked away in Historic Ybor City.  Tampa has a rich history of tattoos and culture as well as many great artists in one area but we feel like there is some magic in this shop. People from all over Tampa, Florida, the United States and the world have walked through these doors. It is always interesting to hear how people found the shop, sometimes its as easy as searching “tattoo shop near me” or driving by, some others have literally been on the journey, seeing a sticker in town and matching the image to its originator.  All of it is a testament to the quality product we put out here everyday (If you haven’t checked out one of our galleries feel free to do so). In some ways its like going on a quest we are off the main path but still very visible, the two cobras on the wall are your proverbial “X marks the spot”.

The Quest for the treasure chest is important sometimes because it brings a sense of value and meaning in a world where instant gratification reigns supreme. As the saying goes you have to trust the process. We all want something now or not have to leave our homes because we can just go on the internet and order our groceries and clothes and have it shipped to our house in a day.  However, groceries get eaten or go bad, clothes go out of style, but tattoos should be built to last. So is it reasonable for an individual to find the instant tattoo close by or do the research? We are happy that a lot if not all of our clients come with awesome tattoo ideas and tattoo reference to give us an idea of what they are thinking and what they like so we can create a bullet proof custom tattoo for them.  We appreciate all the ideas and research so much because it shows us that our clients want a quality product and care about tattoos built to last.

We explain the process throughly and are prepared to answer any and all questions that may arise to establish a trustworthy relationship between client and tattooer. We feel this is one of the most important steps on the quest. It allows us to increase our knowledge, study and put a lot of research into a tattoo for our client.  This is not just limited to the big pieces, our walk-in’s and appointments that want smaller work get the same level of detail and attention to their tattoos.  It is important that every tattoo that comes through Tabernacle Tattoo is treated with a great deal of care and hard work.  With the principles we truly feel we can set ourselves apart from the pack and offer our clients the best level of tattooing possible.

As always thank you for reading our blog hopefully this gives you some insight at the process. If you have any questions or want to discuss ideas for your next tattoo, please feel free to stop by the shop or reach out to our contact us page we would love to talk to you!!!!

Black and Grey Tattoos

It seems that pop culture is influencing the world of tattooing in a series of new directions.  There will always be the traditional tattoos that stand the test of time however, new cultural norms always pop up and create new fun ideas for the artists.  We pride ourselves in researching and studying the designs and the potential anatomical movements of these new school tattoos. Newer designs such as dot work and geometrical patterns are in high demand and as a high end tattoo shop it is our duty to be able to provide a readable innovative tattoo for the client.

Attached is an innovative design based on the geometric tattoo concepts in conjunction with Nordic ideologies.  This black and grey tattoo was a ton of fun to study and put together for the client.  The geometric patterns in this tattoo hold strong weight and are built to last along with the Nordic influence.  Tattoos like this allow us to step out of our comfort zone and grow as tattooers.  Custom tattoos in 2018 are going to require heavy doses of research and studies because this is all relatively new conceptually in the grand scheme of tattooing.  Japanese and American traditional tattoos to name a few styles have been around much longer and the studies have been performed time and time again. Physiological integrity is essential to these tattoos which is why we are looking to achieve the same effect for the geometrical and dot patterns that are so in demand in this day and age.

Ireland adventure at love hate social club

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 !!

Thank you for reading my post feel free to comment and most of all come by and check out the shop!!!!
