Tattoo Ideas

We want to start of by thanking all of our clients, friends, families and everyone in between for bringing in the best tattoo ideas and reference for us to explore and research.  It has been such an adventure and pleasure to serve Tampa, FL and beyond. We are also lucky to be located near a major port which allows us to work with clients from all over the world. The diversity of these clients allows us to see some really amazing things in regards to tattooing.  Tattoo reference is so important to our process here at Tabernacle Tattoo, it helps us see where the client’s thought process is while we are creating the best custom tattoo that matches our client’s ideas and that reads well on their anatomy.

Your ideas for tattoos facilitate this shop and our ability to do cool tattoos, and for that Thank you!

Please feel free to contact us regarding your next tattoo or any other ideas you may have we are always happy to talk to you here at Tabernacle tattoo.

Recent Adventures

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 Arts Philadelphia tattoo 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.

Thank you for reading our post and please feel free to say Hi on the contacts page     if you have any questions or would like to discuss your next tattoo

Chrysanthemum Tattoo Study

The Chrysanthemums are native to Asia and Northeastern Europe and come in a variety of colors. This is a water color painting that I have created to show an example of how those colors can come together to create depth within a flower tattoo. Definitely a great concept and study if you’re into Asian culture and designs.
