Making Waves

We’re looking to change the game! You might be asking yourself, “what do they mean by change the game?”

We want to change the game by conducting these incredible studies and educating individuals, clients, customers, friends, family etc on the process and research this craft of tattooing needs in order to successfully go into the future. Take the featured image “The Great Wave” by Hokusai, for example, this is easily the most recognized piece of Japanese artwork on the planet.  More specifically titled “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” depicts a large wave headed for Kanagawa, Japan.  The imagery makes for an incredible tattoo that will stand the test of time. Why is this piece of art still so relevant in the art world and tattooing? Some would say it is easily readable by the eye, it is aesthetically pleasing, there are a hundred reasons this piece of art is so incredible.  But how we see it here at the tattoo shop, Hokusai did his research, he dedicated his life to his craft, he was a ukiyo-e (wood block) painter almost since birth.  He drew many waves, essentially conducting studies the mechanics of the wave and his work paid off. He was one of the most popular artists in Japan during his peak years because of his incredible work ethic and dedication.

With that being said, this is our life! Tattooing is everything and it reflects in our work. Tampa Florida has many great tattooers and has always been a hot area for the hits!
