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! We are here to set ourselves apart to our clients because were here to win, make amazing, elegant, thoughtful tattoos and provide the best service possible.

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!!!!
