One of the greatest things about design is that people are constantly coming up with new and creative ways to solve problems, display information or convey a message in a better way. Paul Marcinkowski (AKA Kaplon) is the designer behind this tattoo infographic which he made for a class project at the Academy Of Fine Arts in Łódź, Poland. Readers know that I’m a fiend for good infographics, and while poorly made infographics have been called the ‘plague’ of the internet, it’s great to see an artist sink their teeth into the medium and create something truly original.
The infographic highlights different aspects of the tattoo process: where tattooing is practiced (worldwide), the percentage of people who have tattoos, interesting fun facts about the tattoo machine, most popular tattoo designs, and the top three reasons why people regret getting their tattoos. The artwork is brilliant and nails the style of tattoo art on the body while also integrating the tattoo style into infographic design.
Jeff Gogue is a tattoo artist and painter born in 1973, he’s working in Grants Hill, Colorado. He puts his stunning tattooing skills realizing large tattoos inspired by traditional japanese tattoo art and art nouveau’s classic imagery. His work is made of thick lines and realistic shadowing, all completed by a stunning use of colors.
Anyone who’s ever seen me in person knows I’m sparsely covered in tattoos. (My forearms are some of the few places on my upper body that are untouched), but my affinity for tatttoo’s gives me a respect for all different types. Tattoo designs seem to go thru phases, (remember when everyone HAD to have a japanese styled tattoo a few years ago?) but regardless of the fads, one style seems to remain constant. The original, bold, simple lined tattoos have been a staple of tattoo artists all over the world in all different cultures. That being said, after coming across a gallery of bold style tattoo examples, I knew I had to throw them up.
A while back, I had thrown up a post about the Mugler Mens Fall 2011 Campaign, and I was blown away by the creativity of their ads. However, I was a bit misinformed about what I was actually seeing. I was under the impression that the model in the photos was done up by make up artists to look the way he did for the pictures, but this isn’t the case. The model in the photos is a man named Rick Genest, who’s gone through EXTENSIVE tattoo sessions to get the appearance he’s obtained. After finding out about Mr. Genest’s amazing work, I found a few more shots of things he’s done for fashion magazines, and even a short video.
Chris Eckert (San Jose, California) the artist who created the Auto-Ink machine must be a very trusting guy. One of the first things someone said when we came across the pictures of this machine was “I don’t trust it.”, and it does look a bit odd. But after seeing the video below and reading about the basis of the machine, I did have a bit more ‘faith’.
Auto Ink is a three axis numerically controlled sculpture. Once the main switch is triggered, the operator is assigned a religion and it’s corresponding symbol is tattooed onto the person’s arm. The operator does not have control over the assigned symbol. It is assigned either randomly or through divine intervention, depending on your personal beliefs.
Luckily right now it’s set up with a pen, not a real tattoo gun.
Sam Bradley’s photos came to my attention late last night, and I’ve been somewhat stuck on them ever since. His unique style, and ability to chose some “interesting” subject matter (hot girls with tattoos) definitely have the ability to keep peoples attention. I don’t have too much personal information on this UK photographers, but from what I’ve seen so far, his work seems top notch. Check the method below.
So when you think of an arm gallery, people may be a bit confused. But Guy le Tatooer (yes, it’s exactly what you think) developed an entire gallery of false arms to show off his work. These are some photos from Guy le Tatooer’s tattoo arm exhibition at the Gimpel & Muller gallery in Paris. Guy says he created them using his arm and silicon. After, he used a traditional electric system to tattoo the arms. Guy also says he wanted to show tattoo with a real vision in a gallery.
So the internet has been a-buzz with searches for pictures of Gucci’s new tattoo, I’ve got it, but lets start from the beginning… Less than six months after his release from prison, Gucci Mane checked himself into a rehab facility for an addiction to cocaine. According to Ozone Magazine, members of the rapper’s entourage were involved in an hour-long stand-off against Gucci outside the Riverwoods Southern Regional Psychiatric Center in Riverdale, GA in October of last year. The group, which included his manager and lawyer, begged him to enter the facility for treatment, apparently interrupting a Narcotics Anonymous class that was taking place at the time of his arrival. After coaxing from his lawyer, who convinced the ‘So Wasted’ rapper that failing to get help for his drug addiction could land him right back behind bars, the 30-year-old turned himself in for 28-day treatment. The facility, which specializes in alcohol and substance abuse released Gucci Mane a few days ago, but it looks like they released him too soon. Check out the ice cream tattoo he got from Tenth Street Tattoo in Atlanta.
I display certain artists all the time on this blog, but this is one of the first distinct tattoo artists I’ve put up, and for good reason. I’m not really sure exactly how to decribe Ryan Masons style, he uses a lot of traditional elements, but mixes them up with more realistic images. Once in a while he may throw some some absurd or humorous elements in the mix (like glasses on a deer), but all of his work ends up being quite astounding. He works in Scapegoat Tattoo, Portland, Oregon, and if you frequent that area (Adrienne/Zoe) I highly suggest you check it out.
Never have I had one artist who’s had so much incredible work spread throughout such a deep portfolio that I’ve had to spread it over two different posts. The photographer known as ‘Dangerously Dolly’ is the first to wow me with such a multitude of different styles, models, concepts, and looks, and I’m sure you’ll feel the same way. Check out the different shooting styles below.
So as you can see, Dangerously Dolly has quite the portfolio filled with many different styles, and some super sick work. As I said before, I’m currently in Los Angeles “doin the damn thang” with some colleagues of mine until Monday, so stay tuned and I’ll pitch the second half of the post once I sober up.
About a month ago, I posted up some photos of some beautifully pierced ladies, and in the post I mentioned that I was much more of a tattoo person. So when I saw photographer Warwick Saint’s collection of tattooed girls, I was more that intrigued. From detailed half sleeves, all the way down to entire legs, all the women in the photos have incredible pieces on them that I’m sure took tons of time, and would inevitably catch eyes and make the artists who did them proud.
Not every woman like a guy with lots of tattoos, but I can assure you I’m deffinately a guy who likes women with lots of tattoos. While doing some research on a new piece I want to get during the fall, I came across tons of pics of females who love ink, I figured I’d put a few of my favorites up and see what you thought.
