Joseph’s Flash Hands

Sourced from: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/UikrH/~3/yqAZtT5ZkkE/josephs-flash-hands.html

Back on Independence Day I posted a chest piece on Joseph (here) that I took a photo of last June on the Whitehall subway platform. I had been meaning to post Joseph’s hands, as well, so here they are:

The pocket watch, swallows and bell were all tattooed by Matt Huff (@matthufftattoo) at Brooklyn Ink (@originalbrooklynink) in Bay Ridge. Joseph told me the work is based on the flash of the legendary Dan Higgs.

Thanks to Joseph for sharing his ink with us here on Tattoosday!

Ryota’s Neck Tattoo

Sourced from: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/UikrH/~3/ALfnypXcVNI/ryotas-neck-tattoo.html

At the end of last summer, in Bowling Green, I met Ryota (@steeal_by_sicks), who told me he was a fashion designer/artist visiting the U.S. from Kyoto, Japan. We had some difficulty communicating, but he shared this neck tattoo he designed, which incorporates what he called “life symbols.”

Thanks to Ryota for sharing this cool tattoo with us on Tattoosday!

The Best Starship Enterprise Knuckle Tattoo

Sourced from: http://www.geekytattoos.com/the-best-starship-enterprise-knuckle-tattoo/

I know, it’s been a long time since our last post. I’m still alive, still getting all sorts of submissions. Some day we’ll get through our backlog of awesome nerdy tattoos. But this one came in the other day and I just had to post it, you know since the new Star Trek movie, “Into Darkness” just came out.

The tattoo belongs to Jason Criss who writes:

It took me a while to figure out what kind of Star Trek tattoo I wanted to get. I finally decided that the enterprise d on my knuckles was the best choice for me. It’s still a work in progress there will be more shading and colors after the initial outline heals. let me know what you think of them so far.

That’s right, boldly going where no knuckle tattoo has gone before.

So it Goes #96, 97, 98

Sourced from: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/ContrariwiseLiteraryTattoos/~3/x0i8-ElS_wQ/

This belongs to Alaina.

This is my first tattoo. I actually waited until I was 30 to get it, and I am glad that I did. I love Slaughterhouse-Five, and use this quote as a constant reminder not to dwell on things that I cannot control. As a teacher, it has started more than one conversation with students that didn’t necessarily trust authority figures and wanted someone that could relate to them, however small a degree.

This was posted as a part of “So it Goes” Saturdays. The phrase “so it goes” appears in Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five 106 times. Can you help me collect 106 “so it goes” tattoos? 95 down, 11 to go.

The post So it Goes #96, 97, 98 appeared first on Contrariwise: Literary Tattoos – The original literary tattoo blog! Over 600 tattoos from books, poetry, music, and other sources..

Vita Shares Some Ink from Russia!

Sourced from: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/UikrH/~3/z6QhF4XepW8/vita-shares-some-ink-from-russia.html

Catching up on some old material, these tattoos are from Vita, a Russian woman from St. Petersburg, who I met on the steps of Federal Hall in September of 2017.
Vita is a huge fan of The X-Files, and showed it proudly on her arm:

She credited the work to Dasha Kudri at No Name Tattoo Shop in St. Petersburg.

The following tattoo is dedicated to Vita’s parents, who used to take a specific tram to visit one another in different cities:

She added that the Maneki-neko cat below the tram was “just for fun.”

Vita also revealed this lovely tattoo on her ribs:

She explained that there was a big tattoo project being done to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund, with designs contributed by numerous artists. She said people would sign up and pick their favorite design and then winners were selected. All proceeds went to the WWF. This hand, with the word “SAVE” and a muskrat on the palm was inked by Andrey Kichaty (@kichatiy).

Thanks to Vita for sharing her tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!

Tattoosday Walks Into a Bar: Southern Prohibition Brewing

Sourced from: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/UikrH/~3/J-kvDnlIAZU/tattoosday-walks-into-bar-southern.html

On a trip to Hattiesburg, Mississippi, back in November, I popped into Southern Prohibition Brewing Company (@soprobrewco) for some local brews.
While enjoying the cool venue and tasty beverages, I started talking to bartender Liz about her tattoos. She was kind enough to share this one, a tribute to David Bowie (@davidbowie)

This lightning bolt is a nod to this iconic image:

If you ever find yourself in Hattiesburg, I recommend popping in to the tap room, which always has a healthy selection of locally-crafted beer.

I enjoyed a flight of the Sea Lord, the Maenad, the DDH Paradise Lost and the Betty:

Thanks to Liz and Southern Prohibition Brewing for sharing the tattoos and beer!
