Halloween/Day of the Dead Gallery

October 27th, 2009
I love this time of year; brisk mornings, falling leaves and shorter days set the perfect stage for Halloween and Dia de los Muertos. Both holidays invoke images of skulls and colorful characters both friendly and foul. Avid fans of the spooky celebrations and their icons even go as far as getting permanently tattooed with their images. Want to see some of the coolest creepy tattoos ever? Check out this gallery. 42 photos of popular horror film icons, bloody murder scenes, sugar skulls, jack-o-lanterns, and lots more. Enjoy!

Benjamin’s Amazing Viking-Geisha Sleeve by Tim Kern

October 26th, 2009

Please join me as I extend a metaphor.

I approach inkblogging as if I were one of those guys that goes out on the beach with a metal detector.

You find a lot of interesting stuff and, every once in a while, you find treasure.

Earlier this month, I saw a man in front of Madison Square Garden walking south. I was headed in the opposite direction and, despite my general reluctance to post sleeves here (I wonder if I can even do them justice), I stopped and asked him to show me the amazing work on his right arm.

I should also preface this by acknowledging how awesome it is to randomly find work by a tattoo artist who is at the top of his game, and is a recognized talent in the tattoo community.

Benjamin, the guy I stopped, was visiting New York from Denmark to see his artist, Tim Kern at Tribulation Tattoo. He was in town to begin work on a new sleeve. Benjamin happily shared his first sleeve:

Benjamin summarized the theme of his arm by stating that life is about choices. The two extrmes are, you can take a life, as represented by the Viking warrior at the top of the shoulder:

This is juxtaposed by the geisha who is taking her own life through ritual suicide:

The detail of the blood-spattered hand holding the seppuku blade is fascinating in its stark grisliness:

The sleeve also includes stunning waterfall and pagoda elements on the inside of the arm:

I especially appreciate the beauty and shading of the pagoda:

The color and artistry of this entire sleeve are astonishing and we are honored that Benjamin consented to contributing this work to Tattoosday.

We thank him and the artist Tim Kern for their work!
