I’m not sure why this tattoo made me think of the cartoon “Nellie the Elephant”, but now I really want some currant buns.
We have featured quite a lot of work from Annie Frenzel in the past. I try to be as diverse as I can with what I post, but every time Annie posts another tattoo I find myself getting super excited and wanting to share it with you all. Make sure you follow her on Facebook and Instagram, or check out some of her older work on her blog.
Whenever you go to a big convention you always discover at least a few great tattooers you were previously unaware of. One of the artists that impressed me most at the Brighton Tattoo Convention last weekend was Irish tattooer Joseph Deegan, from Gnosis Tattoo in Dublin.
I’m actually a little embarrassed that Mr Deegan wasn’t on my radar before, his work is exactly the kind of thing I love; dark, bold, and super, super clean. Here’s a load of his work to make up for lost time.
Words simply cannot express how great this is. I challenge anyone to think of a greater animated movie franchise that Toy Story. The more I think about it, the more I realise that it’s basically a bromance between an egotistical cowboy and a delusional astronaut.
Nick Baldwin really knocked this one out of the park, I just wish I’d thought of it first!
This is the second in a series of short documentaries from Lima Charlie, featuring tattooers talking about their life and their work. This one features Mr Simon Erl, formerly of Jayne Doe in Essex, currently on the road.
If you would like some work from Simon, I suggest following him on instagram (@simonerl), or on tumblr, to see where he is and what he’s up to. He has an online store as well where you can buy prints and t-shirts kitchenwizards.bigcartel.com
