Gangster Portraiture Tattoo

This great gangster backpiece (although I don’t recognize the little gangsters on his right shoulder) was done by Danny Pina at Dirty Pirate Studios in Los Angeles — check his site for his touring schedule if you’re interested.

  1. Taking a stab in the dark, I’m guessing the ‘little gangsters’ on his shoulder are his kids?

    (I’m not sure but I got the feeling you were trying to make a pun with that? And I missed it? Or were you genuinely musing that they may be legitemate historical gangsters? I’m confused…)

  2. I don’t usually like photo-realistic tattoos, but those are really nice. The cloth around Robert DeNiro’s arm in the upper right looks great (that’s hard enough to get right on paper, let alone skin), and the one of Joe Pesci looks incredible, too. Actually, they all look better than any other photo-based tattoos I’ve ever seen.

  3. He’s missing Al Pacino, but he has Marlon Brando twice? In the same tuxedo?? Man, I dunno about that.

  4. Al pacino is on his bak he is in the bottom right corner in the top hat i dont get c y he got two vito corleone’s he should of put tony soprano or if he was goin for a godfather piece he should of went with a pic of sunny but then again u have pesci is that a pic from casino or was goodfellas it looks like casino. tattoo is good but stupid for havin 2 vito’s that look exactly alike

  5. Are pple dumb al pacino is in the bottom right corner in the top hat. the tattoo piece is good but stupid for havin two vito’s in the same tuxedo he should of put james cann (sunny corleone) instead. is that pesci tatt from casino or goodfellas it looks like its from casino

  6. OMG i’m in love! I have seen some tats in my time but that one combines all my favorite movie characters in one space.

    You’re a legend!
