Party The Baby Off


Good afternoon, ModBloggers! Hoo boy, summer took a while, but now it has arrived with all of its trademark scrotum-droopening hellishness. Hooray. In honor of this terrible inferno, here is a pretty fantastic sleeve based on the myth of Icarus, one of the all-time great stories about what a dumb asshole the sun can be. I’ll fly as close to you as I damn-well please, you intergalactic bully. More shots, after the jump.

(Tattoo by Frank La Natra at Eternal Ink in Davie, Florida.)

Tattoo Hollywood, BME’s first tattoo convention, is coming to Los Angeles from August 21-23, featuring contests, prizes and some of the best artists from around the world! Click here for more information.

  1. The piece itself looks great, I really like it. However, looking at Daedalus up at the top, all I can envision is him bellowing “TONIGHT WE DINE IN HELL!”

  2. I love the way this tattoo is done! Especially the heavy lines. It looks great :-)

  3. The colours and the tattoo itself look amazing but I couldn’t help but notice Icarus looks abit like the guy from 300. THIS IS SPARTA

  4. Ward- i beliee the white arrow is actually the tower in the labarynth that they jumped out of

  5. the white arrow is a tower, we’re finishing it in december, we still have to finish Daedalus’s wings, banners, and the tower. AND ITS NOT LEONIDAS, lmao, we decided to give him a beard so you could distinguish between father and son (on the forearm)

  6. The full text is “I will touch the sun or I will die trying”, it’s from The Melting Point of Wax by Thrice
