Let’s have some fun

Before I read comics in bed or turn into a wolf or whatever it that I do at night when I walk away from the computer, I want to wrap up the day with a couple of fun, light tattoos since it feels like everything I’ve posted today has been so serious. First, on the left, a hilarious tattoo by Josh Herrera of Skin Factory in Las Vegas. It’s a Zom-Bee. Get it? Zom-BEE!!! Hahaha. Love it. And to the right of that (and of course you can click’n'zoom ‘em both) Deryn’s super-cool Back To The Future themed 88 MPH tattoo with a flux capacitor symbol next to it to really give it geek cred, done by Charlie Coppolo. This makes me miss my Delorean. Wish I’d never sold that car (actually, I traded it for my 650HP supercharged ’74 Corvette, which had its charms as well).

OK, I can’t stop myself from squeezing in a “serious” tattoo as well because it’s just so striking. Here’s a big black piercer sleeve, halfway up the arm, completely engulfing the forearm. What I love about it is that it’s been capped off not by the normal straight lines, but instead has been graphically “faded” using nice bulky halftones, giving it a unique and modern appearance. Then the top half (I assume these are the same arm anyway!) was capped off with a maze-like piece of pixelated geometry that steps away from the swastika patterns and other sacred geometry that we’re so used to seeing in these types of pieces. This particular sleeve was tattooed by Yaroslav Gorbunov of Maruha Tattoo Studio in St. Petersburg, Russia.
