In the words of the great Nigel Tufnel, “Well, it’s one louder, isn’t it?”
Judging by the amount of artillery this guy is packing, it’s pretty obvious Michael Kozlenko intended him to go to eleven.
And here’s a look at the sides of this piece:

No this isn’t an AC/DC tribute tattoo, it’s a big dose of blackwork from Kipod Tattoo in Tel Aviv. This work in particular was done by resident artist, George Samborsky.
This piece by Grisha Maslov shows just how awesome abstract tattoos can be when you think outside the box.

I really like what Nick Kelley has done with this backpiece. The cutaway to the spine gives the impression that the vines started growing from within, and have burst outward, pulling the flesh back with them. This back in particular belongs to Nixiie.

When Jason Stephan’s wife asked him to tattoo her back, it was the first time he’d ever been able to complete a piece of this size on blank skin. The couple came up with the design together, and the result is fantastic. Here’s what Jason’s wife had to say about the design:
This piece is the culmination of feelings about many of the issues of today. Some of these issues have come up in the past, most notably in George Orwell’s book “1984″ and so this tattoo could be described as a creative visualization of that novel. The lamb/ human figures are representative of all things that are good and innocent about mankind: curiosity, naivete, kindness, tolerance, etc. The robot is symbolic of all of the forces that corrupt those “good things.” The corrupting forces could be technology, government, greed, etc. On the robot’s screen is a face reminiscent on “Big Brother” in Orwell

This is a backpiece! A Chad Koeplinger backpiece. Enough to make most men bow down at the majesty of this piece. Calamityspills should be very proud of his back.
Well, with all the hoopla surrounding a small group of Christians who think the Big J is coming back tomorrow to take away the good ones and leave the rest of us scoundrels here to face the apocalypse, I felt it only fitting to go with a religious theme today.
Even though I am by no means a Christian, I have a long standing affinity for angels, I think watching The Prophecy a few dozen times too often may have led to this. This particular angel backpiece was done by Matt Kramer of Mind’s Eye Tattoo in Emmaus, Pa.
The thing I like most about this piece sent in by Cyber Tattoo Israel, is that it only covers half of the back. With the vast majority of upper back pieces being symmetrical, a little asymmetry is nice.
