I love this Madballs tattoo that Nicky B had done by BobbyT — an old BME friend that some of you may remember from back yard BBQs at the old Queen/Bathurst Toronto BME HQ — at Sleepy Hollow Tattoo in Welland, Ontario. Nicky got this done because he was a big fan of the toys as a kid — each of the Madballs toys came with an official painting (that reminds me a lot of Ed Roth “Rat Fink” hotrod art), and this is one of them.
Adding to the silly little tattoos I posted last night I want to include this pair of sweet fun foot-top pieces. On the left a minimal tattoo by Gábor Zagyvai (zagyvai.com), and on the right a great little cock by Lionel Fahy (lioneloutofstep.blogspot.fr) that he had the honor of doing on fellow tattoo artist Jimmy Toge of Radjah Skin Design in Bali, Indonesia.
Speaking of Lionel, I wanted to show you this joyful tattoo machine that Den Nis of El Hombre Invisible Tattoo Machines made in collaboration with him.
Oh and thinking of feet tattoos has reminded me to squeeze in one more that caught my eye, although it’s not as “funny” as the first two. This masterpiece was done for Maxime by Cammy Stewart of Metalurgey in Dundee. I especially like the way the red checkerboard travels onto his toes — a very nice touch assuming it heals well [Edit: Oops, Maxime just took the photo, it’s not his foot].
So normally a photo with this much photoshopping wouldn’t get posted, but we haven’t had nearly enough BMEBoys lately, so we’ll have to make due. Plus it’s Evil_Emil, which is always a plus.

I’m thinking the number of beers before this guy uses that as a pickup line is around two. This was uploaded by Joeltron, but the watermarking indicates that it was probably Howie that did this tattoo. In any case, someone at First Blood in Sydney gave this happy guy the pokeball he wanted, and gave us a new addition to the geek tattoo gallery.
Stuck on an ice floe with a freshly amputated leg is no way to go through life son. At least he had enough sense to put on his hat and scarf.

And here’s a closer look, however this photo was taken before the final touch-up session.
