I’m not sure which I love more.  Lucille ball, or this half portrait of her.  Tyler Turnbull has really captured the elegance of one of the world’s finest comedians.

Tyler works out of Rose and Anchor Tattoo in Katy, TX.

Gentle Giant

A tragic figure in both literature in film, Frankenstein’s monster has been adapted into pretty much every medium known to man.  This isn’t the first tattoo of the monster we’ve seen on ModBlog and it probably won’t be the last.  Jay Wheeler’s portrait of Karloff in his make-up really captures both sides to the monster, his intelligent and peaceful demeanor, and his capacity for intense emotion borne from the abuses he suffers at the hands of those who fear him.

I never drink… wine

While it may not stick to Bram Stoker’s novel completely, the 1931 film Dracula has probably influenced more portrayals of the count than the novel ever has.  Of course the reason for this is Bela Lugosi’s portrayal of the count.  His widow’s peak, high collared cloak, and broken english, all gave birth to the icon we know and love.  Plus, he never sparkled.

Thanks to Roger from Star City Tattoo for this recreation of this iconic image.
