More fun tattoos (and a tool to do 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 (, and on the right a great little cock by Lionel Fahy ( 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].



There’s no questioning Sonja‘s talent when it comes to this style of tattoo.  As an artist she looks to other artists for inspiration, and will occasionally create a piece based off that inspiration.  This tattoo in particular was inspired by the works of Thomas Hooper.

Jekyll and Hyde

Presently her eye wandered to the other, and she was surprised to recognise in him a certain Mr. Hyde, who had once visited her master and for whom she had conceived a dislike. He had in his hand a heavy cane, with which he was trifling; but he answered never a word, and seemed to listen with an ill-contained impatience. And then all of a sudden he broke out in a great flame of anger, stamping with his foot, brandishing the cane, and carrying on (as the maid described it) like a madman. The old gentleman took a step back, with the air of one very much surprised and a trifle hurt; and at that Mr. Hyde broke out of all bounds and clubbed him to the earth. And next moment, with ape-like fury, he was trampling his victim under foot and hailing down a storm of blows, under which the bones were audibly shattered and the body jumped upon the roadway. At the horror of these sights and sounds, the maid fainted.

How do they work?!

Well, if the science behind magnets confuses you, Nilrem is here to help you explain just how these miracles work.

The magnets themselves are a couple of years old, but recently Nilrem went to visit Tom C from Broadway Tattoo Lounge in South Amboy, NJ to get the magnetic fields added.  What’s great is that instead of just getting black lines, he ended up getting blue UV ink.  And with UV ink comes the obligatory black light photo.

You can see how fresh they are by the little splashes of ink that haven’t been cleaned up yet.

So not only is he showing how magnets work, he’s also showing off even more sciencey goodness with the UV ink.
