This organic flower pod design by Philip Milic (pmtattoos.com) out of Oakland, CA has got to be one of the nicest tattoos I’ve seen in a long time, and the kicker is, if you go to his page and browse through his work, it’s all this nice… Really amazing stuff.

This beautifully executed and I suspect quite tricky triple daith placement was done by Rion, a piercer of 17 years, who works at Deep Roots Tattoo in Seattle, Washington. I believe this may actually be the first triple daith I’ve ever seen, come to think of it!
Check out these amazing snowflake scars by Ryan (see his scar-specific site) from Precision Body Arts in Nashua, NH. After the break there are some photos of pieces he’s just added to this skin removal leg sleeve, as well as another example of a fresh and healed piece he did.

This great tattoo by Johnny Thief (check out the interview) won “Best of Day” in the Savannah HD Haunted Coast Run tattoo contest.
You might have noticed in the John Joyce interview, that near the bottom there’s a shot of him doing a hip/rib cutting (at Scar Wars III). It’s on Gogo_Savvy, and the healing has been amazing, with pronounced and even keloiding… Check it out!
Since everyone seemed to like the last Giger sleeve I posted, I wanted to add Bosko’s biomech bodysuit, largely inspired by Giger pieces — he’s 49, and the fomer CEO of a top firm in Serbia. The tattoos were done over two and a half years by Boban at Bomba Tattoo in Novi Sad, Serbia. The tattoos were done with Talens India Ink instead of regular tattoo ink because Bosko developed an allergy, which eliminated their ability to do standard graywash shading in the piece.
Full photos continue after the break. On his back is a large Giger baby with machine gun arms based on an exhibition photo, on his right side is Giger’s Samurai painting, and a biomech girl on the right, and his belling is based on Giger’s Landscape XVIII.
Ron Garza, John Durante, and Chris Glunt have been exploring the world, and recently found themselves at San Marcos on Lake Atitaln in Guatemala — $10 a night accommodations — and after doing some 50ft cliff dives, already high on adrenaline, Chris suspended with two 6ga hooks and rigging tied to a boulder. Looks like an amazing experience — continue reading for more photos, and add their pages to your reading list to follow their adventures of course.
And some random travel photos as well… What’s stopping you from being in pictures like these?
The opposite of the previous entry I think… Ivers’ great HR Giger inspired sleeve was done by Jannicke Wiese-Hansen at Let’s Buzz! Tattoo & Piercing in Bergen, Norway. Continue reading for more photos.
Chris at Native Rituals in Hattingen, Germany sent in these beautiful photos from a play piercing-themed promo shoot they did for the studio recently. More pictures continue after the break. The models are Cindy, Nika, and Miss Cheyenne, and the photos are by T. Burggraf, and Chris did the piercing.
This stunning red and black dotwork tattoo was done by Dan DiMattia of Calypso Tattoo in Liege, Belgium — the red really puts it over the top.
