Justin Mariani's Realistic Tattoos

Tattoo // Friday, November 23, 2012
'I started tattooing in 2004, out of a shop in Hesperia, California.  In 2011 I started concentrating on realism, and determined that was what I preferred to do.  I enjoy doing anything realism, especially portraits and horror.  It gives me great pleasure to see something come to life on the skin.  Getting away from tattooing I also paint and use prisma colors....'

Thanksgiving Inspired Tattoo Flash

Tattoo // Thursday, November 22, 2012
Why bother with all that family, over-eating mumbo jumbo this holiday season when you can get drunk by yourself, drop by your local Chinese joint, then head on over to your buddy's house for some good old fashioned Turkey Leg tattooing?!  Then you can talk about it all year long until Thanksgiving falls upon us again... Sounds like my kind of party.

Last Rites Tattoo Theater

Tattoo // Wednesday, November 21, 2012
Last Rites Tattoo Theater is the project of tattoo and fine artist Paul Booth. Both his fine art and tattoo work are gruesome and freaky; exposed brains and festering eyeballs abound in his illustrations, and his tattoos often involve exposed musculature and slimy demon faces. Through his vividly-rendered illustrations and realistic black and gray tattoos, Booth certainly brings these nightmares to life.
