Blessed by Ray Caesar

Tattoo // Tuesday, July 10, 2012
'I don’t really approach my work with a preconceived message but I do find a continuation of a process that unfolds that surprises even me after I finish the work.

Con Sangre

Tattoo // Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Tattoo // Friday, July 06, 2012
Artist Sarah McNeil says she likes drawing, cooking, and exploring nature. We like her illustrated portrait of this tattooed babe. Wolves, birds, and flowers are some of the subjects that make up this girl's ink work and we'd like to see more of this pretty, nature-y goodness in real life.

Tattoo // Friday, July 06, 2012
'Born and raised in Southern California's San Fernando Valley, I recieved my first tattoo when I was 16 years old. That event opened the window to a whole new world for me.
