Happy Halloween, everyone! And to celebrate, we present to you this incredible headless horseman half sleeve from tattoo master Russ Abbott of Ink & Dagger in Atlanta, GA. If his amazing colorwork, eerie atmosphere and spooky story can't put you into the Halloween spirit, we don't know what can.

I have been drawn to Allison Sommers' work since the moment I laid eyes on it simply because I had never seen anything like it before. I still haven't. Nothing screams juxtaposition more than Allison's seamless blend of soft and disgusting.
