After graduation, she worked as a character designer and illustrator on several animation projects for the film industry.

Tattoo // Wednesday, August 08, 2012
Being a product of The Simpsons generation, there have been numerous times (not really) when I have considered getting an actual permanent reminder how much I love and cherish that yellow cartoon family, my second family... but I'll leave it to those brave souls that actually did to show off their Simpsons ink in our selection of our favorite Simpsons tattoos of the moment.

Mike Shea Tattoos

Tattoo // Wednesday, August 08, 2012
Mike Shea currently works and co-owns Redemption Tattoo in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I enjoy his use of black and grey with color, as well as when he blends semi realistic and traditional styles. His paintings are also worth a second look. You can check out more of his work on his myspace, website, and blog...

The Skull and Sword's Lango

Tattoo // Tuesday, August 07, 2012
Without exaggeration, the sheer amount of talent currently at work in San Francisco's Skull and Sword Tattoo Studio is nothing less than mind-blowing. Case in point: tattoo artist Lango Oliveira. His insane attention to detail and superb technical control is truly breathtaking, producing works of art that are strikingly beautiful and totally bad-ass.

Joel Madberg is a tattoo artist working at Salvation Tattoo in Stockholm, Sweden. Madberg's vivid and somewhat cryptically symbolic style employs the bold lines, heavy shading, and muted color palette of traditional tattooing, although he is currently experimenting with his stylistic approach and shifting towards applying more color to his work.
