Ray Caesar: Blessed

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 11, 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. It does seem that my work contains aspects of a story that unfolds and has a great deal to do with a process of intense psychotherapy and the years of dealing with dissociative identity disorder (a form of multiple personalities) and trauma I went through in childhood...'

Jessica by Aaron Nagel

Tattoo // Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Gorgeously painted portrait of Jessica Clark by the talented Aaron Nagel, a figurative oil painter living in Oakland CA.

Con Sangre

Tattoo // Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Tattoos hurt, there is no denying that. Body parts get shaved, ink is penetrated into the skin with mechanical needles and there is blood- sometimes a little and sometimes more than you would like to see. Here's some fresh ink done by Juan Manuel Sancho.

Making of The Tattooed Poster

Tattoo // Monday, July 09, 2012
The Chaos Crew tattoo studio is well known in Munich and far beyond its city limits. They developed a poster that impressively shows the bavarian tattoo artists’ skills: just as tattoo motives tell countless stories, they interwove the most important events of 2011 into one huge tattoo. History was tattooed onto calfskin to promote the art of tattooing in its most authentic form – on real skin.

In Malmö, Sweden, there lives a very skilled tattoo artist, by the name of Peter Lagergren. His portfolio ranges from traditional Japanese subjects to neo-traditional sailor/Americana pieces realized as full sleeves and full back pieces. I love the contemporary classic, nautical feel of his work...

Bone Bike: Ride er Die

Tattoo // Sunday, July 08, 2012
An incredibly intricate little handmade, homemade tattoo from artist, illustrator and tattooist Aminah Slor. I love the quality of the line in this, it really looks like an illustration was directly applied to the skin. Then again, I'm totally a sucker for the illustrated line. RiderDie.
