Old School…

Here’s a painting I completed a little while back.  The inspiration came from watching Marcus Kuhn’s web series “Gypsy Gentleman”  If you have yet to check it out, do so, you won’t regret it.

Kuhn does a great job explaining a piece of old sailor tattooing that is seemingly going to be forgotten to the depths of history.  As I have said previously, I have a huge love and appreciation for history, especially when it comes to tattooing and punk rock.

What’s cool about this post (from my perspective) is that I have progress shots to show you how I work (minus all of the sloppy paint dripping and cursing)… It is rare that I have several shots of a painting or project to show you how it goes.

Enough jibber-jabber, check ’em out!


Thanks for stopping by!
