Featured Tattoo: Human evolution tattoo

Tattoos showing human evolution through ages are not new to us, but this one is bit different from the rest. In this tattoo, humans have been shown evolving in a circular form and the middle of the tattoo shows a figure that seems to be somewhat inspired from the Vitruvian Man art. Maybe this guy wants to remind everyone out there that how they have evolved into human beings.

Tatoo Tattoo: Physics Tattoo

Some tattoos are sexy, and some are just flat out creepy—but I’m not sure what to think about the Born Oppenheimer Approximation, 3-D Schroedinger Equation and Schroendinger Equation’s solution tattooed on this dude’s back.

Featured Tattoo: A Zip Tattoo That Hides Your Scars!

Scars are an ugly blot on the skin and sometimes it makes you feel uncomfortable. Tattooing over scars is not a new thing to us at the left is an outstanding example of the same. This Zip tattoo looks to be one of the coolest ways to hide a scar that you hate to look at. The tattoo is in the form of a zip that’s half open and it appears that you can zip it up or down to hide or reveal the scar.

Featured Tattoo: Ms Pac Tattoo

Sometimes, a tattoo provokes an entirely different emotion, a confusing emotion: a reaction of “is that cool? Or is that awful?” Can a tattoo be both cool and awful at the same time?

Is this awesome? Or is this horrible?  I can’t decide.

I love Pac Man. The execution is great – Ms. Pac is appropriately pixelated, and even the cherries bear just the right amount of white-pixel shine to make them look like they came straight out of 1983.

But around the hairline? She shaved her head for this. Readers, I am at a loss. I love Pac Man, I love tattoos, the art is great, but the execution, or the placement…I don’t know.  I’d love more information about this tattoo, too – I’d love to see how it looks healed and who the artist is so I can properly credit this.

Kat Von D’s High Voltage Life Translates Into Her Tattoos And Her New Book

Writing Kat Von D off as being a byproduct of reality TV would be a complete insult. Certainly she became a household name through Miami Ink, and later, her own spin-off L.A. Ink, but what’s kept her such a fascinating part of the public eye is both her realism and her undeniable skill.

Just one look at any of her ink-on-skin creations, and you know she’s earned her spotlight.Which is why it seems so surreal that High Voltage Tattoo, located at the corner of LaBrea and Fountain in West Hollywood, is such an easily accessible spot. Granted, getting in with Von D means putting your name on an endless waiting list, but High Voltage invites walk-ins just like any other tattoo shop. It feels like a place where you’re welcome, no matter if you’re Joe Blow from down the street or a Hollywood A-list star.

So it would make sense that Von D would translate that feeling to her recently released book, also called High Voltage Tattoo. Though she claims it’s not a memoir, it’s so infused with Von D’s personal appreciation of tattoo artistry that it feels like you’re getting an insight into her life – which you kind of are, considering it starts with her influences since childhood.

That, and the book’s overall aesthetic is that of a well-worn journal. Sure, you’re not getting all the nitty gritty details, but there are enough of them that you feel compelled to continue to read on and learn how Von D turned a passion for art into a tattooing business.

But the best part is really getting a peek behind the curtain of what tattooing is all about for a professional. Von D doesn’t just take you through the show and her shop, she discusses the process, pigments and tools, and shares insights on what really goes into creating some of the more intricate and amazing pieces she’s worked on. Plus, you get an insider look at some of the stories of celebs that she’s inked.

Through each aspect of Von D’s empire, it’s clear: there’s no pretention. This is someone who’s committed to the artistry of tattooing – truly, madly, deeply.
