1:30 am #multimedia session listening to @invisibleson “invisible podcast”. This is my favorite tattoo related show. A lot of great history and stories and points of view on the #tattooindustry you may or may not agree with but presented within the context of a group of seasoned tattooers. Great show….I should be going to sleep soon but I feel I’m going to get through one more episode before I call it a night. #art #tattoo #sketch #moleskin #magic #surreal #surrealart #surrealism #pinkvomit #pinknipplejuice #pink

Reposting a different shot of this #wip from a few weeks back. This ended up healing awesome and will finish up the background and detail the top of the skull in about 2 weeks. Pretty stoked on finishing it. #tattoo #tattoos #chicago #chicagoart #chicagotattoo #nativerituals #newschool #newschooltattoo #surreal #surrealart #tattooartmag #tatooafterlife #tattooawesomeness #bishoprotary #stencilstuff #allaprimaink

FINALLY a page which focus on my favorite genre of #tattooing NEW SCHOOL!!! (90s hip hop spelling…Nu Skhool). Give a follow to @worldofnewschool to check out some really amazing work from artists all over the world. I love New school because if you suck at drawing it will definitely show. Personal favs of mine on here to check out are @jimmylajnen and @victor_chil but there’s a lot of great stuff on here. #tattoo #tattoos #tattooart #newschool #newschooltattoo #art
