Jon's Clipper Ship

Earlier this month, at the Summer Vibe Tattoo Festival on Long Island, I met Jon, who shared this great tattoo:


That's a depiction of the Cutty Sark, one of the most famous clipper ships. I was really taken by the colors the artist used. The blue, especially, really pops on this piece.

Jon credited Bobby Petraglia (@tat2bob) out of Skin Deep Tattoo (@skindeeptattoony) in Uniondale, with this fine naval tattoo.

Thanks to Jon for sharing this cool piece with us here on Tattoosday!

Katie's Spectacular Qilin

Earlier this month at the Summer Vibe Tattoo Show on Long Island, I met "Katie Kahboom," who had this back piece done simultaneously by two artists at once!


This Qilin, often called a Kirin, is a mythical Asian creature that is a mash-up of sorts, a chimera with dragon features and those of another, usually a hooved beast like a giraffe.

This was the combined work of JK (@jktattoony) and Andy Jung (@andyjungtattoo), who work out of World Famous Tattoo Art Gallery (@worldfamoustattooartgallery) in West Babylon, New York.

Thanks to Katie and her team of artists for sharing this amazing work with us here on Tattoosday!

Julia's Leg by Raul Wesche

Last weekend at the Summer Vibe Tattoo Festival on Long Island, I met Julia, who had just had her leg adorned the night before:


The artist behind this is Raul Wesche (@WescheTattoo). Check him out on Instagram, his work is quite incredible. He does wonders with dotwork and patterns. I enjoyed meeting him and leafing through his book at the convention.

Thanks to Julia and Raul for sharing their work with us here on Tattoosday!

Jeremy's Patriotic Hands

My friend Jeremy has a ton of tattoos and has contributed previously to Tattoosday. He recently got some incredible work done and it seemed appropriate to share it today, Independence Day:


Those are, by far, some of the best hand tattoos I have ever seen, and I've seen a few! The detail and color in both the American flag and the bald eagle are spectacular!

I had the pleasure of meeting the artist behind these hand tattoos last weekend at the Summer Vibe Tattoo and Arts Festival on Long Island last weekend.

The work is by Jon Ronzka (@jonronzka), out of Sink or Swim Tattoo (@sink_or_swim_tattoo) in Matthews, North Carolina, who was visiting Amity Irons Tattoo (@amityironstattoo) in Amityville, New York.

Thanks to Jeremy for sharing his hands with us! Happy Independence Day from Tattoosday!
