Some Belgian Ink in Manhattan

Back in September, I met a couple on the steps of Federal Hall in lower Manhattan. They were visiting from Belgium and, between them, had quite a few tattoos. Kenny and Ineke were kind enough to share their work.

First up is this shot of Ineke's head:


Ineke credited the patterns on her scalp to Erik El Santo (@erik_el_santo) at Dagger Moon Tattoo (@daggermoontattoo) in Hasselt, Belgium.

Kenny shared this amazing work on his chest:


The skull and cobra were done by Don Porto (@tattoodonporto), from Inkhouse in Geel, Belgium.

Thanks to Kenny and Ineke for sharing their amazing tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!

Blossoms on Blossom

At the beginning of October, I met Blossom on Broadway. This lovely tattoo on her foot caught my eye:


Blossom, who was visiting New York from England, was kind enough to pull her foot out of her shoe to let me fully appreciate her cherry blossoms,

She credited the work to Jay at Portsmouth Ink in Portsmouth, UK.

Thanks to Blossom for sharing her lovely foot tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!

Amber Shares Two Cool Tattoos

I met Amber a couple months back on Wall Street. Some of her stand-out work caught my eye, especially this super interesting piece:


Turns out, Amber is a make-up artist. Check out her Instagram @amberblanchardmua.

She credited her work to Ben Towers (@bentowers_tattoo) at Bella Arte Tattoo (@bellaartetattoo) in Fairfield, New Jersey.

Ben also did this piece on her upper arm, as well:


I love tattoos with tattoos! That takes an extra level of skill to pull off successfully.

Thanks to Amber for sharing her cool tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!

Rebekah Crossing the Bridge

I met Rebekah back in June at Bowling Green in lower Manhattan. I spotted this interesting tattoo on her arm and she was kind enough to share it with us:


Rebekah credits the super-talented Sue Jeiven (@sweetsuetattoo) from East River Tattoo (@eastrivertattoo) with the work here. Rebekah designed and sketched it and Sue "improved and put her artistic spin" on the drawing.

She told me that the piece depicts her and her partner on a bridge, which one crosses to "find your truer self." They are symbolically crossing the bridge together and he is sporting antlers because the deer is his spirit animal.

Thanks to Rebekah for sharing this cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!

Vanessa's Lion

About a month after seeing Ben's lion, I spotted another lion at the City Hall subway station:


This lion is on the side of the leg of Vanessa, in a spot where you don't normally see a tattoo.

She told me that this was tattooed by Oba (@omoori) at Push Tattoo Studio (@pushtattoos) in Wilmington, Delaware.

Vanessa explained that this was part of a set of matching tattoos she got with her best friend. As she tells it, the lion matched her friend's personality, and this leonine friend designed the art.

I asked Vanessa what her friend got. She explained that her nickname was Goldfish, so that's what her friend got to compliment her lion.

Thanks to Vanessa for sharing her cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!

Jess and Josh Share Some Ink

Back in June, I met a couple from Great Britain on the steps of Federal Hall in lower Manhattan.

There names were Jess and Josh, and they both were kind enough to share some of their tattoos with us.

Check out this really funky witch on Jess' arm:

 

Jess credited this to Marie Cox (@lady_fts) at Folklore Tattoo Studio (@fts_tattoo) in Tamworth, Staffordshire, which is near Birmingham, England.

John shared this piece on his leg:


This work was also done at Folklore, but by Adam McDermott (@admcde).

Thanks to Jess and Josh for sharing their tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!
