I really want to recommend the Tattoo Age series on Vice. The truth is, I ignored it last year because two of my favorite tattoo sites announced when new installments appeared, so I didn't want to seem to be copying them. This mindset was a bit of a disservice to any readers who did not frequent those other sites as well.
I just watched the first installment of the second featured artists this season on Tattoo Age, and it's just so well-done, I can't say enough.
The featured artist is the Japanese tattooist Mutsuo, who works out of Three Tides Tattoo in Osaka, Japan.
Do yourself a favor and watch:

Welcome to another installment of the Tattooed Poets Project!
This will be our sixth April celebrating National Poetry Month with a month full of tattooed poets’ work – both written and corporeal. Every day this month at 3:00 AM EDT, we will post a tattoo (or two) belonging to a poet, along with a sample of their work. Because interest has been unprecedented this
year, most days we will post TWO poets, with the second one appearing at 3:00 PM EDT. If you are a published poet interested in contributing, we will be featuring additional tattooed poets weekly, starting in May, or you can volunteer now for 2015. Please email email@example.com for details. And please, everyone, enjoy April on Tattoosday and thank you for visiting!
