Alex's Scary Elbow Spider

I met Alex a couple weeks ago at the Union Square farmer's market and he shared this tattoo, which seems appropriate for Halloween:

Alex credited this to Joe Chatt (@joe_chatt), who did the tattoo last summer while guesting at a NYC shop, but has since moved to Rose Tattoo Parlour (@RoseTattooParlour) in Brooklyn.

Alex explained:
"I just really wanted to get my elbow done ... normally people get like spider webs, or roses, mandalas, like round things ... I knew I really needed to get something round ... [Joe] was trying to push for a spider web, but  I was going through his book and I was like, maybe something else. And he really wanted to do this design and he was like, oh that would fit well, with the claws and stuff..."
The rest, as they say, is history.

Thanks to Alex for sharing his spooky cool spider with us here on Tattoosday!
