Brooke's Castle

I met Brooke at the Summer Vibe tattoo convention earlier this month, and she shared these cool tattoos on the backs of her legs:


Brooke told me this is a depiction of a castle in Italy, and credited her artist Tattman Ceez (@tattman ceez), who works out of Craft Kingz Tattoo @craft_kingz_tattoo_shop in Baldwin, New York.

Thanks to Brooke for sharing these fun tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!

Julio Rocks An Amazing Graphic Chest Tattoo

Earlier this month, at the Summer Vibe tattoo convention on Long Island, I met Julio, who was sporting about 22 hours worth of work on this amazing geometric chest tattoo:


Along with Julio, I met the artist responsible for this, Jon Black (@jon._.black), from Miami Tattoo Company (@miamitattooco) in Florida.

Jon told me that this was a cover-up, as well. Before Jon had started his graphic tattoo mastery on Julio's chest, the phrase "only the strong" had been emblazoned there.

Thanks to Julio and his artist Jon for sharing this amazing work with us here on Tattoosday!

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!

Joseph and His American Eagle

On this day before Independence Day, let's celebrate some good old American traditional ink, like this awesome eagle on the chest of Joseph, who I ran into last month at the Whitehall subway station: 


Joseph, who shared some other work that will appear at a later date, credited this particular piece to Joseph Kindya (@joekindyatattoo), owner of Brooklyn Ink in Bay Ridge.

Thanks to both Josephs for their contribution, and we here at Tattoosday wish everyone a safe and happy 4th of July tomorrow!

An Award-Winning Crane by CJ Tattoo

This past weekend I went to the Summer Vibe tattoo show at the Nassau Coliseum and saw a lot of amazing tattoos. One of the most impressive ones was this gigantic thigh/hip piece on Ling (@lingjin_tattoo):


This stunning crane with peonies won "Best Color Tattoo" on day 2 of the show. I was fortunate enough to get to take a photo and meet the artist, CJ (@cj.tattoo), of CJ Tattoo in the East Village, NYC.

Definitely check out CJ Tattoo's site and follow him in Instagram. His work is amazing!

Thanks to Ling and CJ for sharing this incredible artwork with us here on Tattoosday!
