since i am back alive and my never ending interrest in tattoos came back i wanted to share some great blogs of really great tattoo artists with you, who i like. i think i will post more of this in the future ... we will see... the thing with tattoos and the internet is some hate love game for me. on the one hand the mysthic is gone and you get your information from everywhere but on the other hand i think its a great place for tattoo artist who ARE selfemployed to make some great advertising for themselfs, make business contacts with costumers and just be there to look at and me being honest - i am like 24/7 on the internet so i can just satisfy 2 of my addictions in one place. So here we go with some great tattoo sites i like.
Thomas Hooper is diffrent to me. I even was scared when i first saw him on the london tattoo convetion 2 yrs ago. but it doesnt matter how he make me feel in person i really love his work! and surprise he doesnt do some traditional-ish stuff but i still admire his tattoos and abstract paintings. a lot of mandalas, old copper engravings, graphics and dot-work, is included to his tattoos and art stuff. he combines his love for his graphical thoughts and style with really great tattoo-designs.
Chris Conn does not tattoo anymore but he is just one perfect artist. he just announced that he is very ill so he maybe wont paint that much anymore. his style has be copied a lot and i am just very sad to hear that he is that ill. just look at his work and admire how great he does what he does!
Valerie Vargas works in London at Frith Street Tattoo with a bunch of more great artists. she is known for her beautiful girls and makes really great traditional motives. she used to have more stuff on her blog but i the little she show is still worth to look at. she does just amazing paintings, drawings and flash sheets. i just discovered that she is pretty great in lettering too so i hope to see more from her.
So PPL thats it for today! I have a lot more to show but i dont want to spoil you that much at once.
Few is the number who think with their own minds and feel with their own hearts.
Hello sweethearts! here i tell you a lil bit about myself. Something "private" to give you a lil bit of sugar.
1988 i was born in munich - you know that city in germany with the oktoberfest and beer and fat germans who only eat "prezels" and sausages. i am vegetarian btw. my mother is african and my dad german. we moved around a lot when i was a kid - but
i never mind evengthough i think thats that the reason why i cant get really personal with ppl.
i was a wild teenager - with alcohol, too much partying and too much kissing around - and never had a real boyfriend cause i loved my freedom!
and then i met alex who is my boyfriend now... we meet at an art-fest in munich and somehow we stuck together and i really do love him!
i was always intrested in art. my grandparents were both architects and artists. i remember my first painting i gave my grandpa for present was
a skeleton of a squirrel. i think i knew that i would be a lil bit metal by heart then haha!
i got my first tattoo when i was 12 or 14...cant remember but i do remember that my mom just asked me if i want one cause my sister was getting one
and sure i said yes - cause i always wanted exactly the same what my big sister tatiana got!
so thats it - here you see my WIP work and love. i hope you enjoy it.
I used to go away for weeks... in a state of confusion.
this part is still under construction! wait and see.
