Awesome Macro to Micro Science Sleeve
Whether or not you dig tattoos, you have to acknowledge the fact that there are some amazing artists out there providing great artwork that is personal to those who receive them.
This fantastic piece by Deanna Wardin at San Francisco’s Tattoo Boogaloo celebrates the wonder of life from the greatest to the smallest. It is a really beautiful piece that took 31 hours spread over 8 sessions. An impressive feat for both canvas and artist.

"Official" tokidoki Tattoos at Black Banditz?
Maybe I’m way late to the party, but I’ve never heard of “official tattoos.” I’d assume one proficient tattoo artist can trace some vector art just as well as the next. But official tokidoki tattoos are now available at Black Banditz on Melrose Ave. Go get one. Or five.

A Little Bit On The Geek Ink Side: Garbage Pail Kids backpiece tattoo. The original card this was based on was named Charred Chad/Fryin’ Ryan, but the name was changed to ‘Orrible OZZY after the tattoo wearer’s son.
Anyone else collect the living shit out of Garbage Pail Kids cards back in the day?
A Little Bit on the TREOS Side: I haven’t been posting much this week mostly because I’ve been stalking my favorite band, The Receiving End of Sirens. The Boston-based group broke up in ‘08 but play a few reunion shows every two years.
While I was talking with Brendan Brown, who sings and plays bass, I noticed he had two Uglydolls tattooed on his sleeve. I couldn’t help but ask about them. He told me that those were the first toys he gave his son, who still has them, and that the ribbon around them is the ID number given to his son the day he was born in the hospital. Very cool.
Huge thanks to all of TREOS for hanging out after the shows.

A Little Bit On The Well Played Side: This dude tattooed Edward Cullen from Twilight on his arm as part of a bet where he and another friend would pic tattoos for each other and get them while blindfolded. Stupid bet, for sure, but he covered it with freaking Rufio from Hook, so now it’s a million times less stupid thus making it negative stupid which equals awesome to the power of rad.
