Only the classiest skeletons employ the age old technique of the hat-tip.
Covering some scars on the upper arm is this gorgeous example of a skeleton design. Applied by myself, but these lines are from the hand of Doc Ray in 1991.
Adorable cow tattoo between two Hamper Teague pieces.
Did this adorable cow tattoo on Rachel, one of our favorite bartenders. It is in good company between two Hamper Teague tattoos. Pay Rachel a visit at the Olde Towne Tavern!
Aaron and I started this snake and eagle to cover a smaller, solid black tattoo on his back. We wanted to do a strong, traditional image so it was a natural choice to use this classic depiction of good vs. evil. I am looking forward to starting a few more large-scale pieces this winter!
This is one of my favorite interviews with tattoo artist Filip Leu.
This tattoo is based on the customer’s drawing, we only had to make a few minor changes to make sure it would be a strong image for many years. Don’t be afraid to bring in your sketches if that is the best way for you to describe what you would like tattooed!
This was the first tattoo done from our “Get What You Get” wheel that made its debut at the 2015 Niagara Falls tattoo expo this year. It was a really fun tattoo to make for a brave customer! Fortunately he was not a crybaby about this one. We will see what tattoos the whee brings next year!
Black traditional hippie skull tattoo.
We made this black skull tattoo for Zach to work towards his all black body suit. Zach has been coming in regularly and we are making swift progress! Look for more black tattoos on this fellow in the future.
We made these roses for Kim to cover up a small tattoo on her shoulder. It’s surprising how easy covering up some tattoos can be! If you have ever considered covering up a tattoo, get a hold of us and see what we can do for you at Black Cat Collective!
