Anyone know someone who does pirate-esque/cartoonish style tattoos? Like the ones all the hipsters have nowadays. I don't know the name of the style.
Like these:

East River is a great spot. Friend and artist Liam McWilliams had his piece done there. You can see the rope on his arm that was developed from a knot he drew up. I don't remember which artist did the awesome line work on him.

some of those tattoo's are terrible

U owuld have to make that into a sleeve if u were to do it on your arms... Could do it as a back piece but i think it would dope as a half sleeve/full sleeve.. Also u cant ask a price cause artists all charge a different amount..


would it be a problem that im somewhat small? and I considered back but wouldnt really want to since I wouldn't be able to admire it myself

Just bring your idea into the shop and ask where would be the best positioning to get that tattoo for someone your size.. A good artist will know exactly where it will fit perfectly..

Lloyd : Very nice piece man

i love this

has anyone seen a joshua tree done well as a tattoo? i finally have a solid idea for my first tattoo, and i was thinking of getting a joshua tree done down the outside of my right shin, with the trunk of it at the base of my ankle, and the roots going down my foot. i want the branches to cross to sort of form a silhouette in the shape of the state of California, and the roots to to somehow do the same with the shape of Japan, including one of its smaller islands, Okinawa.

the shape of Japan would symbolize my roots, which was where i was born and raised, and the shape of California would symbolize where i grew up and branched out. i picked a joshua tree because they're only found in the Mojave, where i live (Antelope Valley), and Jerusalem, so i find that to be pretty symbolic as well. plus i think joshua trees look pretty badass when drawn well. here are just a few images i found on teh webzorz.





as far as colors go, i might wanna blend the gnarly blue, green, and orange sky tones from the sunrise we get here (see my avy) with the orange red and purple tones we get from sunsets (see above picture) in the background. i'm still deciding whether or not i'd wanna color the joshua tree or the shapes of Japan/California.

what do y'all think? this is my first concrete idea of a tat, which i've been pondering about for like the past two years ha

Thanks. Yeah the one on my chest was my very first tatt. No color, strictly black and grey for my sleeve. Although my legs gonna be full color.

nice piece.
looking to get something around the same style and quality,
just wondering how much this cost you?
how many sessions and which artist/studio this?

thanks
Oct 01, 2011 @ 18:08
Thanks man, cost was about over 2 grand. I believe 6 sessions running about 4-5 hours each.
Artist is a guy named Luke Stewart from San Francisco. Shop is called Seventh Son.
Here's his website

You might have got it done for free in a garage though? Seems like you picked the wrong two sides of the tattoo triangle
