The Official Tattoo Thread

compiled some of my favorite ink in MMA (contrary to popular belief, there are some dudes with dope shit and no tribal haha). thread bump too.

Dan Hardy (Sleeve artist: Sung Song, Upper Left Arm piece: Tim Hendricks)




Thiago Alves (Sleeve artist: Ami James, also blended in an old tattoo of a pitbull that was on his upper-arm)




Kid Yamamoto: Left arm is japanese sleeve, with a traditional americana panther on the forearm. Upper right arm is a bio-mechanical piece. Chest lettering was done the old school way of tapping the needle. His back has some sort've rose-type piece (can never find decent pics of it).


Cosmo Alexandre


Thiago Silva

I think at least 5 HB users have that exact same Bernini angel tattoo now.

No hate, just something I've noticed.

morris is that the angel with the thorns? I know realcityjon, deadpool and ron have it, almost 5.

It's a good piece of artwork, and it's a very technical tattoo.

I just prefer original artwork, for me personally, especially seeing that so many people end up getting the same thing done. I've been wanting to get a specific tattoo for about 2 years now. I came up with the design for it and have re-done it 30 or so times. I just have no money to get it done by a quality artist.

yea dude the only part correct about that piece is the clothes, the wings look so haphazard, the outline above the shoulder/neck area and in the armpit is too thick, the face looks like she just got in a prize fight, the hair detail is blotchy, and whatever it is that is hanging off her hand is just wrong

its a mediocre piece...but i've definitely seen worse. i'm assuming morris only paid a couple hundred dollars for it. he got what he paid for.
Mar 19, 2012 @ 19:10
the colors a little too dark for his skin color but ben hendersons definitely got one of the coolest tattoos.

Mar 19, 2012 @ 19:42
If by coolest you mean gayest, then yes, by all means, ben henderson has one of the coolest tattoos

Angel wings is a chicks tattoo and even then it's a bad one.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

a lot of great tattoos in this thread. I have a few myself that I don't regret but were definitely learning experiences through trial and error (which is not something I would suggest with permanent ink) but thankfully most can be corrected.

I have a tribal on my left arm, shoulder, chest, back, and learned a lot about tattoos from getting it. I'm not asian but I love the asian styles, it's a tattoo art that has been perfected and IMO is so popular amongst all cultures because it just looks so vivid.
This is a half sleeve I want to get done by Andy Engel in Germany, who also is the artist of the work in the picture. I hope I can get an appointment...any advice from tattoo aficionados are welcome in respect to duration and average cost. I think it will be less than 12 hours since it's a half sleeve shoulder to elbow...

Can anyone suggest a crisp, clean japanese artwork tattooist around the NY/NJ area? I'm looking to get a half sleeve done, but I'm having a hard time finding good artists. If anyone could help me out, that'd be great. An example of something I'm looking for (I don't mind a long wait).
