My client Nick wanted to pay tribute to his childhood home and family roots in Florida with some of his most powerful memories from growing up, from the sweet to the painful. These included living on and around citrus farms, and dealing with the ever-present stinging insects like mosquitos and velvet ants. We had fun thinking of all the ways to depict oranges and managed to include every aspect except for the seed form. These photos show the tattoo healed after almost one year.
Three days of becoming a better artists, tattooers, and people! The Rock River Tattoo Art Expo will combine aspects of artist-focused professional development events with the style of a larger tattoo convention, open to the public. The two convention floors will be filled with artist and vendor booths, with the artists showcasing not only tattooing but work in other mediums as well. Some booths will feature live painting alongside the tattoo booths. There will be additional vendor booths in some of the hallways and auxiliary spaces along with a museum exhibit showcasing some important tattoo artifacts including some of local significance. Throughout the weekend there will be activity on the main stage including interviews, talks by high-profile speakers, a historical discussion, tattoo art critiques, and a daily showcase of work that was completed on the convention floor.
