Happy Tat

October 8th, 2007

I love Redwork and embroidery.
I love tats.
I love watching LA Ink (and LOVE their theme song from Nouvelle Vague).

If Redwork had a scandelous trist with a tatoo… this is what it’d look like.

I haven’t found such a great combo since french fries & mayo. I learned about this M’broi-d’tat (my new word - so very Stephen Colbert-esque of me, eh) from Floresita, and you can get your own Santa Muerte tat here - for free. Love her work… and I’m especially fond of her Zombie Girl.

If you’re from Astoria, you’ll get a kick out of this.  The place the cruise ship visitors flock to en masse.

    Girl, you are so ready for Los Dias de los Muertos! Awesome tattoo! I’ve seen a couple of episodes of LA ink. She’s really good! I’m also interested (not on me, personally) in Japanese full tattoo body suit (the pain, the pain!). Large scale drawings of japanese traditional images. Just mind blowing!
