Tim's Sleeve Illustrates A Vision of Life on Earth

I met Tim back in April in Penn Station and took several pictures of his left arm, which is fully-sleeved. What follows is a presentation of the work, from top to bottom:There's a lot going on here, but Tim summed the theme of the sleeve as "Hell is the world we're living in, and we're all trying to escape Death." The top of the arm features the angel, Gabriel, watching over us.The city that is

Salvatore Shares a Family Heirloom

Yesterday marked the anniversary of the death of Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins, so it seems appropriate to share the following tattoo, courtesy of Salvatore:Located on his upper right arm, Salvatore explained that his family emigrated from Europe several generations ago. His grandfather joined the service when he was a young man and served in World War II. His travels brought him, at some point,

Tara's Stunning Tattoos Represent Clarity and Freedom

I was riding my bike along the water and the Belt Parkway in South Brooklyn last month, when a woman passed me on her roller skates, headed in the other direction.I quickly reversed directions and caught up with her because I wanted to ask her about her half-sleeve:It's really quite stunning, and I was interested in who was the artist responsible for this work. Tara credited Christian Masot at

Rob Shares a Handful of Dust

Today's tattoo comes to us from Rob, who I met in Penn Station last month.Rob has fifteen tattoos, and he offered up the one above (two, if you count "This too shall pass" on his wrist).He explained that the logo is from his friend's band called Handful of Dust. I wasn't able to track down a band site, but I thought I'd post it anyway, since it looks cool.This is a video of the band performing

Amanda and Her Koi

This koi is swimming upstream on Amanda's left arm.Talking to her in Penn Station, Amanda explained that she was "really interested in the Japanese style".She received the tattoo from Pat James Dean at Tattooville, in Neptune, New Jersey. Done in two sessions, Amanda told me that she selected Pat, in part, because he had his whole back inked in the traditional Japanese fashion. I'm going to take

Nadir's LA Ink

Last month, my lovely wife Melanie was hospitalized with appendicitis. A bummer by all accounts, but on one occasion, when I left Maimonides Medical Center to grab a slice of pizza, I ran into a guy on Fort Hamilton Parkway named Nadir, whose forearm tattoo jumped out at me:Nadir is an Angeleno transplanted here in the Big Apple, but he wears his hometown on his sleeve. The distinct LA logo, most

Zoe's Birds, Aloft

I met Zoe a couple weeks ago when I spotted an incredible bird tattoo creeping up over her shoulder:What's especially mesmerizing about this tattoo is where it begins:Starting in the middle of her back, this flock of birds lifts up off of her flesh, and flies over her shoulder.So from where did the inspiration for this tattoo come? Zoe explains:"I stole the color combination and the silhouetted

Musician Monday: Sly's Mary Keeps on Burning

Last week, while passing through Penn Station, I ran into Sly, one of the vocalists from an up-and-coming band called Sloburn.Sly shared this, one of her seven tattoos:Sly explained: "I'm more of a spiritual person. The tattoo is Mary. I'm Catholic, for one thing, but I like wearing rosaries and this is something I don't have to worry about if I forget my rosary. She's always on me. That's one of

Vincent's Cross Represents Faith and Heritage

Religious tattoos are quite common, as any casual observer of other people's tattoos can tell you. Generally, I don't ask people about them, but every so often I feel inclined, especially when I think they're done nicely.Take Vincent, for example. I met him in Penn Station and took a picture of this cross on his forearm:Vincent explained that he drew this design, incorporating Celtic designs, as
