Dr. Death is back from Bath, England and ready for a new tattoo. His newest piece is a Celtic half sleeve designed by his friend, Nathan. This piece has nicely integrated references to Dr. Death’s other tattoos, and reflects the half sleeve on his left arm beautifully. The intricate detail in Celtic work makes the process of applying an elaborate outline such as this one rather intense. I expect six to eight hours of outlining alone. Photos of the outline will be posted later this week, so stay tuned.
Hold the date on July 29! Dr. Death – AKA John Troyer – from the University of Bath’s Centre for Death and Society talks memorial tattoos. His perspective on our cultural attitudes towards death and how we express them through tattooing is eye opening.
Come on down and join us in the discussion.
