Hogwarts sleeve

When I think of Harry Potter tattoos, I usually picture the Deathly Hallows symbol or Harry’s lightning scar – not Hogwarts. This sleeve done by Roly at Tattoo Technique in Clarksville, Tennessee features the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and it’s freaking gorgeous. Magical even. The details in the clouds and on the castle (those lit windows!) are incredible, and it’s hard to believe this ink is still a work in progress.

close up tattoo

Ever wanted to learn more about the specifics of tattooing? YouTuber SmarterEveryDay is here to help. He stopped in a random tattoo shop, Timepiece Tattoo Company, and spoke with a tattoo artist to learn more about the tools and the process. He took a close-up video of a tattoo in progress and slowed it way down – watching the needles work is fascinating and oddly mesmerizing. Despite having six tattoos, I’ve never looked at the process this way. I feel smarter.

Watch the ink-magic happen after the break.

sedda tattoo 1

Tattoo artist Pietro Sedda is based in Milan and has his own shop called The Saint Mariner. His Instagram feed shows off an impressive portfolio of completed inks that are artistic, surreal, and hard to look away from. Many designs feature portraits but instead of faces, the heads are covered in mazes or abstract designs or maybe animals. They’re the kind of works I’d expect to see hanging on the walls of a museum.

More examples of Sedda’s inked art after the break.

According to Funko, this is the first ever tattoo of the Pop! Dancing Groot figurine, and it belongs to @89centburrito. I never thought I’d actually ever say this in my life, but damn, that is one adorable tattoo.
