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.

majora's mask tattoo

Majora’s Mask is featured in the title of the sixth game in The Legend of Zelda series, and the evil in the mask plays a big part in the game. This shading on this intricate tattoo manages to catch some of the ominous vibes.

Tattoo artist Chaim Machlev works out of Berlin and does incredible work with black ink to weave complex and geometric patterns. The tattoos mostly focus on lines, but he also incorporates mandalas and insects. The finished pieces are eye-catching. According to Beautiful Decay (NSFW link), Machlev said the following in a recent interview:

“I actually started to make those designs because it was weird for me that people try to categorize tattoos and other art forms. I could say that I have that split in my designs, just like in my personality; I make those art-minimalistic lines — the computer kid inside me — and very detailed mandalas, the spiritual man inside me.”

Jurassic park tattoo

Jurassic Park was terrifying for many reasons, but it especially got spine-tingling when the velociraptors learned how to open doors. Even just looking at this awesome / unique / hilarious tattoo gives me the shivers I felt while watching the kitchen scene in the movie.

We believe this tattoo was done at Jackson Street Tattoo in Seattle.

Gandalf tattoo

When I picture Gandalf from Lord of the Rings, I think of the wizard in his pointy hat and holding his pipe and staff. Pretty much exactly what’s on display in this incredibly detailed tattoo. I can’t get over all the lines on the staff showing the wood grain and the crosshatches on the glove – it must have taken forever to complete.

This image was taken from a few angles, stretched, and stitched together in order to show off the full tattoo. The ink was done by Matt at Blue Cardinal Tattoo Littlebrough, Manchester, England.
