Sugar is sweet but vagina is betterI had a good time tattooing this gentleman. His my name is my name too. There are so many twists that you can put on this type of  imagery, I feel like you should stay true to its design yet make it creative enough to show that you can go above the Google Stampede.

 This young lady by the name of Lori was a pleasure to meet and work with. Lori was passing through Atlanta and wanted to get a tattoo at our shop before she left. This was the image she asked for and I was pretty excited to draw it up or her. There were a few really great tattoos that she wore proudly, honored to be next to some of them.

I did this butterfly on my good friend and great tattooer Cori James. I work with this young lady and I can tell you that she is tough as nails.

Titties…. need I say more

This gentleman came to me on his way through Atlanta as well. I had so much fun with him and his lady. Truly great people.

Tattooed this on my new friend Nick. I was pretty stoked to put this next to a Krooked Ken piece.

bearded lay 2 (2)These are a few from The Electric City Convention. I was really in to black at this convention. I always get really excited when people want black traditional, it’s one of my favorite approaches to take.

scorpionSo much fun!

A day with out a dagger is like a day with out water.

Its been a minute since the last time I posted anything. I have recently returned from a guest spot in Panama City Beach,Florida. Black Cat Tattoo is my old stomping grounds and where I was tought to tattoo by Albee. I am grateful for all that I was given, and the things that were shown to me by my co-workers. I get homesick from time to time and need a fix of  that familiarity, the very place I call home, and always will. This trip was a little different from the last few, I want to thank everybody that came in the shop to visit me, and the friends that gave me they’re hard-earned money for a tattoo. It really meant a lot to me to have that love still there waiting for me when I visit. I don’t like to look at people like “clients”, I prefer to look at them like friends who allow me to do the very thing that I love the most, I am very blessed to have every one of them in my life. I am going to show you a few pictures from my trip, and then a few paintings that I have finished up.

The picture above was done on the inner thigh, ouch…

These are always fun.

These picture were taken with my Iphone, so I apologize if they don’t look as good as they do on Instagram..

I miss this place, and my family that works here.

How could you not love this?

Here are a few random pics of projects and paintings that i have completed.

566 Boulevard SE Atlanta Ga. Come see us.

This was a paint trade to the Mrs. Lana Gooding who works at Virtue Tattoo in Houston,TX. Lana is an awesome tattooer and person, take a minute to look at her work.

I painted this and have plans to tattoo it on my girlfriend ASAP, she called dibbs and I aint about to try her!

Here is a fun tattoo “Sailor Jerry” piece that I finished up not too long ago.

Above is a painting that I finished, it is also a tattoo that I will be finishing next week, I am pretty excited about it.

I did this painting and handed it to my mentor and good friend Albee. I hope he liked it because I about threw up doing all that stippling!

A little background I finished on this elbow rose.

2012 Asheville Tattoo Convention

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 20, 2012 by Miguel Olascuaga

What an awesome convention!

This is Ryan, he was my first appointment at the convention. This gentleman was extremely grateful and easy to work on. I had a good time talking with him, and his wife as well. Ryan’s tattoo was pretty much a piece to represent things about his mother, from the stories he shard with me, it seemed this guy has a lot of love and respect for his mother. Thank you Ryan for the chance to tattoo you. Below is what I did on him..

This next tattoo is  classic Bert Grimm piece. I tattoo this little gem on a gent named Mikey. Mikey is a tattooer in Columbus,Ga.

This next tattoo below is a piece that I did on a local artist by the name of Anna Calloway, she was really kind and pretty much let me do whatever I wanted, as long as it had some Egyptian subject matter.

The tattoo below is on a young lady that asked me for a rose and a candle. This was a really fun tattoo, I felt bad because her and her boyfriend had been driving for a long time, and you could tell they were tuckered out. Many thanks to the both of them for choosing me for to do the work.

Being at this convention meant a lot to me. I had the chance to meet up with friends and artists that I adore and respect to the fullest. There are bonds that are made at these type of events, and I am blessed to have gotten the chance to be a part of it. Thank you Phil Colvin for sharing a booth with me, below are some pictures of great people.

We all have on our convention specks..

A good group of fellas..

Homies holdin’ down the lobby..

I wanted to save the best for last…, This is on one of my good friends and awesome tattooer, Shaun Bushnell. Shaun works at Blue Flame Tattoo, look him up.

I would also like to leave you with this healed tattoo from last year-

Below is a tattoo I did on my friend Colleen

I also did this eagle painting…
