Crusty Eagles In Paradise

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 11, 2011 by Miguel Olascuaga

Another great trip to Panama City Beach. I did some really cool tattoos, and got to see old friends.

Mattew Welch Flew in from New Mexico to do a spot as well. It was great having all of us in the same building again. I ended up trading a tattoo out with Megan Fernandez, I got her to do a hotstuff devil on my leg, and I tattooed an eagle on her leg going slightly across her knee. The picture is a little crusty from the following day, but it’s all I had to go on.

I got to do some really awesome tattoos while I was in town

I felt so lucky to do all these great ideas.

I adore the people of this town. I left my home in search of something that would broaden my horizons, and I have always been welcomed back by my peers with open arms, this is what is important to me.

People trust me to do tattoos on them that they will be proud of, I also find as much pride in them as well.

The picture above did not come out as well as I hoped. I must have taken a million pictures of every tattoo, and STILL, I am a shitty photgrapher!

Here is a little painting that Megan Fernandez, Darren Anderson, and myself put together for our buddy Steve’s birthday.

A great photo for a great week.


My Time At LiveWire Tattoo.

First off I would like to thank my boss and close friend, Phil Colvin. When I brought up wanting to do a spot in Jacksonville, he recommended LiveWire Tattoo in Jax Beach,Fl. LiveWire is owned by Jason Harms, the people who make up this great shop include: Jason Harms, Margot Audler, and Richard Stell(when not traveling). I had a damn good time hanging out with everybody I worked with over the course of my spot. Here are some tattoos I did while I was there.

The tattoo above was one of my favorites, basically because I don’t really do many tattoos with this feel and subject matter. Call it whatever style you like, I call it fun. Jason Harms gave me some great pointers when approaching this tattoo, I believe it came out the way it did thanks to him.

Above is an Eagle I started in Atlanta. It is the beginning to an entire torso piece that will include a compass, roses, and some other things that will hurt. Justin is a good guy and know how to sit still.

Below is a tiny Ben Corday tattoo, it is based on of a piece of his flash. Margot asked me if I wanted to tattoo her before I left, and I was honored to have a piece of art on her, and sitting next to so many other great tattooers tattoos.

Thank you Margot for allowing me to be on your museum leg!

Below is a little painting that I whipped up before I left for Jacksonville, oddly enough it’s the same tattoo she chose to get without knowledge of the painting.

Here is a picture(below) of a tattoo that I did on our front girl and apprentice, Cori. I did post this a while back, but it has healed up and I feel like its time to give an updated version.

I am going to post a few more things.

A few Sundays ago, a young man brought this piece of flash in to me and said he wanted the tattoo to be as close to the original as possible. This is where I usually just draw something I think is more original or maybe just try to give them something that is just for them. It takes control to do it as it lays, so to speak. I may have changed a few tiny things, but I controlled my ego and just did what the kid wanted. The client was happy and I walked away feeling like I ate Buddha’s fart, but as the great Janet Jackson once said..,”Control”.

Below is a picture of a cover up I was asked to do. I used lilies like she requested, and used one of the leaves to cover the ever so popular Kanji. Keep in mind I realize that you can still see the old tattoo due to the swelling, however healed, it served it’s purpose.
