The title pretty much says it all


Clipper Fever

Yes, it has been clipper-tastic for me here lately. Douglasville is waking up a little after they’re summer filled fun days.

Wanna hear a song about it.., here it go..

This was on my good buddy Stacey. He works for the Douglasville City Police Department. Very cool guy, always down for a cool tattoo.

Below is a tattoo I  finished on my friend Ian. He sat like a champ, even though I made him listen to Wayne Hancock, but the upside is that we jammed out the new Alkaline Trio  “Damnesia” album as well, and he was grateful.

I also did a little Angel piece that was a ton of fun. This gentleman gave me an idea that is usually a little foreign to me, but after taking a little reference and switching up a few things, I was happy with the end result.

All that I can hope for is that the week will progress, and more tattoos will surface. Good times!!!

Tropical Depression

Posted in Some Art with tags , , , , , , , , on July 7, 2010 by Miguel Olascuaga

It’s hard to tell these days what disaster will fall on our city next. The oil spill in the Gulf, to the tropical storms and Hurricanes that will  push the oil ashore and further more push the tourism completely out. Our studio has been steady, but by no means the engine it once was. I thank the great people of our city for coming in and keeping us busy.

There are so many  rumors surrounding the oil and where it is headed next. Our beaches have been incredible, yet the media still tends to run them off. I am hoping to gain something more than depression from all of this, I have been wanting to do a few guest spots and this is exactly the sort of thing that will push me to do so.  I am wanting to go back to Texas again, what a place, I had the best time there and know that I have made some good friends.  I can only hope that our town can bounce back from all of this.

I have been painting and trying to forget about what, or what might not happen. Though my ideas have been scattered, I have been happy with the last few projects(which most are still waiting to be finished).  I have a few tattoos out there that I am trying to get done so that I look like I’m at least trying to be productive.

Here is a piece (below) that a friend brought to me, I changed it up a little but tried to keep it as close to the original things that she enjoyed about it. I lay my pride down a good bit theses days, it’s not always about trying to impress other tattooers, or being the guy that tears other people’s ideas apart until they themselves are subject to the cruel ways in wich we tattooers get our way, and down play the client with our Jedi tattoo mind game.

This is actually a cover up that I, once again, forgot to take a before and after picture. Pardon the glare, but it’s all I know.  Here is a little piece of flash that I painted for the shop sheet that we are putting together. Thanks Percy for the hot naked star chick!
