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..

The Wizard making it happen

Below is my view of the drive to Asheville

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…

Yesterday was a great day for tattoos. I had a chance to do some really fun stuff.

Hunter was a real sport. The elbow is not fun at all.

Justin is another trooper. Didn’t flinch a bit.

Seems like there are demons chasing me these days…. or at least my mind has been haunted by dreams of death and visions of paranormal beings that roam our living quarters.  I have been using all these dreams to my advantage, and putting together a few projects for the near future. On a much lighter and positive note, I recently have been published  under the  “Artist Spotlight” section in Atlanta’s new magazine entitled, “Ink Atlanta” Issue No. 1.

I am grateful to have been published, and I am hoping that it will get me better acquainted with Atlanta’s  tattoo community. Thank you Jessica Hill, and Ink Atlanta for giving me some exposure.

July 21st I will be going back to Panama City for a little guest spot at Black Cat Tattoo. I am hoping to sink my teeth in to some new skin. It’s gonna be nice to see friends and play sum hillbilly jams with the boys. If you live in Panama City and you are reading this post, then come get some fresh ink from me while I’m there!

Above is a painting I did as a trade out with great tattooer by the name of Mr. Shane Woodward. Shane works at Big Kahuna Tattoo in Boca Raton, Fl. I am really looking forward to getting a piece of art from this gentleman. Below is a painting I did for Mr. Bert Krak. I bought an awesome machine from him, and I believe sending a little painting to the person is a  a sign of respect, and further extends  my gratitude, a little something I learned from my good buddy Darren Anderson.

I have recently done a few things that I am happy to post. One of which is a Sailor Jerry piece that friend, and client “Denny” asked me to put on him. I realize that I do a good bit of  Sailor Jerry imagery, but I really enjoy it, and as long as they are asking for it, then I will always be glad to tattoo it.

Below, is a little owl jammer I had the privilege of doing on a referral from Mr. Dave Kruseman. It was her 18th. Birthday and she has been saving her money for it. Its makes me happy to see people planning out they’re tattoos and actually saving for the occasion. She sat real well, and was very polite.

Now…. this next one below is a sugar skull that I did on Eric. I got to do pretty much what I wanted with this piece, and I really enjoyed doing it. I feel very blessed to have so many people trust me with their skin.

I was really happy that I didn’t shit the bed on this one..

Below is a little dragon that I did on a walk-in. I am posting it because it’s not my usual color scheme, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

and one more thing to post would be this…. This gentleman came in our studio asking for Mr. Colvin, Phil was booked so he asked if I would be interested. It was a challenge for me to approach this with a different view other than how I really felt like doing it. I know Phil wanted me to step out from behind the “Traditional Curtain” for a spell, and so I did so. It took me quite a while, but it was still fun. This man’s father passed away and he wanted this Gibson Headstock  with a banner that read “Dad”. It took a bit longer than I thought, but at the end of the day it was still a solid tattoo.

Thank you for stopping in and reading my blog!
