Things That Go Bump In The Night

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.

I have not posted in a long time. I have a lot that I have been doing, I have just been lazy on this end of my social skills.

For even in the darkest of realms we shall find one another…

Below are some photos of recent tattoos

A few dragons from my trip to Panama City Beach, Black Cat Tattoo

I always enjoy going back home.

I am very fortunate to have such great clients that trust me…

I like tattooing snakes

The two go so well together. The Jesus tattoo I did while on my trip to Blue Flame Tattoo.

Don’t Fear It..

Butterflies, butterflies…

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.

Thank you Black Cat Tattoo-PCB

My trip went way better than I thought it would. I would like to give an open apology to those that I did not get to, I got in a little over my head and lost track of time. It was great hangin’ out with my old crew at Black Cat Tattoo, Darren Anderson, and Megan Fernandez are on my page for you viewing pleasure, so check them out! Picking each other’s brains for a new way of doing things is always my favorite thing about working with other artists. Getting a chance to work around the crew at Black Cat was refreshing and helpful in guiding me towards something a little better than what I was currently doing. Here is an owl below that I did on an existing client and friend of mine.

This was great piece, and I was grateful to have had the chance o do it. Below is a panther eating a girl’s head. I have seen a good bit of these done, and most of them are incredible. I took a few tips from Megan, and did a version that could fit on the top of a foot. It was fun, although I believe the next time I see Kevin, I will bug him to add something around it. Kevin Roth was the gentleman that received this tattoo, a very kind and appreciative soul.

Right below is my buddy Scot Thorpe. We have been working on a sleeve piece by piece. This is what I added while I was in PCB.

The piece above was taken from some old flash by Ben Corday, very awesome imagery.

The picture above ended up being a little shiny, but it’s the best one out of 500 that I took! I started this tattoo a while back, and this time to PCB I got to finish it. The random flower at top was already there before we started, I plan on re-doing it and adding it to the present tattoo.

Below here is a Sailor Jerry Hula Girl, this young lady was a walk-in at Black Cat, and I love me some Sailor Jerry .

And one more for  the road, below is a swallow and horseshoe that I tattooed on a young lady’s shoulder. PCB was real good to me, I will being seeing them again real soon!

Thank you for stopin’ by!
