PJ is the sort of guy that is capable of working in a few different styles. Traditional is his favorite, but for example, he also enjoys Japanese. We’re not kidding when we describe him as a nomad, and he’s lived in many different cities and been to many different countries. He spent a year in Hawaii (yeah, we’re jealous too), where he developed a fondness for Polynesian tribal work. Here are a few very different pieces, showcasing some of what he does.
Our favorite traveler will be off again on the 17th, and will be back in the shop on the 24th!
Many of Sharonn’s clients have large pieces that require multiple sessions. But she’s certainly not opposed to smaller, one-session pieces. Here are a couple of recents.
Ahh, the Zig Zag man. He is a classic and recognizable character (A+ to Zig Zag for the good branding). Everyone in the shop was envious of Sharonn for getting to do this one.
This next client came in with a lot of good ideas, but requested that the tattoo stay small. Most artists would be hesitant to take on such a thing, but Sharonn jumped right in and did a wonderful job.
The newest lady of the house is settling in to Witch City Ink, and we are loving having her here! It’s obvious that clients are loving that Sharonn’s here too, because her old ones have followed and new ones are finding her. Her schedule is beginning to fill up, so if you’d like to be tattooed by her, don’t hesitate to give us a call and we’ll schedule a consult for you. 978.744.9393
Here are two black and grey pieces that she’s done recently (by the way, have we mentioned that black and grey is her favorite?). These pictures were taken while the tattoos were fresh, so please forgive the quality!
This crow was done over multiple sessions. The photo does not do it justice — it’s beautiful and fits the client well!
Unless you are particularly familiar with flora, you may not recognize the above plant. It’s a thistle, which is a flowering plant covered in prickles that discourage herbivores from snacking on the plant. Thistles are also the floral emblem of Scotland.
Whenever someone comes in requesting a traditional tattoo (and this does not happen nearly enough.. *hint*), we automatically point them in PJ’s direction. He is great at them, and loves doing them. And when a person loves what they do, it definitely shows. Here’s a few pieces from PJ, some fairly recent, some from past lives.
PJ is in the shop Thursday-Monday, so stop in or give us a call! 978.744.9393
For the past four years, Boston’s Stuff Magazine has put out an annual body issue. This year, they did a feature on tattooed folk, and who better to speak to about body art than our very own Natan Alexander? As most Witch City Ink clients know, he is one of New England’s most prominent tattooers, currently owning twoshops while also being the brains and the love behind the Boston Tattoo Convention. Oh, and did you know that he was one of the people who pushed to legalize tattooing in Massachusetts? This is a man who is passionate about what he does, and we’re proud to have him representing us in Stuff.
As you may remember, Molly left us for a week at the beginning of the month to go take over Germany. Or, more accurately, to guest spot at Lowbrow Tattoo and enjoy the other side of the Atlantic. Here are two of the tattoos she did while there!
Natan still has openings at the Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention, taking place February 10th-12th at the Philadelphia Convention Center. If you’re interested in getting tattooed at the show, give us a call at 978.744.9393, or send an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below is some of Natan’s work, which has won multiple awards at various conventions!
And although New England has lucked out with a mild winter thus far, who doesn’t need a vacation by the time February rolls around? This is a really good excuse to get away and get tattooed. If you’ve never been, Philadelphia is a beautiful city, full of history, art, and good food. If you prefer not to drive, their public transit system is easy to figure out. So even if you choose not to spend all of your time at the convention, you’ll have plenty of things to do! We’d be more than happy to give you some recommendations.
Our wonderful Molly is off on some big adventures right now. Over the weekend she got on a plane to Germany, where she will be doing a guest spot in Berlin! She’ll be back at Witch City Ink the week of the 15th, and in the meantime, consults can booked for her return if you call the shop at 978.744.9393.
Here are a couple of pieces that she started shortly before leaving:
