While Natan was busy working away at the Manchester, New Hampshire Live Free or Die Tattoo Convention this last weekend, he happened to win the first place trophy for best backpiece! After working through many sessions, Natan recently finished up this massive phoenix piece on shop buddy, Mike Carlin:
1st Place Men's Backpiece- Live Free or Die Tattoo Convention
Mike was nice enough to make it out the show in order to enter the contests and was rewarded for his efforts with a shiny new plaque.
Natan is booking about a month out for large, custom work, but does have scattered availabilities for consults. Make sure to call or email to start planning your custom piece with him today!

Natan has been working away on a whole new crop of work lately. Check out the following pieces he has recently finished up:
Cock fight backpiece
Big and bold, this backpiece on the friendly Will Means speaks for itself; an old fashioned cock fight! All black and grey with an attention to line density, repeating patterns and varying textures, this piece was just finished up the other week.
Tribal Battle Axe
Steve Johnson soldiered through this large tribal battle axe piece on his ribs in one long sitting from Natan. Check out the soft black 'n grey shading lending a bit of a sculptural and three dimensional shape to the organic patterns.
In addition to all of the projects Natan has been finishing up lately, he also has a number of multiple-session, larger pieces in the works. Check out some of his progress shots from a handful of his repeat customers below:

At 85 years old, Colorful Bill is still chipping away at a full-body suit. Sporting a whole lot of work from Natan, Bill has become quite a regular at the shop, swinging by every week or so to hang out, chat, and usually book up some more time. Here's a peek at the latest work he's gotten.
Tribal with skull
A returning client with large sections of bold tribal work from Natan, John stopped by the other day to add in some more stuff. You can never go wrong with skulls, ever.
In progress for only the last month or so, this koi half-sleeve is steadily approaching completion. Utilizing fundamentals of traditional Japanese designs for the foundation of this tattoo, Natan has been having a blast exploring different avenues of color theory and design to customize this piece.
Natan is currently booking out for any medium to large, creative, custom pieces, so give us a call at 978 744 9393 or stop on by the shop and we'll get you a spot on the schedule today!
