Molly at the BTC

If you stopped by the shop last weekend, you may have noticed that we were closed, which is a rarity! We had a good excuse though – we were hard at work over at the Boston Tattoo Convention.

But this post isn’t about ALL of us. This post is specifically about Molly.

Let us explain. There are a couple of little known facts about Molly:
-She enjoys doing Japanese pieces.
-Not only does she enjoy them, but she’s really, really good at them.
-She is a machine.

No kidding. She sat for ten hours at the BTC working on this cherry blossom leg sleeve. Take a moment to read that again. Ten hours. That is one brutal lady.

The above photograph only shows a fraction of how gorgeous the piece was – we hope to snag another one to show you soon. High-fives to her and the woman able to sit still for that long! And here’s some more that Molly did at the convention:

We know, this post has probably left you itching for a new tattoo. Don’t worry, we’re here for you – stop in or give us a call! 978.744.9393

International Guest Artists at Witch City Ink

Witch City Ink is truly an International destination each year with friends dropping in from studios from around the world. Last years Boston Tattoo Convention saw artists HoriRyu and Nene spending a week with the crew after the convention. Below are some photos from the event:

After hanging out with us all at the BTC last year, Japanese Tattoo artist HoriRyu started a large Japanese dragon on Natans leg. The initial design began with a 5 hour outline session.

This is what we do for fun!

Here’s a better photo of HoriRyu’s Dragon Leg Sleeve outline on N^T^N after the Boston Tattoo Convention. HoriRyu and Natan will complete the tattoo when Natan works at his studio in Tokyo in 2009.

This will be finished in Japan next year.
