We're going to have shirts for the shop soon. Jae Audett meticulously designed this shit for us. It's so tough... If you get tattooed by us we'll just give you one for free. Why? Because we want you to look as Untamed and barbarous as humanly possible. These will go perfect with your motorcycle, leather jacket and or out-the-front knife.
I've been doing a lot of research lately.Working my ass off. Painting everyday. Tattooing 6 days a week. Drawing between appointments and playing Xbox 360 at night after I'm done painting. Rick brown was nice enough to draw and send me the perfect wing reference and it's so good I thought I'd share it. The skull and the girl is an old image from a more clouded, CRYPTIC source. I'm going to redraw, update and paint it in the next week or so. I love old tattoo flash so this will be fun. -Murray
Lots of good stuff this week. Damn. First up is a piece that Rick brown and Teddy worked on together while rick was in DC visiting. Second is of a Steely Dan tattoo on Murray By Rick Brown while he was at Flying tiger, the week before. The third flash sheet with all the satanic imagery is by Marcus Mancini. The Ever so shiny eagles and skulls sheet is by Murray Sell. And the the skull with the SS helmet, based on the flash design Murray painted, was also tattooed by, you guessed it, Murray Sell.
The light house tattoo was done by Murray Sell in two sittings on a real cool kid from Mass named Bill. The paintings are for the"love thy neighbor" Mcinnis Tatttoo art show that's coming up (Totally awesome shop by the way). The skull with the knife through its head and reaper was done by Murray Sell along with the wild as hell Bulldog nun. Those are currently at the framer being custom framed in preparation for the show. The snake and dagger was just finished by Jae Audett YESTERDAY. It is SO cool. This picture really does it no justice. Jae's is one of the most precise anal retentive (in a good way mind you) tattooers we've ever worked with. He is an extremely valuable asset to our family. He is an accomplished painter, and guy's let me be the one to tell you he lays waste to some tattoos. The the tiger head is also for the show but will be made into a shirt for the shop fairly shortly....The amount of energy and productivity in this shop is really exciting to be a part of. Truly inspirational.
The "Love thy Neighbor" show is on Saturday August 8th (2009 respectfully) At machines with magnets, 400 main street, Pawtucket RI Shit drops at 5 pm y'all.
