There seems to be recurring popular themes popping up on two dollar tattoo. One of them is the Owl tattoo! I am not complaining I love owl tattoos and in fact I have been known to frequent the Owl Tattoo Blog. This little single needle hooter was brought to us by Ghandy (at Hell or High Water tattoo in Muncton new Brunswick). I was fortunate to meet Ghandy in person while he was at the Toronto Tattoo Convention and his pal Joel pictured was lucky enough to get this little two dollar tattoo!
Okay, first off I have to send huge personal apologies to Robyn Lee (of Ace Of Spades Tattoo in Toronto Ontario) for not posting this great spring time inspired tattoo when I got it. But there it is! spring and summer fresh strawberry picked or rather pricked with a single needle on her co worker and fellow tattooer Eugene. Remember We love your comments!
Its been a crazy few weeks for all of us and the hiatus has been put on hiatus. Between the my full time gig, Me starting a new company, Seven Crowns Tattoo renovating and expanding, The g20 fiasco, The Toronto Tattoo Convention and a whole host of other distractions caused us to fall way behind on extra curricular activities.
Back to business as usual and first things first. We have prizes to award to some of our contributers! A while back we got some donations from the kind folks at Good Guy Supply and Body Art Pro and wanted to have some prizes to make this project that much more interesting. The decisions where way too tough for all of us to decide so we wanted to ask a few friends to help us out and judge their favorite submissions.
Our esteemed Panel Of Judges!
Doug Ford, Owner and operator of Good Guy Tattoo Supply the folks that bring you some of the best in tattoo supplies with the friendliest service on the planet.
Badur Ramji, The one man show that is body art pro from R & D to bottling, labeling and shipping.
Marisa Kakoulas, Lawyer by day and writer and black tattoo officianata by night. Also the brains and the beauty behind the very popular tattoo culture blog needles and sins and is the publisher of the black tattoo book.
Shane Turgeon, Tattoo shop proprieter and the man who probably has forgotten more about starwars and GI joe then you will ever know. Shane also curates the fantastic online archive toys and tattoos and is the publisher of the force in the flesh book.
We contacted the judges some time after the project started and gave them each a few weeks worth of submissions to look over. They picked from what was posted up until this here post and where asked only to judge the pieces based on what they liked best. there was no criteria other then to say what was their favorite.
Now onto the winners!
The winners will be contacted via email and will get a gift box in the mail. We have assembled a mish mash of prize boxes and what you get will be very random. You may get ink, disposable tubes, a clipcord, after care, or just candy!
Keep checking in I have a lot of backlogged images to post this week so there will be a lot to look at again!
