From waaay back. I always really liked this one. #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #hotrodflames #sandiego @gurutattoo
Tiger shark. Fresh and shiny. The rest of the arm will get filled out with more Polynesian stuff later. #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #polynesiantattoo #sharktattoo #sandiego @gurutattoo
Simple, and bold. We don’t necessarily need complexity. #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #painitblack #sandiego @gurutattoo
9 years, and then 6 months. That’s the ages of the shark on the pec and the orca on the ribs, respectively. Same ink, same artist. The black will fade a bit and the edges will soften. But if it’s designed right, it’ll still look great for your grand-kids. Especially when we fill in all the background areas, which will be happening next on this one 😀👍. #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #polynesiantattoo #oldtattoo #sandiego @gurutattoo
Dragons should cover entire body parts. They, and you, deserve nothing less. #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #dragontattoo #dragon #sandiego @gurutattoo
Filipino fusion. Add a pec extension to your To-Do list. 😃 #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #filipinotattoo #polynesiantattoo #sandiego @gurutattoo
Ahhhh. Some straight-up contemporary tribal. #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #leozstyle #sandiego @gurutattoo
Go big. It's a good answer to almost all tattoo questions. This Celtic backpiece is based on an original print by @jendelyth. I completely re-drew it, because what works nicely on a rectangular painting does not necessarily work as a design for the human body. #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #celtictattoo #backpiece #sandiego @gurutattoo
