This inspired me to seek out some other CFTBL tattoos on the web; I found quite a few, but here are some of my favorites:

This great shot (bonus points for complementary-colored t-shirt) from BMEzine’s Sci-Fi Gallery was inked by David Antonio at Good Clean Fun Tattoo Studio in Georgia. I love the circular composition, creepy lighting, and menacing claw.

The colors, placement, and technique of this lower half-sleeve are really excellent . Bonus points for the brushstroke-lookin’ daubs of color around the edges. Tattoo by Bez at Triple Six Studios in Sunderland, UK. Photo from

The following Monster Mash sleeve (in progress in this photo) is from welovethedark‘s flickr photostream (self-described “corporate goths”). The process from source artwork (by awesome illustrator David Hartman) to finished piece (by Charles Cain at Mark of Cain Tattoo near Boone, North Carolina) is well-documented. Excellent artwork, Excellent tattoo, excellent photos and play-by-play description. Kudos to all!

    It has been stopped to be shaded though, I also have lovely creature from black lagoon tattoo on my arm.

  5. It’s unbelivable how people can wear these tattoos on a daily basis! Don’t get me wrong, they’re awesome, but it’s in flesh, mostly for ever. So, how can you be sure you want to wear this “green something” on you for the entire life? Your people are really brave)
    I love Unique, awesome and extraordinary tattoos too, but I have no idea what kind of lifestyle one should have to wear it all))))

  6. Awesome tattoos! I like all of them since they are full of intricate details and the result is very mind blowing. It is like the artist is working on a canvass!
