One More D20 Tattoo

Tattoo by Tim Victim

Tattoo by Tim Victim

I can’t believe I forgot this one when I did my post about D&D dice tattoos. I discovered Tim Victim while looking for dinosaur tattoos, and I’m really impressed with his work. Also, his shop, Deep Six Laboratory, is in Philadelphia, which I have an irrational affinity for (and not just because of the show; maybe it’s the nice fossil lady at the museum?).

The following tattoo by Tim and  Jeff Paetzold (of Topnotch Tattoos in Elgin, IL) is really awesome. Once I finish my dinosaurs-and-flowers sleeve (ha!), I’m thinking I would like to have my other arm tattooed with a dragon of some sort (maybe a twisty Midgard Serpent?), and I think the style of this collaboration would be perfect for such a piece (especially the alligator part).

Now I just need to win the lottery and get those guys in the same room again…

  1. If Jeff and Tim are interested in an idea, they get together at conventions. That girl in that picture is a friend of my wife, and she has a crazy iguana on her other leg by the same two.

    My wife and I are heading to Chicago tuesday to get tattooed by Jeff, I’ll have to bring this up to him, ha.

    Cool, thanks Matt Mosh! You’ll have to post pictures of your new tattoos and share a link with us!

    Do you have any idea how the work was split up between the alligator and the shark? Like, did Jeff do one and Tim the other? Or did they both somehow work on both?
