Ink&Dagger Tattoo Parlour welcomes guest artist Jeff Johnson April 24th-28th, and his work is gnarly. Check out his website at www.jjtattoos.com and contact him to make your black work, stipple or biomech dreams come true.
Jeff will be visiting with tattoo artist Nathan Kostechko on their tour of the South before heading off to Puerto Rico, good times will be had.
Folio Magazine (Zurich) featured Russ Abbott’s rendition of the Vacanti Mouse on Jes Strickler’s head in their article titled “The Reluctant Monster.” We don’t speak or read German very well, but we think they liked it!
The caption reads (we think!):”Work of tattooist Russ Abbott. Commented one fan: We have seen work like this but he’s taken it to the next level!”
The tattoo was made at the Red Tree Gallery in Columbus Ohio after Hell City Killumbous last year. Jes Strickler said “My head tattoo might be ridiculous or crazy to some people but I feel it’s one of the most innovative things done with a tattoo and a body part in a long time. To have it recognized internationally is huge for Mr.Russ Abbott and tattooing. Thanks Russ!”Ear, Ear, Jes and Russ!
