As we wind down 2010, and look ahead to 2011, I wanted to take care of one of my several loose ends from the past year.
Back in July, I met a guy named John on the D train. He had tattooed arms and we chatted a bit. He said he'd send me photos and he did a few weeks later.
I never posted the photos because the resolution was low, and when I tried to increase the size, they blurred. I was going to include these in the Christmas housecleaning post, but the work is just too good.
So hear you have them, small photos, but recognizably amazing:
I mean, what is there to say? This work is quite excellent. The koi, the tiger, the sailing ship, sugar skull, nautical stars - it's all quite a body of work!
The artist is Nacho, who appeared once before on the blog here. You can check out Nacho's work here. in New York, he tattoos out of Studio Enigma on Avenue U.
Thanks to John for sharing these amazing tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!
And thanks to all of our fans and contributors for making 2010 a successful year of inkspotting!
