Brand new snake tattoo! This is going to be a really beautiful forearm piece. In fact, one of my last posts before our vacation to Costa Rica, which is famous for its biodiversity: over 130 different snake species make Costa Rica their home, and this includes some of the world’s most deadly. Bushmasters, coral snakes, and the REALLY dangerous fer-de-lance are famous.

Terry Ribera did a cover up on a long time friend that drove down from Sacramento to San Diego get this tattoo done over two days.  The design was drawn up on the spot for a cover up as Terry and Neal agreed that this would be the best way to prepare for the design given the distance between them and the nature of the cover up.  Neal wanted to cover up his old tattoo with a much larger design.  With this tattoo the goal was to create something that would distract the viewers eyes from any lingering marks leftover from the older design without compromising the layout of the new tattoo.  The colors choices where limited as the tattoo is a cover up, they decided to go for a Steel Blue and Battleship grey color as the base of the design.  The background was done in your standard Japanese black and grey, with some touches of opaque grey to help conceal the older tattoo.  Accents of Red and Teal where put into the fish to help the image less of a flat appearance.  The tattoo covered quite well,  and Neal will be back for a return trip to Remington Tattoo in San Diego to visit in the next coming months.  If you would like to see more work from Terry Ribera, please check out his websites: www.terryribera.com | www.remingtontattoo.com

More tattoo art from Terry Ribera.  Terry Ribera has been painting a a lot lately trying to push his art in new directions and focus on more classic tattoo themes.  This months subject along with many others is of a kapala.  Terry has long been fascinated with the subject, as it is a powerful image that has deep roots in tibeton culture, a great source for many tattoo subjects.   This painting was done in the same dry brush technique as the Hanya in this weeks earlier post. : www.terryribera.com | www.remingtontattoo.com

If you didn’t have a chance to Visit San Diego’s best little tattoo parlor Remington Tattoo on the 8th you sadly missed out.  There where new paintings to be seen at the show plus prints.   Today in this blog posting we will be sharing with you a glimpse of some of the new art on display.  Terry Painted this classic Japanese tattoo concept of a Hanya and a snake with peony flowers.  The technique involved to make the painting is a russian dry brush technique using oil paints and sewing machine oil on cold press water color paper.  The Results mimic charcoal drawing, but the art is made with traditional oil paints.  A small amount of paint is added to bristle brushes and lightly wiped off onto a rag and then applied in a scrubbing technique.  The paper is treated with sewing machine oil to help with the blending and lifting of the paint.  Details are added in with a kneaded eraser and eraser style pencil.  darker areas, and crisp edges are placed in with softer camel hair brushes mixing the paint with the sewing machine oil for those darker areas only.

Star Wars tattoo by Terry Ribera at San Diego’s best Remington Tattoo

Star Wars tattoo by Terry Ribera at San Diego's best Remington Tattoo

Terry and Chris met close to 8 or 9 months ago when Chris originally booked his appointments for this custom star wars theme tattoo.  There is everything from Boba Fett to Han Solo frozen in carbonite.  This tattoo was done in about 20 hours of hard work, as you can see it’s a fairly detailed tattoo to get started so the time was a bit longer than a lot of Terry’s other sleeve projects, but the results are more than what Chris was hoping for.  Chris will be starting a new project 2 months from now on his other arm, the theme will be based on the Video Game Resident Evil.  Most of the concept will be pulled from original game and will take a good bit of research and drawing on Terry’s end, but it should compliment Chris’s arm quite well. To see more of Terry’s work please check him out on his website: www.terryribera.com | www.remingtontattoo.com

This tattoo has been a huge honor for Terry to tattoo his long time Friend Dan Pryor a local San Diego tattoo artist at Seven Seas tattoo.  Terry Ribera originally started the tattoo while working at Avalon Tattoo II, but has since completed nearly half the work while at his new shop in North Park.  Dan and Terry have known each other for nearly 7 years and worked together at Seven Seas at one point.  Dan had explained to Terry Nearly a year ago that he wanted his back to be tattooed in a large Japanese theme of a dragon, water, flowers and some fire.  Terry was eager to take on the project as it’s challenge he has not had the chance to tackle and the fact that it was on a fellow tattooer made this project even more exciting.  There was some cover up issues with design and some older tattoos to work around, but so far the tattoo is shaping up well.  We will have to thank Dan for Sitting like a rock and pushing through a lot of sensitive areas while getting his tattoo worked on.  After many of the sessions Dan had to return to work the next day and we are sure that in itself was no easy task.

Ian flew down from Canada to San Diego to get tattooed by Terry Ribera at Remington tattoo last week.  He sat for 2 days in a row to have his sleeve outlined and colored and this is the result of two hard days of work.  Terry Ribera and Ian will be finishing up the tattoo at this years 2011 Body Art Expo, where they plan to do another 2 days of tattoo to finish the tattoo.  Each sitting lasted around 4.5 hours and the follow up sittings in november should be close to the same.  It’s always an honor for Terry to tattoo a client that is willing to travel such a great distance to get tattooed.
