Terry Ribera and St. Michael at San Diego's best tattoo shop Remington Tattoo

Terry Ribera had a chance to wrap up this tattoo late one night about 3 weeks ago at San Diego’s Remington Tattoo.  Mike and Terry have been picking away at this tattoo for a few months a long with other projects Mike had.  This is the result of patience and a little bit of blood and sweat.  Mike and Terry Got to enjoy slices of Lefty’s pizza in between sessions to help give them fuel to finish the large custom color tattoo.

Buddha tattoo done by Terry Ribera at San Diego’s best tattoo shop Remington Tattoo

Buddha tattoo done by Terry Ribera at San Diego's best tattoo shop Remington Tattoo

This was another really cool tattoo done by Terry Ribera at San Diego’s best little tattoo shop, Remington Tattoo.  Remington Tattoo is a custom based tattoo Shop owned by Terry Ribera.  This tattoo was one of the first tattoos started and completed at the new shop.  Terry Ribera has been tattooing here in San Diego for nearly 11 years and opened the doors to Remington Tattoo In July 2011.  The theme of the tattoo is based on a Buddha with other elements that can be found in Japanese tea Gardens.  The layout of the tattoo is bold and simple, which is Terry’s ideal layout for a tattoo.  Terry pushes clients to collect their tattoos in a way that will hold up well and age nicely over time.  This tattoo is also a cover up of an older tattoo.  There was a leo symbol that is no longer visible as it was successfully covered by the new tattoo.

Day of the Dead Tattoo at San Diego’s Remington Tattoo by Terry Ribera

Day of the Dead Tattoo at San Diego's Remington Tattoo by Terry Ribera

 

Here’s a fun tattoo done by Terry Ribera at Remington tattoo in San Diego. We had the best time tattooing this theme on Lana. She’s a long time client and collector of tattoos. Being so close to Mexico, San Diego is known for the common day of the dead theme. Terry Ribera had a great opportunity to tattoo this design which was originally drawn for another project. Some time had gone by when Lana decided to take interest in the design and we made it into a tattoo for her.

Thank you Karen.

Thank you Karen.

Karen flew out from Chicago to get tattooed today.  We spent about three hours lining and shading this portion of her custom tattoo.  We will be adding color over two sessions in July to finish this tattoo up.  The tattoo is based on Lakshmi, a hindu Godess.  Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of wealth, prosperity (both material and spiritual), light, wisdom, fortune, fertility, generosity and courage.

Biomechanical Skull Cover up.

This tattoo was a huge undertaking, we covered up a pretty botched tattoo of a women and a lotus that spanned the entire side of Tod’s ribs  Luckily Tod wanted a subject that is ideal for cover ups, a skull and some biomechanical tattooing.  Certainly I love drawing this type of stuff, but a cover up is a cover up.  We still plan to do a final pass on this tattoo to tighten some details and help ensure that the cover up will hold up well.

We finally finished this cool bio-organic flower, fractal tattoo on Mike. He was a pleasure to work with and maybe some day I will get a chance to do some more work on him 😉  This is Mikes first and only tattoo, you might know him from the VH1 reality show Rock n’ Roll Fantasy Camp. We wrapped up our final Session this May at Memoir Tattoo in Los Angeles.  I am now back home in San Diego and I am excited about my new future projects.

Thanks Mike!

Another cool site designed to help the uninformed to be informed.  There are a lot of tattoo forums on the internet, some good, some bad.  This one has unique bridge between the Artist and the Collectors.  There are a lot of informed and experienced people on there and now good forum goes without drama, so be aware.  It’s best if you are new to tattooing to read through some post first.  The crowd can be tough.  Either way it’s a great place to find a new artist, check out cool tattoos and just kill 30 minutes. www.everytattoo.com

For those of you who are seeking to find great tattoos, or just wanting to share your tattoos there’s an interesting blog called  www.inkcover.com there are many sites dedicated to showcasing tattoos, but so many of them do not label or give credit to the artist.  They exist merely as a place for people to steel tattoo images off the internet and take them to their local tattooer.  This site seems like it does the opposite, it’s clearly designed to promote tattooing and custom tattooing in a way that gives credit to the artist.  Anyhow I feel like they where doing a pretty good job of it and I invite many of  you to check it out.
