Admittedly, this blog and its maintainer have eclectic tastes. "Eclectic," as you might suspect, is a nice way of saying that there is very little intertwining theme to any of this. If you end up liking some (or most) of the things I like, you might find that wondrous.

I seek to post only items which are credited to the originator, be it fine art, photography, tattoos, or writing. If you see something uncredited, do feel free to point it out to me. Also: ask anything. Call me out if I fuck up. Give props if you feel like it. Ask questions. I like internet interaction.

I’d seen the top photo floating around for a LONG time, but never wanted to post it until I found the source. Finally, finally found it tonight. I was  browsing Tattooist Art Magazine on Facebook, and they had the photo up with the artist listed as Andrey Flerko. There wasn’t a link for him, so I searched around some more. He doesn’t seem to have a work site, but I found some more photos (the tattoo is done on his wife, Elena Provornaya). If anyone knows a work link for him, please let me know.

whoa yes

YES THANK YOU. I looked all over the place, asked my partner if he recognized the work — no dice. Excited, thank you.

Did I post this? My new Jensen baby.

My boyfriend has the talents.


I love the colors. This is beautiful. 

Ok, this is weird: I do an image search on this tattoo because I know who the illustrator is (Henry Darger), but I also want to credit the tattooer and photographer… And the tattoer is my friend, Mel. Which makes me love the tattoo (and Mel) even more. You can see more photos from this same trip here, and oh yeah, the photographer is a Flickr friend of mine, likely from knowing Mel.

The internet is so strange.
