Tattoo Sprout: A 10-yr-old's Tattoo Blog
I've featured the wild and wonderful tattoos of Kristel Oreto of Crimson Anchor tattoo here before, but today I get to write about her greatest work of art: her daughter Angel who has created one of my new favorite blogs called Tattoo Sprout.
As Angel explains, Tattoo Sprout is about tattoo life, art, and the industry from a kid's perspective, with the ultimate goal of writing her first book about it all. She just recenty posted a profile on tattoo artist Jeremy Miller of Pigment Dermagraphics in Austin, TX. Here's a taste:
"Jeremy's style is a blend of New Skool and Realism. New Skool is a cartoonish style of tattooing and realism is photo realistic. His style is very popular among his clients. He likes things that can laugh at while he does the tattoo. He tattooed a chick-fil-a sandwich with fancy sauce on my mom's butt. I'm sure he had to get a few laughs out of that! Jeremy's style is very bold and colorful no matter what it is. His work is influenced a lot by Graffiti ( I <3 Graffiti ), cartoony art and from even flat imagery of traditional tattoo style. Most of his clients give him ideas then let him do his thing on the artwork. He has recently started working with textures and colored lines but is most importantly working on line weights. Jeremy WILL NOT do letters, he says he isn't good at them. He WILL NOT do tribal he doesn't like it."
I know! It's awesome, right?!
