c3po.jpegTattoos aren't the only thing we nerd out about here at the Needles & Sins Compound.  And - despite my extreme loathing of George Lucas for retroactively destroying my childhood with his prequels and "re-releases" - when my love for Star Wars collides with the world of tattooing, I'm as giddy as a schoolgirl.

Motor City illustrator Mark Hammerstein has offered up these great prints in his Etsy shop for just $30!

As an old-school SW fan, I prefer his piss-take on the classic Norman Rockwell illustration (pictured above), but if you're a fan of Sith Lords and tribal tattoos, perhaps you'd like his Darth Maul piece (pictured below).

The signed/numbered prints measure 13x19" and are printed on acid-free paper.

Today's gift guide post is inspired by an upcoming art show so I figured I'd meld the two to present the fabulousness of ...

... Lea Vendetta, tattoo artist, painter, model and -- little known fact -- accordion player.

Next Friday, December 11th from 6-10PM, is the opening of Lea's solo show, Sous Le Soleil Exactement (Exactly Under the Sun) at PreviewMod in Fort Lauderdale, FL. In this exhibition, she will present new works and old favorites of her Art Deco depictions of underworld women, from burlesque performers to painted ladies, as well as sultry couples cavorting on dance floors. A large body of her work pays tribute to her native France, particularly Paris (where Lea once walked the fashion runways), with a Moulin Rouge feel.

The coolest thing about Lea's store is that you are given a number options on how you'd like her work printed with a few clicks. For example, you can order a $7 card, a $40 poster, a $50 matted print, or canvas, mounted and framed prints of various sizes ranging from $80 to $270. Delivery takes 10-15 business days.

If you're interested in Lea's wearable art, check her tattoo gallery. She's currently taking appointments at Altered State Tattoo in Lake Worth, Fl. but also does numerous guest spots across the country throughout the year.
