One of the foremost respected online art galleries that sells original art and collectible prints by stellar tattoo artists is Raking Light Projects, a company owned and operated by veteran tattooer Eddy Deutsche and Andrew Fingerhut.
As I wrote in our post on Raking Light back in 2012, around the time of its launch, select artists are invited to create artwork exclusively for Raking Light Projects. All prints are produced in limited numbers, and select originals are also available for purchase on the site.
Prints include artwork by Eddy himself, as well as those created by tattoo artists who include Chad Koeplinger, Jondix, Virginia Elwood, Thomas Hooper, and Horizakura, among many others.
For our Holiday Gift Guide, I chose to feature a couple of my favorites by Alex Binnie, famed tattooer/owner of Into You Tattoo, and printmaker. The "Calypso" and "Freddy [Corbin]" prints, shown above, are 24" x 32" serigraphs on Magnani Incisioni paper, printed as an artist-embossed single edition of 100, respectively, and come with signed Certificates of Authenticity. The print price for each is $100.
For me, the varied price points are an outstanding feature of Raking Light, making high quality prints accessible to art lovers with different budgets; some prints are as low as $60.

Tattoos 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.
If you can't make it to the art show, you can purchase prints and cards of some of the works from her new online store. Ok, here's where the gift guide part comes in with a smooth transition.
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.
