tariq sabur

Aaaw! I came across this while I was updating my portfolio and could not help re- uploading this photo. This is the kind of thing I love to show to people who say " you cant" to tattoos that are too bright, to blended, or too detailed. This is my freind Diane. She has always beeen huge supporter of Fine Art For Bodies.She got this tattoo at a *undisclosed location* waaaaay back in 2009, and this phot was the spring of 2013. Still looking brilliant and subtle and awesome. The old sayings DO hold: Bold will hold, and simple is better. But cleanliness and quality of craftsmanship, and TIME invested, and care taken will go a long way. Make sure you rad your artists' aftercare instructions and FOLLOW them. (Mine are at www.fineartforbodies.com/aftercare, but you follow YOUR artist's instructions.) Technology and technique in tattoos has evolved a million times* in the past 10 years, as has both the social acceptance of tattoos in general, and the aesthetic, the knowledge of, and acceptance of what a tattoo looks like long term, and how it is supposed to age. I have a strong theory that tattoos done since 2005 will last WAY longer and neater and cleaner than those done, healed, and abused with less evolved methods back in the 50's. Heck that was back before they even "invented bacteria." -Philadelphia Eddy, "Hori Smoku" Documentary. lol!! But even if they don't, I have confidence in the thought that, WE as grandparents are going to be twisted and gnarled, and faded, and weathered, and BEAUTIFUL. And so will our tattoos.

“Uplift” A 2009 Painting, this sat in my studio for some years before I looked at and asked why isnt this hanging somewhere? It is currently for sale at Snoh. I find it so interesting how we can create and then totally disregard something, and only later realize the value of it… I work in...

Gentleman bug

Super proud of the progress on this carefully reproduced rendition of “Echinacea” by the amazing surrealist Esao Andrews. Many have attempted to reproduce his remarkable color work in tattoo form. I am lucky enough to have a client who has the patience and dedication to sit through the time and care that it takes to re-create...

A 3D Filigree Frame

I originally received the request for this tattoo some months ago from my good friend looking for a way to frame the Persian calligraphy on his bicep… I was stumped due to the vertical layout and irregular silhouette of the characters… But for some reason, this day we came in and I had a GREAT...

MEDUSA’S REVENGE

I painted this painting live at a spectacular fashion runway show. Then I played with photoshop until this poster came out. It was fun. Now I’m sleepy. lol Many more photos to come – the fashion show was spectacular.

APESHIT!!

Hehehehe sorry for the title 😉 I had the opportunity to participate in the most INCREDIBLE art show last weekend at the Historic Icehouse venue. With 80 other artists, including painters, sculptors, tattooists, and graffitti artists contending for space, time and attention, my goal was not only to showcase my art, but to make sure...
