subject: a question/ tatoo

dear sir

today I met this man, who came to fix my car.
when I saw his arm, tattoed , I did ask him the meaning of the word and he said: this is the name of his son, called: João Victor (something like John Victor in English)

Is he right? I don´t think so....

best regards

dulce



It is completely gibberish, not even correct with the gibberish font.

I did a really fun/funny small tattoo on my friend Steve this morning, but the photos were all out of focus and crap... Second appointment today was Lindsay's hot air balloons.  A few touch ups and healed photos and we can call it done.

Kurtis was the first Canadian to break the 8 minute mark in the 800 freestyle swim which was 7:58.63 back in 2003.  Pretty cool... I can't say I've ever come close to setting a world record in any sporting discipline, and most likely never will...

My friend Andrew was in town for the holiday season and wanted to book an appointment, so I tattooed this small memorial for one of his dogs today.

Hope everyone had a good Christmas yesterday.  According to my Instagram feed... I had a few drinks over the last few days... back to work tomorrow...

MANUEL "MASTER" SERVIN - GODOY MACHINES



Master... using the Godoy Machines - V3 Model

Manuel Isaias Aceves Servin - known officially as: xmasterx, was born in Guadalajara Jalisco, Mexico May 27, 1983. Since he was a kid, he'd always shown great aptitude in drawing... as an adolescent, this art went hand in hand with his playing in a hardcore band and being exposed to heavily tattooed people and the inspiration to learn technique and involve himself in the art.



Through friends, Master met Richi Michel, who at 11 years of tattooing had gained international recognition for his world class tattooing ability. Master bought his first machine right then and there and took a self taught approach for the following 6 months before having job offers and an official apprenticeship from Richi Michel.



In the Richi Tattoo studio he was exposed to the work of Javier Kuatom & Martin Zapo, whose influence helped to direct and to shape Master's career and ability. After 4 years, he operates Blackline Tattoo and travels to national and international conventions entering contests and winning.



REALISM... A TRUE UNDERSTANDING OF TECHNIQUE...





A REAL UNDERSTANDING OF COLOR, BALANCE AND COMPOSITION...





DYNAMIC LINE THICKNESS, COMBINED WITH SMOOTH EVEN GREYS...



COMBINED WITH CONTRASTING DARKS... MAKE FOR PERFECT TATTOOS.



We proudly sponsored Master for machines at The Guadalajara tattoo convention where he tied for first place for tattoo of the day. He followed up this win with a few more first places in Mexico City 2 months later! This is a track record that can't be beat...



GODOY MACHINES -SUPPORTING THE ARTS, SUPPORTING THE ARTISTS WHO EXCEL IN THE ARTS, SUPPORTING EDUCATION AND CONTINUING INNOVATION.

SCRAPPY UNO! GODOY MACHINES PROFESSIONAL.


TRYING TO BRING SCRAPPY TO FUNHOUSE!

Scrappy Uno is DAVID GARCIA, Mexico's premier portrait / black n grey tattoo artist. We have been going to Mexico for conventions for the last 10 years and at most of these conventions, one name keeps winning repeatedly in the black and grey and realism competitions - "Scrappy".

We award a machine to the winner of the best realism events at the conventions we attend and as Scrappy kept on winning year after year, convention after convention, so we decided one day to just hand him the machine because he "would have won anyway".. and he did. Since then he has been sponsored by Godoy Machines.


We are proud to manufacture and promote the "Scrappy" model machine.

FOR LEFT OR RIGHT HANDED TATTOO ARTISTS, THE SCRAPPY MODEL FEATURES:
STAINLESS STEEL DUAL TOP AND MILD STEEL BOTTOM SUBFRAMES ARE SUPPORTED BY HIGH SENSITIVITY EASY SATURATION SQUARE SUPPORT COILS. (Patent pending). THIS MACHINE'S COILS, SPRING GAUGES AND COMPONENTS COMBINE TO PRODUCE INCREMENTALLY SENSITIVE RESPONSE. THE SCRAPPY UNO IS A TRULY VERSATILE MACHINE, UNIVERSALLY TUNED TO HANDLE THE REQUIREMENTS OF ANY TECHNIQUE.
Scrappy has appeared in several magazines and television programs world wide.
These are only a few of the awards he has won.
Below is a gallery of some of his work. Perfectly even and smooth subtle grey washes require skill and understanding of technique as well as a well tuned machine. The understanding of machine components and function will facilitate this type of trajectory.







HOW DO YOU COMPARE? DO YOU WANT TO REFINE YOUR SKILL? DO YOU WANT UNDERSTAND COMPLETELY HOW TO REACH THIS LEVEL, IN TATTOOING AND IN MACHINE UNDERSTANDING? OR WOULD YOU RATHER RECOGNIZE YOURSELF AS MEDIOCRE... YOU GET BACK WHAT YOU PUT IN.

BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION.
