johnembrytattoos Last update about this. It's strange knowing so many people have not just seen, but interacted with something I did. It took less than an hour to do this tattoo and yet it dwarfs the numbers I get from paintings and tattoos I put 30+ hours into through multiple sittings, or portraits that take 7+ hours in one shot. I genuinely appreciate that people like it so much, but I prefer the strenuous and detail-heavy work by far. Hopefully detail will be trendy someday. Haha #tattoos #tumblr #theinternetisaweirdplace 3d
  •   troyjrjr this is innovation. people have seen paintings and portraits. all of your work is great John, but something that sticks out and is bold such as this really appeals to the masses. you're a great artist. keep it up. 3d
  •   patrickmcdonagh So sweet john! 3d
  •   johnembrytattoos @troyjrjr maybe I need to find a way to make the detailed innovative and vice versa? I appreciate the sentiment man. 3d
  •   johnembrytattoos @patrickmcdonagh thanks man! It's fuckin crazy 3d

johnembrytattoos Made it to @tattoocharlies before they closed up for the night to check the place out. The walls are covered in original flash from Sailor Jerry, Stony St Clair, Paul Rodgers, et al. Not to mention the cases of antique machines and acetate stencils Charlie collected throughout the years. I'm especially stoked to get working tomorrow with all this history around. #tattoo #louisville 1w
