I’m looking forward to being back at the Philadelphia Tattoo Convention this year. The con is the biggest in the states and is always full of talent, both old and new. Also I’ll be tattooing alongside my partner, @snakeoclock.
We are both currently booking appointments for the show, dates and contact info are below. Give our shop, Witch City Ink a call to schedule and lets make some great art together while we are in the area! 978-744-9393
Philadelphia Tattoo Convention -February 9th-11th 2018
On Friday, Natan completed the second session of a phoenix half-sleeve on one of his traveling clients, Michael. He lives further down the east coast but has now flown to New England twice to have Natan work on his tattoo. Natan has tattooed people from all over the world, and it’s not uncommon for them to make the trip for multiple pieces.
Thanks Michael, we hope to see you for your next session soon!
Like any large tattoo, this back piece has been in progress for a while. Abbey came in armed with jellybeans for a long session on her Mucha-inspired back piece. Rumor has it that this tattoo may be finished by the end of summer, so keep checking back for updates!
We showed you the first session of this Ganesh tattoo right here. It’s still not quite done, but below are the fine results of session number two. Stay tuned for more progress!
What was initially thought to be just the first session of a Ganesh forearm piece, turned into a solid seven hour session that included a coverup. See that Ganesh Yantra there? Before yesterday, there was some old tribal in its place. It was a long day, but both client and artist walked away happy. Thanks, Michael!
Natan has a couple of smaller openings available in December, both at Witch City Ink and Lightwave Tattoo. If you have an existing piece that you want to work on for a couple of hours, or want to get something small done, give the keeper of his schedule a call at 978.744.9393.
This sugar skull and marigold piece fits this client’s back perfectly. It took two sessions, and was finished up yesterday. Thanks, Sarah!
Here are a few smaller pieces, recently completed by Natan.
Firstly, a brightly colored lotus blossom and lettering. “Amor fati” is a Latin phrase loosely translating to “love of fate” or “love of one’s fate.”
Second, a Tibetan double dorje. In Tibetan the word dorje means “indestructible.” The dorje is a spiritual weapon used to banish non-truths and bring in the truth. The dorje is often used in a Tibetan Buddhist ritual, where it is twirled in order to bring in truth.
Third, which perhaps shouldn’t be categorized as a “smaller work,” is a bright shamrock surrounded by traditional elements (such as a clipper ship and swallow) in black and grey.
Natan has limited December availability before he sets off to Japan, and his January is already filling up quickly. If you would like to book an appointment with him, give Witch City Ink a call at 978.744.9393.
