These are the last remaining canvases i have on my website - davetattoos.bigcartel.com - handmade acrylic and spray on canvas - 24”x36” inches (two feet by three feet). check out the product description for more information. thank you for the support.
First run of large canvases to be made in 2018. i took advantage of the break in inclement weather to make these happen. i fear i won’t have another chance unless i move this operation indoors somewhere. these will be available for purchase on the webstore tonight at 6pm eastern standard time (link is in my bio) davetattoos.bigcartel.com - as i take a break from tattooing, these canvases are now a chief source of my income... so supporting this is as important to me as booking a tattoo, if not more. they make great decor for your home or studio. they are two feet by three feet (24”x36”) and are done with acrylic spray paint and fluid acrylics. they are gallery wrapped canvases - painted trim on the sides, and sealed with a uv matte varnish. i will have a couple of other circular canvases not pictured here on the webstore as well. shipping for these will happen next week - insured and tracked via ups - to the united states only (please refrain from commenting on how upset you are that these won’t go to zanzibar - i simply cannot ensure a safe and economic delivery outside of the united states). previously i had charged way too little on shipping costs, sometimes including it in the prices, and i was eating heavy cost deductions because of how intense it is to safely pack these... so the shipping prices you see are exactly at cost through ups. this is to ensure the safety of your investment in transit. and to be honest - i’ve seen these paintings fetch more than what i’ve been charging for them on the aftermarket... and it’s safe to say that it’s worth the costs. i appreciate the support you’ve all given me to make this transition to a more non-tattoo based living. and as long as i can keep this engine running, i’ll keep creating and sharing. thank you to everyone who tuned into these pieces being made as well. it meant a lot to see the interest from so many in my progress.
Denver - put down the blunt, clean the cheetos cheddar residue off your faces, make sure your your paycheck cleared your bank accounts and head on down to @crema_dnvr to check out my dude @santeeattack and his friend @samparkerartist art show this saturday - january 13th. i’ve been privileged to work with scott over the last 8 years and he’s influenced me greatly on tattooing cleaner, designing more thoughtfully, and painting larger. and i’d love for all of you other art aficionados and practitioners to go see why. dude absolutely rips it at any medium he touches, and i’m very glad he’s my dude. mention to him that you saw this here, and he’ll give you a complimentary high five with your sticky w**d hands. he’s the best!
Rest in peace to @mikefite - dude was funny as hell from the few times i got to hang with him. he made very, very nice tattoos. it always sucks to hear about such solid people in tattooing going too soon, and that’s putting it very lightly. there aren’t any words to describe it. peace to all of my friends that were close with him, peace to his loved ones and coworkers @goldclubelectrictattoo and may his memory and body of work live on 🙏🏻
Last tattoo of the year on alex - it’s a coverup of an oni mask - lots of fun. be careful tonight dudes and dudettes... especially in the northeast. we’ve got like 5 degree weather and it hurts outside.
I did more than you last year. i did more than you this year. and i’ll do more than you next year... god willing. i know this post may come off like i have zero humility... but i’m aware of my work ethic. i’m aware of the vast majority of people who front like they work hard. and this is aimed at those fools. as long as my heart keeps beating, and my hands still move - i’ll keep making more than you. f**k last year. f**k this year. and f**k next year. divisions in man-made time don’t mean shit. stay safe this weekend while you’re all celebrating the number change. ✌🏻
