Sneak Peek: For Sparta! - Inked By Mario RJ Corbin


We began part three of Jesse’s sleeve today with a tribute to Sparta! Complementing the Three Fates and Medusa, this Spartan was inspired by the movie 300! This is part 1 of 2 as the detail and colour work alone cannot be rushed. Suffice it to say I am looking forward to seeing this completed as it promises to be rather fierce.

From Concept To Skin: “There Is No Try!” - Yoda, Jedi Master - Inked By Mario RJ Corbin

“There Is No Try!” - Yoda, Jedi Master
Using a screensaver of Master Yoda, I put together this rendition of a battle-worn Master Yoda for Chris, a returning client who last received a Star Wars A-Wing tattoo. I wanted Master Yoda to take on a darker appearance and to make both him and his lightsaber feel gritty and weathered. Like Chris’ A-Wing Fighter, years of war has taken its toll on Master Yoda. This was placed on the inside of Chris’ left bicep opposite to his A-Wing and compliments his ongoing Star Wars sleeve quite nicely. All in all, it was the perfect way to spend May the 4th! We have plenty of Star Wars themed flashes available so drop by our new location today or book a consultation. May the force be with you!
