From Concept To Skin: Leo The Zodiac Lion ♌️ - Inked By Mario RJ Corbin

Leo The Zodiac Lion ♌️ - Inked By Mario RJ Corbin

Whilst waiting for Jesse’s Spartan tattoo to completely heal before continuing we decided to begin finishing up the lower part of his sleeve. The zodiac sign for Leo ♌️ was chosen and in the spirit of the rest of the sleeve, I put this together in a similar mosaic style as before with the Three Fates. Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty, Little Ball of Fur, Purr Purr Purr! If I have to explain it... 😉 If you are looking for a new tattoo do not hesitate to contact us for a consultation today! Nota Bene: The family crest above my Lion was not done by me.

Pacific Coast Octopus Flash Available! Designed By Mario RJ Corbin

Pacific Coast Octopus

A work in progress, I have been working on putting together a Kraken for a client but inevitably found myself lost in this lovely fella. Inspiration was taken from several sources. Far from the Kraken he was intended to be, inevitably he decided to choose to be a gentle giant. But don’t let his demeanour fool you - he can be protective when called upon. If you are in the market for a wise pacific coast octopus contact me today! Otherwise, book a consultation if you would like to discuss creating something uniquely yours.

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

For Sparta - Part Deux!

We began part two of Jesse’s Spartan tattoo! Inspired by the movie 300, this piece is not unlike paint by numbers. 😉 This is part 2 of possibly 4 sessions as the detail and colour work alone is taking a while. Suffice it to say I am looking forward to seeing this completed as it promises to be rather fierce. If you are looking for a new tattoo do not hesitate to contact us for a consultation today!

About Mario RJ Corbin -Tattoo Artist

www.yeoldecocktattooemporium.com

If you had told me twenty years ago that I would become a tattoo artist, let alone own my own studio, I would have thought you were crazy. Whilst I don't regret completing my university degrees and having a career in academia, I have enjoyed the world of art and tattooing considerably more. From painting murals to tattooing, becoming a tattooist has freed me in more ways than words can express. It has helped me find a sense of peace.
