Traditional Rose Tattoo Design Timelapse in Procreate.

Traditional rose tattoos design
Timelapse video of a tattoo design I did of a traditional rose in my own style with my own custom palette of colors. Unfortunately my Apple Pencil is out of commission so I pretty much did this all with my finger. I think it’s a bit more impressive that way but whatever.

Company of Wolves

Company of wolves2.I have been trying my damnedest to keep most of my newer my artwork secret lately, that way whenever I come out with my sketchbook for publication, all my followers on Tumblr, Facebook or whatever haven’t already seen or tattooed everything in the book.
However, I scanned in the first real piece of flash for the book and I just thought I would share: I can’t wait to paint this piece later today.

FRIDAY THE 13th TATTOOS

I had a great Friday the 13th flash day at Underground Art yesterday. I seriously love these days and thanks to everybody that came out and supported local artists. These are the tattoos that I remembered to photograph but if I did one on you and it isn’t featured here shoot me a picture if it and I’ll add it to my story on Instagram

YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR

I’m just gonna leave this right here with some of my work versus someone who copied my work. I did this tattoo about 10 years ago on a friend of mine and have seen countless copies of it on the internet. I’m not trying to be cocky here, but you get what you pay for and when I do a tattoo, I’m gonna do my best work every time. My clients are paying for the 17+ years of tattooing experience I have as well as the countless hours of my own time I have spent drawing, designing and creating art. That is time I have invested into my own career outside of my tattooing time. I take my tattoos very seriously and if it’s something that I don’t feel like I would be able to do a phenomenal job on, I have no problem referring my clients to an artist that I believe would. Tattoos are a luxury, and trust me, I understand they’re expensive. I get tattooed just like y’all and I’m in no way balling outta control however before you settle for something cheaper keep this image in mind. This is my job and any tattoo I do will be my best work and I’ve been able to make a living out of it almost 18 years. This isn’t my side gig or my hobby, this is how I pay my bills and continue to do so with the help of my clients wherever they may be who appreciate the effort I put into doing quality tattoos.

NEW FLASH SHEET.

FLASH SHEET. BY BOBBY ROTTEN 2019.

Hey kids. So while I’m out in Memphis tattooing at Underground Art and I figured since I’m a stranger in town I would draw up some designs of things I would absolutely love to tattoo. So if you see anything that you would like to get tattooed on this page shoot me an email to bobbyrottentattoos@icloud.com or shoot me a text to 657-666-1313 and I’ll be more than happy to set you up with an appointment to make one of these designs a permanent fixture on your skin. Also check back on my site all this week for pieces that I’m wanting to do badly and would be willing to do for a flat rate.

NO APPOINTMENTS WILL BE MADE WITHOUT A DEPOSIT

TATTOOS: Updated Tattoo Portfolio Slideshow

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I finally got around to updating my portfolio slideshow. It’s insane the thousands of photos of tattoos I have done in my Dropbox that I just sorted through, so I just selected all of them and tried to take out as many duplicates as I could.
Please share this page! Also, I am on the lookout for anyone who is currently seeking a new artist or is looking to get some work done in the DMV area. Please have them contact me through email: bobbyrotten666@gmail.com
I appreciate all of my clients and friends who support my art and keep a roof over my head. You guys rock!
Much love,
Bobby Rotten

In the Company of Wolves

Company of wolves2.

I have been trying my damnedest to keep most of my newer my artwork secret lately, that way whenever I come out with my sketchbook for publication, all my followers on Tumblr, Facebook or whatever haven’t already seen or tattooed everything in the book already.
However, I scanned in the first real piece of flash for the book earlier and thought I would share: I can’t wait to paint this piece later today.

Meeting of the Marked

Yep, I am officially excited.
Everything is finalized and I will be attending and tattooing at the Meeting of the Marked tattoo convention in Pittsburgh, PA from Friday, Oct. 29 – Sunday, October 31.
I am sharing a booth with an amazing artist that I look up to and I am already pretty booked up for tattoos, however if you are a close friend of mine I should be able to fit you in for a small tattoo or so.
As everybody already knows, I am from Pittsburgh and haven’t tattooed in that area since I was a mere apprentice when I was 19, so it will be a very interesting and fun visit.
I am really looking forward to seeing all my friends, family and tattoo associates and can’t wait to do lay some sick ink in my hometown, as well as learn as much as I can from the seminars offered there.

If you are interested in getting a tattoo from me in Pittsburgh give me a call at (240) 498-6527 before October 15th.
