Tengu sleeve

January 17, 2013 § 1 Comment

Here is a Tengu sleeve i have in progress. i’m working around some old tattoos but they are not too badly in the way to create a bad roadblock. Tengu is a mythical japanese creature of folklore. Its basicly a Ninja. A bird ninja that is found in the woods to keep it simple. This gentleman studies Ninjistu and is excited and interested in these ancient tales of action, So we communicate well. This will be a traditional 3 1/4 length sleeve when complete. Thanks for having interest in my work and taking the time to look.

Thom Devita

Had the pleasure of spending some time with The Legendary NYC underground artist Tom Devita last night and see his art show at my old friend Mike Rubendall’s Tattoo Gallery “Kings Avenue”. It was a great turn out and the support and love the tattoo community has given this aging Legend and folk art giant was overwhelming. Everyone happily did their part to give back to tattoo history as me and my peers stand on the shoulders of giants like this.
TRADITION FOREVER!
