Whale weirdness

It's been a while since the matryoshka madness post, that i somehow still manage to get a bunch of hits from, and i've been meaning to do more theme tattoo posts for a long time.
But honestly, it takes forever to find a bunch of great tattoos with the same theme, so i've been putting it off.

But a few days ago me and Allan started watching Whale Wars, and after only a few minutes of watching, it became clear to me that i needed to make a whale tattoo post, stat!

So i've been spending the last few days gathering whales off of myspace.
And it's been interesting.
Of course i like to browse the internets for awesome new tattoos and artists when ever i can find the time, but rarely as intense as this.
And i found many other popular designs that'll get their own posts shortly.

But first, the awesome and majestic creatures called whales!

*Allan would like you all to know that he would very much like to do more big whale tattoos, so if you want a big ass whale tattoo, please get in touch (conspiracyinctattoo@gmail.com) in September when we start taking new clients again.
There, babe, you happy?

NB: None of these images belong to me, and i did not take any of the pictures.
If you are the artist behind, or owner of, any of these tattoos, and you for any reason don't want your work published on this blog, just send me and email and i'll take it down right away.
Most images have been found on the artist's myspace pages.

  3. Hej Amalie!

    Jeg fandt din blog sådan lidt ved et tilfælde... Ved ikke, om du kan huske mig, jeg er Saras veninde Anne, der bor i London.

    Anyway, din blog er rigtig fin og hyggelig, og jeg nyder at læse i den. Og din seneste post er 100% relevant for mig, da jeg faktisk igennem meget lang tid har overvejet at få en matryoshka tatovering på min underarm og har fået anbefalet netop Frith Street Tattoo af en sjov lille emo dreng, jeg mødte på toget en dag. Så mange tak!

    Håber dig og Allan har det godt. :)

  5. Tanya, totally loving whale wars, i'm gonna do a post about how much i love it soon!

    Hej Anne, længe siden!!
    Vi har det rigtig godt, tak, håber også det går godt med dig?
    Jeg tror Valerie kunne lave en rigtig fin matryoshka til dig, jeg kender hende ikke personligt, men hendes arbejde er så fint!
    Emo drengen havde ret, hehe!

    Update: of course it just starts raining whales the minute you stop looking, and this morning i found a white one!
    So i added it, cause this post needed a white whale, right?

  8. Jeg har det rigtig godt tak, jeg har fået mig et job, som jeg er rigtig glad for og bruger ellers resten af min tid sammen med min søde kæreste og vores søde små katte. :)

    Det er pudsigt, at du linkede til det gamle indlæg, for jeg har googlet matryoshka tattoos uden held rigtig mange gange (det var dog ikke sådan, jeg fandt din blog, sjovt nok). Og jeg havde faktisk tænkt mig at se, om Valerie kunne lave en fin en til mig, for alt jeg har set, som hun har lavet, har været super fint. Så nu må jeg lige få sparet sammen og tage ind og snakke med hende!

    Jeg har langt om længe skaffet mig min egen blog også (den er dog ikke up and running endnu, den skal lige pyntes lidt!), så der må jeg have billeder op, når tussen er fin og færdig.

    Puha, det blev en helt stil, sorry!

  9. Mik, i did think os including that tattoo, cause i think it's amazing too, but i decided that the picture quality wasn't that great, a little too much contrast maybe, so i decided to go with the narwhale.
    But i agree with you 100%!

    Anne, post et link til din blog når den er klar, jeg vil super gerne se hvad du render og laver (altså på en ikke creepy stalker måde, selvfølgelig!)

    Og bare fyr den af med stilene, jeg kan godt li' lange comments!

  10. Det kan du tro, jeg vil! Meget rart allerede at have en læser på plads, inden bloggen er live, så er der en grund til at gøre sig lidt umage! :)
