David Hale appreciation time. Not only does this dude rock his super polished and developed personal style, he’s found enough success and respect in his field that he can get away with charging whatever his client feels comfortable paying. He’s booked right through to 2014, and in the face of his booming success he decided that after the minimum $100 deposit he would allow his clients to pay what they felt he deserved and just trust in their respect for him and his art, which is an astoundingly bold and generous move on his part.
I’d really love to get something from this guy someday, he just seems like he’s reached such an elevated level of trust in himself and his clients and really cares about the artform.
French artist Xoil has a characteristic tattooing style that looks like he has stamped, stenciled, or drawn directly with a felt-tip pen on his clients’ bodies.

I love this. And is it just the lighting or is this done in blue? I’m so used to seeing this type of stuff done in just blackwork. The blue is stunning.
