10 000 Ways to Draw a Skull

by Hugh Upsher / 30.01.2013

Walking into a tattoo convention without being tattooed yourself is like going to a whiskey festival as a teetotaler. So the least I could do was go with the intent of getting inked. And as with a whiskey festival, you expect to see the cream of the crop on display. Less faded dolphins jumping over star signs, More full sleeve ‘body art’ of koi fish swimming around Mexican sugar skulls.

    Very good Hugh…

    How the arrival of the hipster has ruined ink for all… and great for tattoo removalists as most must feel like right muppets now!

    Yay,

    The tattoo mentioned at the end is mine. Let me know if you’d like a photo of what it looked like when it was done…

    Haha awesome, especially the pillows. Reading this made me feel like I was there, and not really bummed that I wasn’t. Though I did have a fun chat with that Bully guy last year.

    I really enjoy your drawings, it is such a cool take on an event. Makes me want to pick up my sketch pad again and take it everywhere.
