Did you just get that special tattoo that you’ve always wanted? It looks great now, but how can you keep it bright and bold for many years to come? While some fading over time is natural and to be expected, one of the saddest things ever is premature fading of beautiful work due to neglect [...]
In light of the upcoming movie being released this weekend, check out Adal’s Great Gatsby book cover themed tattoo. The book’s original cover piece was done by artist Francis Cugot.
Keith Haring was a street artist and social activist primarily during the 1980s whose work centered around expressing concepts of birth, death, sex and war. He has inspired many artists and has even been a huge influence to Adal when he met Keith Haring in 1989 which you can read more about here.

Before getting tattooed, it’s important to consider how the areas of the body behave during and after the tattoo process. Some body parts hurt more, take ink differently, are more difficult to cover for work, or wear away faster than other parts. We’ve compiled a list of commonly tattooed areas of the body and important [...]

Visiting New York City for the first time and wondering where you can find things to do that aren’t your typical tourist traps?

Tattoo reality shows have been around for a while now and have helped bring an oversimplified, commercialized version of tattoo culture into the mainstream. Some of these shows have been better than others – the information they provide varies in accuracy and the quality of the tattoo work done on these shows is at times [...]
The holidays are here and we all know what that means: Christmas shopping.

Well this holiday season Majestic can help you avoid all the trouble. Majestic is now offering gift [...]
We’ve recently come across a few videos on youtube that claim they can teach you how to tattoo. THIS IS NONSENSE! While youtube is a useful learning supplement for plenty of things, tattooing is just not one of them. TV shows that streamline the process of tattooing are bad enough, making it seem like every [...]

It’s well known that the prices and quality of a tattoo can vary. It seems to be, in 2012, that the average rate across America is $150 an hour with custom work from more popular, more talented artists fetching as much as $250 an hour, if not more. It’s hard to believe in today’s economy [...]
New York City offers so much to the students that inhabit its streets and now Adal wants to offer the same.

Fractal Tattoo Artwork Fractals – visual patterns based on naturally occurring mathematical alogrithms. The self-replicating forms can be found on earth as in space, squinted at under a microscope as through a telescope. And they’re beautiful. Adal has been creating fractals, on canvas, paper, and skin, since he started making art. For him, the pull [...]
Adal: pronounced “ah-dell,” a common nickname of “Adalberto.” It’s the same way singer-songwriter Adele says her name, which is perhaps why you were tempted to write “ele” the first time you sang Adal’s praises in that letter to your friend about your new tattoo. (We may not be belting ballads on the radio, but we [...]
Can’t wait to finish this lily sleeve. Really excited about this experiment with organic fractal forms! Just added color to this sleeve! Round one of two on this condor wing chest tattoo.
