Here's a new piece that Matt sketched up and tattooed the other week. Matt worked with his client for awhile on this one, drawing everything into place, moving things around, and adding in some stylized bars of light into the background. This piece is a strong example of Matt's style: a sort of illustrative realism which integrates light line-work with soft blends, concentrated blacks, and restricted areas of color. He's alway
Molly just finished up this black and grey angel and demon back piece the other week. Molly comes from a strong figure-drawing background and put in a lot of leg-work on the drawing for this piece. After numerous anatomical studies and sketches, Molly got her drawing finalized and tattooed it all in there. Molly's always a champ with any black and grey work, figurative pieces, or anything illustrative so m
Recently Natan finished up a variety of new work, ranging from religious pieces to traditional Japanese. This detailed cross with rosary beads focuses on tight, crisp details, a subtle use of green highlights, and a smooth organic flow, as directed by the motion of the rosary beads. Although this was certainly a subject matter that Natan has covered extensively in his work, he was able to find a way to push this piece in a different direction
Natan recently got the chance to design and tattoo this black and grey spade of skulls piece on a repeat client of his. Given a brief description and a loose sketch of his client's general idea, Natan hit the ground running and came up with the following tattoo:
Natan was happy for the chance to do some more custom work on one of his collectors and friends, Chris Tango. Chris has been coming to get tattooed by Natan at Witch City Ink and Lightwave Tattoos for a couple of years now and has a numbe
r of Natan pieces decorating his arms. Since he already has a number of realistic black and grey skeletal type pieces, Chris opted for the more graphic and bold design of this tattoo and was thrilled with the result.

Everyone here at the shop relishes the opportunity to work on any project involving skulls. Call us predictable (seeing as how we are in the middle of Salem), but nothing beats a good skull tattoo! However, Molly recently discovered that the only thing cooler than skeleton tattoos are black and grey, conjoined-twin, fetal skeleton tattoos! Check out her work below and make sure to give us a ring if you have any creative ta
Natan has been working away on a whole new crop of work lately. Check out the following pieces he has recently finished up:
Cock fight backpiece
Big and bold, this backpiece on the friendly Will Means speaks for itself; an old fashioned cock fight! All black and grey with an attention to line density, repeating patterns and varying textures, this piece was just finished up the other week.
Tribal Battle Axe
Steve Johnson soldiered through this large tribal battle axe piece on his ribs in one long sitting from Natan. Check out the soft black 'n grey shading lending a bit of a sculptural and three dimensional shape to the organic patterns.
In addition to all of the projects Natan has been finishing up lately, he also has a number of multiple-session, larger pieces in the works. Check out some of his progress shots from a handful of his repeat customers below:
At 85 years old, Colorful Bill is still chipping away at a full-body suit. Sporting a whole lot of work from Natan, Bill has become quite a regular at the shop, swinging by every week or so to hang out, chat, and usually book up some more time. Here's a peek at the latest work he's gotten.
Tribal with skull
A returning client with large sections of bold tribal work from Natan, John stopped by the other day to add in some more stuff. You can never go wrong with skulls, ever.
In progress for only the last month or so, this koi half-sleeve is steadily approaching completion. Utilizing fundamentals of traditional Japanese designs for the foundation of this tattoo, Natan has been having a blast exploring different avenues of color theory and design to customize this piece.
Natan is currently booking out for any medium to large, creative, custom pieces, so give us a call at 978 744 9393 or stop on by the shop and we'll get you a spot on the schedule today!
