If you’re in the neighborhood of Las Vegas, Nevada and itching to add some bold and dynamic comic book art to your skin, take a break from the casinos and see Steve Rieck. The tattooist is a nerd and has inked all sorts of takes on your favorite characters from Marvel and DC comics. His art features likeness inspired by both the page and by actors in live-action films. The colors are so bright it’s like the characters were transferred from comic book to skin. This Deadpool ink is just one example:
See a few more examples of Steve’s work in the gallery just below. You’ll see a rather epic comic book sleeve (the word epic truly applies), Green Lantern, and The Joker immortalized in ink. You can keep up with all his tattoos by following him on Instagram and/or Facebook. Get in touch with him at the Collective Tattoo Parlor in Las Vegas if you’d like to work with him on some permanent body art.
If you have geeky ink or you’re a tattooist that’s applied a lot of pop culture-inspired ink, then please hit me up because I’d like to showcase you in a future Inked Wednesday gallery. Just get in touch with me via email at [email protected] Send photos of your tattoos or your work, and let me know the name of your tattoo artist if you have it as well as which shop he or she works in.
