Panthers have been a staple in American traditional tattoos for a long time, but they can also be done in many other styles such as neo traditional, realism, black and grey, and new school.
Panthers are powerful animals, and make for a powerful tattoo. They can represent, power, strength, honor, wisdom, and beauty.
Panthers were most popular with sailors and prison inmates, up until the Vietnam war when they became popular with soldiers as well. Now they are more popular than ever as American traditional designs are still going strong.
Bartholomew J. Simpson, son to Homer and Marge of the Simpson family. KNown for his quick wit, pranks, and one liners.Bart’s character of rebelliousness and lack of respect for authority have had him described as an updated and modern version of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. He is a disruptive student at school, and often causes trouble for his teachers, the principal, and the grounds keeper.
Although Bart is a prankster he has a soft spot for his family, particularly his siblings.
He is often seen with a skateboard, a slingshot, or candy!
Bart can get up to some pretty bad behaviour, but ultimately isn’t a bad kid. He likes having fun (sometimes at other peoples expense) but on a number of occasions he shows true remorse for his actions.
In some of the Treehouse of Horror episodes, Bart is seen as a monster, such as the fly, zombie, gremlin, devil and more.
As a tattoo Bart is most often done in American traditional, neo traditional, and blackwork style.
Brando Chiesa is a “pastel gore” artist based out of Florence, Italy.
Brando’s work features a whole lot of pink, yet still manages to be terrifying.
He mixes graphic imagery, mainly from anime shows and movies, with pastel colours. Along with anime (some hentai) and manga, Brando also takes inspiration from Japanese mythology and folklore.
His designs are mainly either sexy or terrifying. Featuring lots of anime women in tight clothing, and creatures and monsters you wouldn’t want to meet in real life.
Brando does do some darker colour work but the vast majority of it is pastel. His darker work has more of a neo traditional look to it, while the pastel pieces are a bit of a mix of neo traditional and hyperrealism.
Brando is a must see artist for your anime/manga needs!
