davetattoos @brandondavidtattooer won tattoo of the day at hell city today. If you get a chance to see the amazing tattoo he did on this fellow's stomach, you'll know why it won. It's never gonna look bad, lines were bold and dramatic, the color was solid and the design was fucking clever and on point. Congrats dawg, best tattoo I seen in person in a while! 2d

davetattoos Seven years ago I attended my first Hell City. I was pretty green to tattooing and I saw a lot of crazy shit, and it blew my mind. I aspired to want to tattoo at that show so bad. I wanted to be in the arena with dudes of that caliber. I spent all my weekend money on getting in and buying some bottles of pigment and tried to watch everyone I could like a fucking creep. It made it clear what I had to do. Fast forward to today, and having participated in 5 Hell City's - and I'm having a fucking art show here. This convention is one of my favorite ever, and it's held in the city I cut my teeth in this game. Thanks @durbmorrison for letting me be a part this year, yet again. It means a lot. 4d

davetattoos I was asked what motivates me tonight to work like I do. Hate. 100% pure unrivaled and unbridled fucking hatred. I hate being some fucking useless piece of shit. I hate not bringing shit to the table. I hate the people that haven't fucking worked 10% as hard as me but reap 300% of the rewards in this fucking business. I hate the people that make excuses for not working their fucking asses off, but bitch about not being busy. I hate the people that high-five me in public but talk down when they're in the comfort of their own yes-men friends. That's what motivates me - because when the day is done, you can't take that from me. You can't undo my hard work. It's tangible, and is there. Irrefutable. Here's another I cranked out tonight. Goodnight y'all. 5d

davetattoos A sneak peak before all the Hell City craziness. The only way to procure one of these originals is to be at Hell City. I cannot do any pre-sales of these because I want to give a fair chance to all the people who travel out for such a big convention like this. I am also not tattooing at this convention. I'm enjoying my time with my lady, hanging with my colleagues, having lots of fun, judging contests, and meeting new faces. So if you've emailed about the show and haven't been responded to - with all of the craziness and such - that is why. Sorry for the confusion. I'm looking forward to this weekend. #hellcity 6d
