We do however recommend  making appointments far in advance as many of our artists are booked months on in. In short, our shop is all about quality over quantity, industry respect over Hollywood fame, and we make it our daily commitment to uphold and celebrate the art, the tradition and the history of tattoo culture.

In addition, Skin Design was started because of our passion for the art. Far before this became a lucrative industry, we were purveyors of the world’s finest tattoos and it our mission to carry on the tradition to ensure that the art, the culture and the magic is passed on from one generation to the next.

JOAN SEBASTIAN TATTOO

JOAN_SEBASTIAN-PORTRAIT

Joan Sebastian tattoo by Fernie Andrade. 

This memorial tattoo of Joan Sebastian was done by Las Vegas tattoo artist, Mr. Andrade. Mr. Sebastian was the fabled Mexican singer/songwriter who rose from the ranks of a poverty-stricken childhood in Mexico, and became one of the most recorded, acclaimed and best selling acts in Mexico.

Aside from being a musician, Joan Sebastian was an accomplished producer, actor on both television and film but set all those aside and he was known as being one of the best entertainers of our time. Some of his accomplishments include insane Billboard charts, up until his passing.

He charted 10 top 10 sets on Top Latin Albums, including two No. 1s: En Vivo: Desde La Plaza El Progreso De Guadalajara (2001) and 13 Celebrando El 13 (2013), his last studio album.

GREEK THEMED/ STYLE TATTOOS.

fernie-best-bng-tattoo

Zeus & Baby Dionysus

Tattoos, as with any art, have their themes and styles which change in trending ways. At one point, tribal tattoos were all the rage, and I remember a time when pit bulls were perhaps more common than lions. Yet throughout all the changes that we’ve seen, one thing remains certain, and that’s the fact that Greek culture and mythology will always remain a common denominator and a theme that will never go out of style.

There’s something engaging about Greek art. The lines, the simplicity, the ability to show off shading, gradients and shadows makes it a remarkable subject to tattoo and right above is a great example. In this latest piece by Fernie Andrade, he shows a great amount of detail in this portrait of Zeus holding baby Dionysus. It’s a great piece which is still fresh so we’ll have updated pictures once it all heals up.

JOHN CANDY TATTOO

John Candy as “Uncle Buck” tattoo by Fernie Andrade. 

To honor an actor or comedian with a tattoo is the ultimate form of loyalty, and this is exactly what one of our clients did when they decided to pay tribute to comedian John Candy. This tattoo here was inspired by the movie “Uncle Buck”.

In this movie, John Candy stars in this John Hughes comedy as an idle, good-natured bachelor who’s left in charge of his nephew and nieces during a family crisis. Unaccustomed to suburban life, fun-loving Uncle Buck soon charms his younger relatives Miles and Maizy with his hefty cooking and his new way of doing the laundry. But his carefree style doesn’t impress everyone, including Tia (Jean Kelly), his rebellious teenage niece, and Chanice (Amy Madigan), his impatient girlfriend. Uncle Buck is the last person you’d think of to watch the kids. But with a little luck and a lot of love, he manages to surprise everyone in this heartwarming family comedy.

RELIGIOUS TATTOOS BY ROBERT PHO.

BEST BABY PORTRAIT TATTOO.

Baby portrait tattoo.

 After seeing the latest work from black and grey tattoo artist Andy Pho, it’s safe to say that excellence runs in the family. This latest baby portrait tattoo was done on a client (@barberdeef) just yesterday, and he flew in all the way from Ireland.

Take a close look at the details and the shading and it becomes pretty evident that Andy’s finesse and attention to detail is outrageously accurate. To tattoo a portrait of a loved one is a very sentimental experience and we’re glad to have been a part of this occasion. This also marks the second tattoo from two clients who flew in from Ireland to watch the UFC fight go down. 

If you’re looking for the best portrait tattoos in color or black and grey then be sure to stop on by Skin Design. We’re located a few miles from the Las Vegas strip and we’re open 7 days a week. 

MEMORIAL TATTOO OF KAHLUA

Golden-retriever-tattoo-color

Dog portrait tattoo by Andy Pho

When Erica’s dog, a 7 year old Golden Retriever named Kahlua, passed away in her sleep, the owner decided she was going to get a memorial tattoo done in memory of her beloved friend. That’s when she decided to catch a flight from Washington to Las Vegas, to get a black and grey portrait tattoo done by Andy Pho.

You see, a dog’s love is uncontested and unconditional, which is why they’ve earned the term, “Man’s best friend”. They see no wrong, they pass no judgement and in the end they will become  a part of our lives, but to them, we are their whole lives. So when Erica flew in from Washington, DC flew to get a tattoo we weren’t surprised by her devotion and dedication. In fact, resident Vegas tattooist Andy Pho was more than happy and honored to take on the job and the end result was stellar. That said, we’re sure that Kahlua is looking down proud and wagging her tail knowing that her owner’s love and memory of her hasn’t faded one bit. A special thanks to Erica for trusting us with such a precious and powerful piece.
