Here’s a progress shot of a clown themed tattoo being done on Monte by Robert Pho.
Ever want a clown tattoo? I know I do. As little children, clowns brought us joy and memories of the circus and cotton candy, but those sweet memories slowly transcended into ones more associated with hamburgers and Happy Meals – thanks to Ronald McDonald. Then as we enter adulthood, something strange happens, and clowns become an entity that strikes fear in our minds and terrifies us beyond belief.
Who knows? Maybe it has something to do with being old enough to watch horror movies that triggers and introduces this fear. I remember growing up watching Magic with Anthony Hopkins, and there was something frightening and eerie about that mannequin…..but it was nothing, compared to that f*ckin clown in IT from Stephen King.
Again, I can’t pinpoint the actual cause, but maybe it has to do with the fact that behind the mask and suit is a person with evil intentions. Regardless, my fear of them has slowly evolved into an obsession with them. They’re powerful, mysterious, incredibly freakish and you yet there’s something intriguing and ironic about something so evil always smiling and never breaking character.
Right? When have you ever seen a clown not happy?
That said, this clown themed tattoo done by Robert Pho is an incredible piece that’ll have you mesmerized and we’ll have more pictures of this clown sleeve shortly. It’s still a work in progress and we’ll have the final pictures, as well as the full story behind this theme shortly. On another note, if you’ve ever seen the gangster themed leg sleeve that we previously featured, well he’s the same owner of this sleeve so you already know that this is going to be one hell of a body suit once it’s all buttoned up.
