Sunday Spotlight - Tattooist: Amanda Wachob

If you use Tumblr or are just a fan of the web, chances are highly likely that you've seen some tattoo work by Amanda Wachob, a brilliant tattooist currently working from Dare Devil Tattoo in New York City. Amanda has such a way with her tattoos! She has such a painterly hand for using a tattoo machine. Many of her abstract tattoos have been reblogged on Tumblr with thousands and thousands of notes. Of course good tattoos don't come cheap (as they shouldn't!) and Amanda's hourly rate is $300 and she's currently booked 5 months out! 5 months is nothing compared to how booked she has been though! You'll definitely have to throw down some dough to get one of her pieces but I can't imagine a proper art collection being complete without one! Just peep some of her work below and you'll see exactly what I mean!
















Are you blown away yet?! Geeze! You can find Amanda online at these lovely places: Website, Portfolio, & DareDevil Tattoo!

  9. I really love Amanda's tattoos, I came across her last year. I really want a bird tattoo, and hers are so beautiful, I don't think I could trust anyone else to draw one on me! I just need to raise the funds to get the tattoo AND to get to New York!!

  11. Very impressive portfolio she has. Not the style of art I'd want on my body (I'm a bit more old school when it comes to tattoos). THat said, I think it's totally beautiful!

  12. She has some serious talent! I've seen the paint splatters in a few tattoo magazines. It's really cool, just not my personal aesthetic for tattoos. Thanks for sharing!

  19. I LOVE her work. Thanks so much for posting this. I was trying to describe her style to a friend of mine, but I couldn't remember her name and was unable to show her....until now! I've been getting the itch for another tattoo.

  21. Holy freaking crap. She is has been my favorite tattoo artist for some time now and I dream of having her do the quarter sleeve I have planned for one day. But jeez, I never realized a tattoo from her could be that insanely costly. I will have to save up forever at $300 an hour. lol.

  26. OMG! Those are incredible. Not just any tattoo artist can pull off work like that. They look like they were done with paint or pastels, not ink.

  27. Wow, those are amazing. I've never seen them before and at first I wasn't reading the post, just scrolling through the photos and I thought people had just painted their arms and legs. Crazy.
