I’ve always prided myself on having created a tattoo studio that offers fantastic work of every style for reasonable pricing. Since 2011, our friends and clients have shown their appreciation by voting for us in the annual best of Philly contest, garnering us first place every year since 2011.
Well, it’s that time of year again, and I’m going to return some of that appreciation, but my love is conditional, so you have to vote first. Vote for Art Machine and you’ll unlock a deal to save $25 off your next tattoo! We’ll dance in the moonlight, and laugh and laugh. We’ll do snacks and my apprentice Justin will rub your feet.

We’re up once again for best of Philly! We’ve won first place in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 (there was no 2015 voting) and hope to go for a repeat!
As a huge thank you to all of our loyal clients over the years, Art Machine would like to extend our gratitude by offering $25 off your next $100 spent at Art Machine Productions. All you have to do is vote for us, and then purchase the voucher. (You can also purchase one for a friend!) Bring it in for your next tattoo session, and we’ll take care of the rest. I appreciate the support we’ve received over the years, and look forward to serving you for many more to come.

We all suffer from artist block from time to time. It can be a real pain in the ass to break through it. Creativity come with many stumbling blocks, and nothing is more frustrating than having the well go dry on new ideas.
I’ve done a lot of different things to stoke the coals. I keep a list of items that should be drawn from day to day. I do a random pick three, where I randomly select three subjects form my list and combine them in one drawing. I try to draw subjects I am interested in that are related to pop culture and current events. Even with all of that, I still get stuck.
Well, in searching for random object generators, I stumbled on a website that is an amazing resource for artists, writers, and fans of RPG’s. The entire site is dedicated to random generators for characters, creatures, locations, scenarios, magic, sci-fi, horror, and any other numerous fantasy settings and inhabitants. This is like the jackpot for undoing creative blockage.
Go wander around that site for a bit. You’ll thank me, and the weird and amazing art you create afterward will be so rewarding.

I know a lot of people have been asking for shirts for some time now, and I’ve really wanted to. But between my own laziness, lack of funds, and lack of space for stock, I haven’t done it yet.
Have no fear! I’ve found the loophole to all of those problems, and that’s Threadless. I’ve started an artist account, and they print and ship to order. SO I’ve been busy uploading designs to bring you guys shirts, and they’re available in men’s, women’s, and children’s sizes in a variety of colors for each design. I’ll be uploading new designs on the regular, so I do encourage you to check in occasionally, and tell your friends about how awesome and rad and life changing they are.
