The Art of Frank, Inc. designs a Tattoo

After a successful exhibition at the New York Comic Con 2011, The Art of Frank, Inc. was hired to design a tattoo design for an old client… Mike Dolan, lead singer and bassist of “GimmieHead: The Greatest Living Motörhead Tribute Band in the World™” and the FTW’s. Pictured below:

To refresh your memory, below you’ll find the mascot design we did for “Gimmiehead” a few years ago:

Frank Espinoza and Mike Dolan reconnected at the recent New York Comic Con 2011, where Mike approached Frank with a tattoo design proposal, which Frank gladly accepted! The tattoo design idea was of a hand bearing a pentagram symbol. Frank’s first conceptual interpretation can be seen below:

Frank took the hand bearing the Pentagram symbol as if it were literally “bearing” it, like a gift. He was corrected and he revised the design, see below:

Now he was much closer and with the next drawing he was “warmer” by “Branding” the pentagram like a hot, searing cattle brand onto the hand:

We’re almost there, Mike directed Frank to have the next design expose the inside of the palm to reveal a clearly visible branded pentagram.

Mike is happy with the revision! Frank, on third base, slides on down to home plate by tightening up the lines as vectors for the tattoo artist to easily trace and work from…

Without further a due, we present the finished tattooed piece:

The tattoo artist added their finishing touches of some blood, scales, highlights and a very nicely scripted message. All in all, a very fun assignment that permanently  bonds this collaboration of Art and Music, Darkness and Metal and in the end, for lack of a better word: a BAD-ASS Piece!

To check out Mike Dolan’s bands check out the following links and it is highly recommended to go to their live shows in the NYC area! Visit their websites for more show date information:
