Ahhhh. Some straight-up contemporary tribal. #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #leozstyle #sandiego @gurutattoo
Go big. It's a good answer to almost all tattoo questions. This Celtic backpiece is based on an original print by @jendelyth. I completely re-drew it, because what works nicely on a rectangular painting does not necessarily work as a design for the human body. #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #celtictattoo #backpiece #sandiego @gurutattoo
Myself, Cash from @chapteronetattoo , and @yallzee , checking out an amazing Japanese leg sleeve by @jcaramtattoo , for the contests at the San Diego Tattoo Invitational convention. The convention is open Sunday until 7:00. #sandiegotattooinvitational #rorykeating #tattoocontest #sandiego #tattoo
I finally met @hanumantra here at the San Diego Tattoo Invitational convention. I’ve been following him here on Instagram for quite awhile. Awesome dude. @sandiegotattooinvitational #sandiegotattooinvitational #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #tattooartist #sandiego #rorykeating #hanumantra @gurutattoo
It started with a spiral design from #newgrange , in Ireland. And now it’s growing... #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #dotwork #neolithicart #sandiego @gurutattoo
While out doing fieldwork (which is to say, at the mall) I ran into a client with this little Northwest Coast style dragonfly from a few years back. That was a fun one. #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #haidatattoo #nativeamericantattoo #formline #sandiego @gurutattoo
LAST WEEKEND. Los Angeles Natural History Museum. #tattoo #tattoohistory #nhmla #leozulueta
Dotted in the some Celtic spirals as the finishing touch to this sleeve. I think the dot technique is very suited to this kind of spiral design. #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #celtictattoo #celticdesign #dotworktattoo #sandiego @gurutattoo
Filipino. Some traditional patterns, contemporary fit and placement. #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #filipinotattoo #sandiego @gurutattoo
This great exhibition is CLOSING SOON. It’s well worth seeing. The show may well travel to another city sometime after this, but I don’t know where. #tattoo #tattoohistory #leozulueta #nhmla #nhmlatattoo

A blast from the past. 2006, I believe. That’s myself on the left, with tattoos by @leo.zulueta , and my tattooing being modeled by @ladymissnataka and Lightning. Hairstyles may change, but big bold black tattoos are forever. #tattoo #blacktattoo #blackwork #tribal #tribaltattoo #backpiece #sandiego #rorykeating @gurutattoo
