This is the result of the first session on a Venom/Joker half sleeve started by Will at Cardinal Tattoo. We will take a better photo when it is healed, our camera took a small hiatus to Europe with our artist Tasha Grey while she attended the Evian Tattoo Convention in France! Still, the slimey toothiness of this depiction of the Marvel comics anti-hero and Spider-man arch-nemesis is appropriate. Ever the polarizing character, it seems even the movie and Tom Hardy can’t escape the strong feelings from both sides, positive and negative alike, regarding the style and tone set for the symbiote. We would be remiss not to mention the recent passing of Mr. Stan Lee and his contribution to the comics community, to popular culture, and to the lives of young and not-so-young alike. In a world where hope seems like such a difficult thing to find, Stan Lee created a world where hope springs eternal. Excelsior!
