Cupcake tattoo alight

By on Saturday, January 15th, 2011

This cupcake tattoo is from Revolution Ink.  You may remember that we featured them last week with the story of Angie, and the remembrance of her through the ongoing design of bright, colorful and unique cupcakes.

I had so many amazing photos and gorgeous ideas I just couldn’t fit them all into the one post, so today I thought I would show you another one of those cupcake tattoos.

I love the big lick of flame on top of this cupcake, but more than the tattoo itself, I love this really edgy and beautiful photograph below.  It really shows the fantastic colors of the cupcake tattoo on this man’s arm.

Cupcake Tattoos for Angie

By on Friday, January 7th, 2011

You know that we love to feature cupcake tattoos, and why not, there are so many amazing designs around, and behind each is a skilled and talented artist who create, design and ink those images, a piece of artwork which will last for a lifetime.  So today I thought I would explore where one particular tattoo parlor got its cupcake inspiration from.

Angelia was a baker, she loved to make cupcakes and Angie dreamt of owning her own cupcake bakery one day.  She had a few cupcake tattoos on her done by the guys at Revolution Ink.  Angie specifically requested bright and beautiful tattoos and they were admired by many, even people not interested in tattoos.

Unfortunately when Angie passed away, it left a hole  in the hearts of those who knew her and posed an issue as to how a funeral could be funded.  The guys at Revolution Ink decided to offer cupcake tattoos to raise the funds, and so many people took them up, that they raised over $3,000.  Even now they still get so many requests for these bright and beautiful cupcake tattoos which first started with Angie’s originals.

These photos above are some of the tattoos created in remembrance of Angie, and below is the large colorful tattoo that Angie had done on her back.

Pink and Blues – New Cupcake Tattoos!

By on Friday, November 26th, 2010

Today I have two new cupcake tattoos to share with you and these are both fantastic!

The first one here is from Kiana.  She had her cupcake tattoo with stars done by Rob at Electric Body Art in Marietta, GA.

It is a large tattoo on the right hand side of her tummy.

The next one is from Ida in Austria and it is also just above her hip.

The colors of this are fantastic, a thick swirl of strawberry frosting on a vanilla cupcake in a bright blue wrapper.

Thanks to both Kiana and Ida for sending in their cupcake tattoos.

Dagger Cupcake and Candy Tattoo

By on Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

Today we are featuring a stunning cupcake tattoo sent in to us from Sherri.

This cupcake tattoo is super bright and colorful.  It features a vanilla cupcake in a pink wrapper and blue frosting.  The dagger through the centre is candy cane with a green ring pop hilt.  Laced with flowers, cherries, a lollypop and shoelace licorice ribbons this cupcake tattoo is exceptionally designed and takes up most of the inside of Sherri’s forearm.

Sherri’s tattoo was drawn and inked by Teresa Sharpe at Studio 13 in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Cupcake tattoos for angels

By on Monday, November 8th, 2010

Today I am privileged to be able to share with you two awesome cupcake tattoos from our readers!  The first is not so much an angel looking tattoo but one that symbolizes a wonderful girlfriend who passed away.  Amanda was devestated by the loss of her best friend, but wanted to find someway to remember the fun and special connection they had shared.  So she chose something girly and delicate in the form of a cupcake, sprinkled with color.

Amanda’s cupcake tattoo is located on her arm and is something she gets much joy out of.

The second tattoo is more angelic in its design, given it has angel’s wings!  This tattoo on Jana was done about five years ago by Jennifer Knox from Hold Fast Tattoo, in Seaside, OR.  Jana wanted a tattoo to celebrate self acceptance of who she is and selected on the angel cupcake given it was fun and daring.  Jana describes herself as “a big curvy girl with an appetite for life” and wanted to show that in her tattoo choice!

Thank you to both Amanda and Jana for sharing their cupcake tattoos with us!  Remember if you are planning on getting a cupcake tattoo All Things Cupcake has a huge gallery of cupcake tattoos!

Day of the Cupcake at Sugar Dolls

By on Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Sugar Dolls bakery recently celebrated a Day of the Cupcake at Sacred Heart Tattoo of Atlanta, Georgia.  Visitors ate cupcakes, played cupcake games, competed in a cupcake eating contest, and got cupcake tattoos.  I believe the old adage is true, that pictures tell a thousand words, so I will leave them to it …

Two sides to every cupcake tattoo

By on Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

Tammie from Texas has just recently sent us these new tattoos that she has just had done.  Instead of just creating a single design on one arm, she has decided to create two identically sized cupcake tattoos, one on each arm.

From the image above you can see that the cupcakes are very similar however are subtly different too, but it is not until the color is added in the image below that you fully can appreciate this design.  The cupcake on her right arm (left side of the above and below pictures), is the cupcake of good, with angel wings and a floating frosting halo, her eyes sweetly shut, where as the other cupcake, is the evil devil cake, with a red paper, red wings and horns, his eyes sinister and a little devil tail below.

Fantastic concept and brilliantly executed.  The tattoos were done by Shelbi at Renegades Tattoo in El Paso Tx.
