New cupcake tattoos

By on Saturday, July 17th, 2010

We are amassing a great collection of spectacular tattoos in the tattoo gallery, and today we have two new ones to share with you.  The first here on the right is from Dana in New Jersey.  She has just got this tattoo on the inside of her forearm.

Dana is a lover of cupcakes and the word cupcake, indeed it is the nickname she gives to her family, friends and dog.  Dana didn’t state the flavor of her cupcake, but I am sure that is a mountain of blueberry frosting on top.

Dana got her tattoo done by artist Lou Morgue from Artisanal Tattoo in Somerville.

The second tattoo is from Andrea who go her cupcake done a while ago on her shoulder.  It is a pretty impressive tattoo complete with banner and stars.

How does your cupcake tattoo go?

By on Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

Is it pink and pretty or evil and foreboding?  It surprises me how much variation we see in the different styles and takes we receive on the cupcake when it becomes art.  This collection is no different.

Melissa (right) had her Tattoo sleeve designed by Dana Tyrell in Santa Rosa at Inky Cells Tattoo Co. and says that her inspiration was her sweet and loving daughter Denae.

Whisking Cupcakes

By on Thursday, July 1st, 2010

Here at All Things Cupcake we receive quite a few cupcake tattoos, then all of a sudden we receive something slightly different, like this one from Becky in Ohio, who instead of going with the finished product, went instead for a whisk.  This piece was done by Iggy Sweeney at Bodystain Tattoo in Columbus, Ohio and looks fantastic.

But when you whisk… Read the rest of this entry »

Tattoos for Cupcakes from the Mind Behind Ace of Cakes

Cupcakes by Cupcake Queen with Duff Goldman Animal Skin Cupcake Tattoos (photo courtesy of Cupcake Queen)

I heard about this nifty new product from one of the cupcake blogs I regularly read, Way More than 52 Cupcakes by Cupcake Queen out of DC.  As it turns out, Duff Goldman of Ace of Cakes is rolling out his own line of cake accessories at Michael’s which includes edible cupcake tattoos.

According to the Michael’s website, you just lay down a nice even layer of frosting and then lay down the tattoo(s).  Cupcake Queen tried them out herself on several batches and says that they’re very easy to use.  The Michael’s website only shows striped and floral tattoos, but Cupcake Queen was showing off batches with skulls & crossbones and animal print, so my guess is that you’ll have a better selection in store than online.

Thanks for the heads up, Cupcake Queen!

Cupcake Tattoos in “Interesting” Places

By on Thursday, June 24th, 2010

 This post might be a little PG-13.  Recently, two of our faithful ATC readers sent in pictures of their tattoos, each of which were, ahem, in, ahem, some interesting places.

About this one, Michael wrote:  A bunch of my friends and I were sitting around talking about silly tattoos. I offered the idea of getting a cupcake scuba diving right in my groin area. I went home later that night and drew the concept on the back of my Macy’s bill … It’s a great conversation starter!




And Jamie writes that these tattoos serve as her conscience!

Cupcake tattoos

By on Thursday, June 17th, 2010

I find it hard to not think about yummy cupcakes at the best of times!  But how would you go with a cupcake tattooed on your wrist?

Earl Nixon is a tattoo artist in California and he has done many a cupcake tattoo, and sent us these fantastic designs from his collection.  These two were my favorite and capture Earl’s style which he describes as traditional, but a with a new school twist incorporating bright colors and crazy cartoon style.  But these are by no means the limit to Earl’s cupcake creativity!  His portfolio includes funky cupcakes with cherries and also a spooky cupcake with bat sprinkles and a little skull on top!

Where would you place your tattoo??

We have received some really cool images this week of cupcake tattoos.  It got me thinking where I would put my cupcake tattoo if I wasn’t such a wimp when it comes to burning needles!  Also I have a huge tendency to change my mind, so anything that cannot be altered or modified five minutes later, is just no good.  But if I was to have one, where would it go?  I do like the ankle area, or perhaps on my tummy just along my pant line. Hmm, today it would definitely be chocolate with triple choc chip.

So where would you place yours – hypothetically of course!  I haven’t seen any head cupcake tattoos yet, but Jessica wins the shoulder one (well it is in the vicinity of her shoulder) with this gorgeous cupcake nestled under her arm.  I love the little red bow.

And no one has a knee one yet – if you do send it in.  However one of our readers did send in this little cherry dotted one on her foot.  A big hello to the Skull & Rose Gallery in Clintonville, Ohio, where these were done!
