It has been such a great couple of weeks working with Valerie Vargas. What an absolute pleasure it was to have her with us at Kings Avenue Tattoo. She and Stewart are such talented and friendly people. The tattoo community is lucky to have them and we are fortunate to have worked with both. We are going to be so sorry to see her leave. It was an honor to watch her kill it day after day, she is a true talent, with the body of work to prove it.
This Madussa tattoo was the first piece Valerie did on her guest spot with us at Kings Avenue Tattooing N.Y.C. That is what you call hitting the ground running. It just set a tone for the great days to follow.
This belly dancer has such an attention to detail that Valerie Vargas is known for.
A punk rock Virgin Mary, was another piece of beautiful and strong female imagery, that seemed to be the prevailing subject of Valerie's trip. And with a piece like this, no one is complaining.
West Coast meets West End, well really Big Ben isn't really West End but close enough.
Valerie would like to die in her sleep. Grez wants to be eaten by sharks and John would like to go in a plane crash. But all three agree that none of them would like to be burned at the stake like Joan of Arc.
Thank you so much Valerie for a great two weeks. Get home safe and give our best to Stewart. We look forward to your next visit to N.Y.C. and you guys always have a home with us at Kings Avenue Tattooing.
Next week Kings Avenue is happy to be welcoming a new set of guest artists to our clients.
