Next month is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Love N Hate would love to give back! Gabe lost his mother 15 years ago to this terrible disease so this cause means a lot to him. We are looking for ladies and gentlemen that have gone through a mastectomy and reconstruction and are looking to close that chapter in their lives. Whether you are looking to cover up the scars or have realistic nipples done, we would like to offer that service to you free of charge.
We will be having a full day of the artist giving back on Sunday October 7, 2018 at 10am, spots are limited. If you or anyone you know are looking to get in please contact us at 303-936-3353 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the appointment request form red tab located at the top right corner of the page. Destiny will be going through everyone’s submissions to schedule you in with the artist that best fits your ideas. Please help us spread the word and contact us immediately as spots are limited.
For the families and friends that would like to get something to support the cause, we haven’t forgotten about you. We will have a couple of artist that will be offering small flash tattoos that day as well. These tattoos will be first come first serve for $30 each and all proceeds will go to a local charity. Thank you all and we look forward to helping out and hearing your story.
As many of us have waited patiently, football season is finally here! We begin a new year with new fantasy football leagues, hoping that our home team wins the super bowl or simply crossing our fingers that our team does better this year. We start having those erratic bets with our friend and family over the games, like the “Tebow Time Tattoo” bet that was done by our very own Josh Lucero. Little did Josh and Juan Contreras the now owner of this lovely tattoo, would ever imagine how this silly tattoo would become the talk all over the internet that year.
We will be interviewing Josh and Juan on their story. We will get the full scoop on how this all started, what the bet was about, how did Josh come up with this design and what happened after it all blew up on the internet. Keep your eye out for this interview, with these two together we could expect a hilarious and fun time.
The artist at Love N Hate had a busy weekend at their first tattoo convention. Working along worldwide artists was not only an honor, but, a fun and entertaining experience.
Vendors showcased their best products – tattoo inks in an array of colors, newest machines, unique clothing and jewelry. Creative, artistic products and performances beyond imagination! Always a site to see is human suspension, with their ability to push their mind and bodies against unbearable pain. Not knowing what to expect at the convention, the artist from Love N Hate arrived open minded, taking it all in with amazement.
Tattoo contests were thrilling to enter! Competing against talent from all over the world was the ultimate test. Josh Lucero entered a black and grey photo realism Spiderman he created Friday, June 22nd. Forrest Henderson entered a traditional style of a bear skull, peonies with a stone tip wood arrow through the skull.
Josh was awarded 2nd place in black and grey tattoo of the day. Forrest won 3rd place for best traditional tattoo. We cannot express how proud Love N Hate is of their artists! Their backbreaking work and tedious attention to detail was rightfully rewarded and received with great excitement.
Love N Hate is especially appreciative of all the clients that came to the convention to be our artists’ canvas! We understand that at times it may have felt uncomfortable with the vast amount of people observing art at work.
We are also grateful for our existing clients that attended the tattoo convention! Thank you for showing support and getting the opportunity to demonstrate your own pieces with others.
It was great to see potential new clients who loved that Love N Hate was a local tattoo shop. We hope to see many of those faces at the shop, and soon!
The entire team at Love N Hate worked hard to be part of this convention and as a result, it was completely worth it. Even when at times situations were overwhelming, the team remained committed and the outcome was superb.
This was the shop’s first of many more conventions to come. We look forward to traveling for our next convention, so please, keep an eye out for a Love N Hate appearance at a tattoo convention nearest to your city!
The artist at Love N Hate will be at the Villain Arts Convention this weekend June 22nd-24th. This will be the first convention the shop will be attending. Come support our artist, stop by and say hello and check out the pieces they will be working on. If you have work done from us come and show off your art pieces with others at the convention. We will be sharing space with artist that are from all over the world and you may even see artist that have been on your favorite reality tattoo shows. There will be tattoo contest everyday we hope to be able to enter some of those if time permits. This should be a fun and exciting event full of entertainment, don’t miss out. We hope to see you all there!
