I read the final issues of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’ “Locke & Key” late last night. While I found it completely satisfying and fitting for the story and it’s characters, I’m not quite ready to let go. IDW Publishing put out a hell of a series from start to finish, and knowing that the […]
Remember Znag, of the impressive 3D tattoos fame we posted about early last month? Apparently, he was just the tip of the iceberg. As impressive as his works are, he’s not alone in pioneering crazy realistic 3D ink jobs. Via the tumblrs of writers Joshua Williamson and Joe Hill, CBR INK came across a Curious […]
They’re real and they’re spectacular. Hey, get your mind out of the gutter! Is This the Future recently tracked down the artist responsible for the image below — which, like many unbelievable images shared across the Internet, was deemed equal parts amazing and fraudulent. As it turns out, they’re 100% real and the work of […]
Tattoos based on the work of artist and “Last Man Standing” creator Dan LuVisi were previously featured on CBR INK, but this time around we’re flipping that around — LuVisi just got his first tattoo.

SPX is also home to the annual Ignatz Awards, which recognize outstanding achievements in comics and cartooning by small press creators and creator-owned projects. The winners of […]

Archie Comics and DC Comics put the final nail in the CCA’s coffin in early 2011, and Marvel paved the way for major publishers to […]
Two weeks back we posted a massive, Green Latnern-centric post (in which at least one of you agreed with me that Kyle Rayner is the best GL). While there were several emotional spectrum tattoos in the mix, we heard from the owners of them that he’s actually expanded the tattoo beyond what was originally pictured. […]
Our old pal Wayne Nichols, who previously showed up on CBR INK for designing a WWII tattoo sleeve, is at it again. He recently posted the following image sent to him by a fan, of a brand new sleeve tattoo based on one of his “Star Wars” pages.
Happy April, Ink fans! In honor of the arrival of Spring (it is Spring, right, weather?) I dug out an old tattoo that reminds me of warmer weather. I originally came across last July when this site was still just in the planning stages.
In August we brought you a post about a fan who got colorist and fine artist Rob Schwager’s “Mister Nasty” tattooed on his back. More than six months later another fan has turned to Schwager for inspiration, this time getting his “Sinner” as a tattoo on her back (in roughly the same spot as the […]
