Website Updates

Hey everyone!  Wanted to give you a little update on the website and what you can expect in the near future.  First off we are working on adding digital downloads, it has taken a little longer than we expected but bare with us and we will let you guys know as soon as they are up in the AE store. We are also working on adding more items as well.  Roman's new signature Sullen shirts will be out in the next few months so keep your eye's open for when they drop.  We are also working on adding some variety and different priced items for purchase, if you have any ideas on what you would like to see in the store drop us a line on the contact page.

Now that that's out of the way you probably are wondering why the Artists' galleries are not all up, well we are working on getting art from all of our artists and letting them pick what tattoos they would like featured to show their full line of work.  It's not easy getting these guy's away from tattooing but surely we will get it done.  At any time if you see work you  like and would like to get done by a particular artist fill out the contact form on their respective profile and it will go directly to them.  

If you have been here from the start we hope you have noticed the small changes made along the way to improve everyone's experience on  One of the coolest features we have is the ability to Sign up and become a part of the Artistic Element community.  By singing up you will join the Artistic Element community and will receive our email newsletter to keep you up on all things Artistic Element.  

Another cool feature when becoming a member is the ability to join the AE Forum.  The forum is a little slow for now like nothing at all but as members sign up it should be a place to talk about everything tattoos and the tattoo world.  If you have something to say or share the forum is a perfect place to get the word out.  If you have questions about tattoo aftercare or what to expect when getting a tattoo (if it happens to be your first) the forum is a great place to get ideas from people in the know.

We are also working on doing a tattoo of the month feature that will feature a tattoo done by one of our amazing artist and explain the idea behind the tattoo, how long it took to complete, and the process in which it was done, from lining to shading and everything in between.  

We hope you guys are having a positive experience, so keep coming back to see where the site is headed.  If you guys have any thoughts or ideas on what you would like to see from us, i.e. more photos, features or what not let us know and we will take it into consideration, in the mean time have fun and keep getting tattooed.

Artistic Element.

Prescott Arizona

First and foremost, Artistic Element would like to take a moment and say that the fires that occurred on 06/30/13 in Northern Arizona that killed 19 firefighters "hotshots" is an absolute tragedy. Roman Abrego and Rich Pineda, another realism artist, are here tattooing at the Northern Arizona Tattoo Fest In Prescott Arizona and it's a sad occasion. The convention is at a great location and in such a picturesque community but the locals are still dealing with the loss of their own. This wonderful town in Northern Arizona is rallying together to remember the lives lost and donate as much as they can to the families that lost their loved ones last Sunday. While these firefighters and their families should have been planning and celebrating the Fourth of July, they are all instead dealing with the impact of the Prescott wildfires. Hopefully the fact that the 1st annual Northern Tattoo Convention has kick started and the Oldest Rodeo is upon Prescott it can bring some smiles back to the locals.
