Art that adorns the flesh…

The Bride

April 23rd, 2010 by

New Haven Connecticut’s Joe Capobianco is well known to the tattoo world for his spacey/scary/creepy portraits of crazy space girls.  I think that’s the best way that I can describe it.  No offense intended, Joe.  Joe has been tattooing for longer than you, and he does really, really, really cool work.

In fact, Joe Capobianco’s tattoo art reminds me of these little figurine sort of dolls of various manga comic book characters that you can buy all over the place in Japan.  I’m not kidding, they’re crazy popular over there.  But hey!  What a coincidence that I would think of those little figurines that you see all over the place in Japan when I see Joe Capobianco’s tattoos!  Why?  Well, because Joe Capobianco has recently designed one of those little figurines that you see all over the place in Japan!

That’s right, if you’re a fan of Capobianco’s work and you can’t one way or another get to Joe, or you don’t have the money to get a tattoo or whatever the case may be that prohibits you from getting Joe’s art on your body, then you can order one of the limited edition toy figurines, named The Bride.  It’s pretty cool looking actually, and if I had an inch of space in my tiny-ass apartment, I’d probably even buy one.  At any rate, if you’re interested in buying one of these beauties, they’ll run you a cool $75 USD.  You can find them here, at  You can’t however, buy one until May 20th.

If you do happen to live in Columbus Ohio, you can pick one up at the Hell City Tattoo Festival on May 21st, where Capobianco and crew will be on hand for what I’m sure will be a decent release party.
