Smallest Tattoo of a painting-world record
set by Wingnut
PALM BEACH, FL, USA -- Wingnut, 24, (aka
Parker A. Beaudoin) is a tattoo artist specialized in reproducing
art work in tattoo form the size of a coin-setting the world
record for the Smallest
Tattoo of a painting (or any design in color or b/w).
"I have spent years fine tuning and
improving my style and techniques to produce the best and
most detailed itty bitty tattoos," he says.
While he's just as comfortable
doing large pieces-he logged about 40 hours into a Stars Wars-themed
sidepiece-he takes special pleasure in the super small work.
It's his capacity to push
the limits of tattooing and "never saying no, no matter
how small," that helped him develop this special skill,
and he wrote a book on the subject: "The everlasting
itty bitty" (on sale soon).
"I did an entire beach scene
inside of a girls ear!"
Wingnut was interviewed by the "Tattoos
for Women" magazine:
"I became interested in tattooing itty
bitties years ago", says Wingnut, of A New Dimension
in Lake Worth, FL. " I Have always been rebellious, so
when I hear 'You can't tattoo it that small', I want to prove
that you can."
Having started his own tattoo collection at the
tender age of 14, "I Had to bribe my father into letting
me get it. I told him I would pay for his if he let me get
mine."), Wingnut has been working his tattoo magic, small
and large, into skin for six years now.
positive, open atitude makes his customers feel welcome and
at ease, from the just-turned-18-year-olds to the octogenarian
great grandma who brought her entire family in for tattoos.
" She told me her whole life story-including her future
plans to sky dive-in just 30 minutes," he marvels.
Wingnut is grateful for the creativity
and professionalism of his fellow tattooists at A New Dimension
and the good working environement those skills provide.
" The shop is very upbeat and outgoing."
he says. "WR're all just one big family and would do
anything for each other."
In the end he strives to "make my father
proud of me and be someone that my daughter can look up to."
he wishes to thank his "two special girls who help me
