Face Tattoo Cholo Style – Judith Supine Inked by Jesse Hazelip in BK

Posted on October 23, 2012

Here are some hot new shots of stuff on the streets by Judith Supine that seem perfect for startling New Yorkers this week on their way to the haunted house.  Characterized by putrid hot color, recombined body parts of various proportions, a contorted focus on maquillage, it looks like Supine is in full effect for Halloween (or Day of the Dead) this year, and with help from a couple of collaborations.

The first “collabo” is really just about placement next to the colorful geometric colorplay patterning of Anthony Sneed– which on a normal day look bright but next to Judith can appear dimmed in comparison. The second collabo is more of the roughneck kind – bringing more of the west coast SoCal flavor of cholo tattoo – with patterns inked directly on the face by Street Artist/fine artist/illustrator Jesse Hazelip. Given their inherent visual punch, we never really thought of Supine works as a canvas and never really thought the portraits could evoke more evil pranksterism – but seeing these tattooed symbols on the fluorescent faces is going to scare some of the kids next week as they walk by with plastic pumpkin buckets of treats.
