PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Sixers may be rebuilding, but Eric Negron’s Sixers tattoo is a finished product.
Started in February by local tattoo artist Tim Pangburn of Art Machine Productions, the tattoo, which features Allen Iverson, Wilt Chamberlain, and Julius Erving, as well as retired Sixers numbers, is now finished and healed.
The tattoo, which is on Negron’s leg, was finished in five sessions, each taking between two and four hours.
Pangburn’s Art Machine Productions is located in Fishtown, and Pangburn’s work is featured on the TLC show “America’s Worst Tattoos.” To be clear, that isn’t because Pangburn’s tattoos aren’t America’s worst. One of his specialties is “cover-ups,” so he covers the worst tattoos the United States with good ones.
