  • Sullen x Bishop Fantom

    Sullen Clothing got its start from being heavily influenced by Southern California beach culture and tattoo inspired art. With a strong focus on ideals and practices of modern tattooers, Sullen evolved from a small group of art driven tattooers and artists into a world renowned “Art Collective". As a whole, the “Collective” is drawn to the idea that art of all forms should be promoted, while related ideas should be shared for the world to learn from.

  • Deluxe Engraved Fantom with Louis Vuitton Case

    Franco Vescovi and Bishop Rotary set out to make the most exclusive tattoo machine in the world.

    We commissioned Louis Vuitton, a leader in luxury fashion, to create cases for these special tattoo machines. These 5 cases were hand crafted in France, and custom fitted for each of these extremely rare machines. The case has Louis Vuitton’s iconic calf leather on the exterior and the machine sits on a custom microfiber interior.

    Mark Dupp, one of the best engravers in the world, a multiple-time collaborator, amazing tattoo artist, and also dear friend, was then asked to hand engrave each one of these Fantom Rotary machines from top to bottom in exquisite detail.

    With only 5 tattoo machines available for sale, this is the most exclusive offering that Bishop Rotary has ever released.

  • OG Abel x Bishop Fantom

    Franco: “So let's talk a little bit about the OG Abel x Fantom. So many options — but we landed on silver. It's a sleek look. We felt it really pops the gold coin on the back. Tell us about the artwork behind the machine.”

    OG Abel: “The artwork is a piece that I call 'Time is Money'. It's sad, but time flies. It just points out how important it is for you to value every moment of your life. Not waste time and don't sweat the small stuff. Focus on things that you cherish. Give a middle finger to negativity, you know. And that's why I changed the Rolex. I dropped four of the points and let the middle one stick out because you need to be focused. And while you're tattooing, what else than to be focused?”

  • OG Abel x Bishop V6

    Franco: “Tell us about the artwork that belongs to the OG Abel x Bishop V6.”

    OG Abel: “The 'Freedom Lion'. The lion is the image that I chose to represent what I do. From a very young age, lion was just my spirit animal. And if I need to, I become fierce. I don't need to, I just have the ability. And life has certainly put me through tests that I took on with the heart of a lion.”

  • Tupac x Bishop Wand

    Bishop Rotary was proud to announce the collaboration of one of the most influential poets of our time. Tattooing helps tell the story of our own personal journeys. Tupac Shakur was more than a voice of a generation. He was a reflection of that rebel spirit that lives within each one of us as a tattoo artist.
