Tinsley Takes Brolin Back in Time

Hitting theaters this Friday is Barry Sonnenfeld‘s Men in Black 3: Back in Time. Starring Will SmithTommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin this film follows Agent J back in time to the 1960s where he must defend his friend Agent K against a homicidal alien. Our own Christien Tinsley designed the makeup for Josh Brolin and applied the makeup giving Brolin the look of a young Tommy Lee Jones. In addition to the daily application of the makeup, Tinsley also lent a hand in the aliens’ appearance. We can’t wait for you to see what Tinsley had up his sleeve for Brolin in MIB3.

 

Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance

“Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance” opened in theaters on Feb. 17th and proved that sometimes sequels are better than the original. It doesn’t hurt that this film features makeup created by Tinsley Studio. Directed by Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine, this film is a fun, action packed ride. Since the Studio failed to give any of us credit (proving you shouldn’t piss off production while filming) we now acknowledge ourselves… Congratulations to Makeup Department Head Jason Hamer and Key Makeup Artist Kerrin Jackson (they were not credited accurately despite their hard work and sacrifice) for their makeup and prosthetic application. Check out the work in theaters now and look for Tinsley’s new design of Ghost Rider, Blackout design and prosthetics (Johnny Whitworth), 4 stages of aging on Roarke (Ciaran Hinds) and of course… our Tattoos!

X Tattoo

In what is shaping up to be another summer blockbuster, X-Men First Class looks to deliver great makeup effects and tattoos for this mutant cast of characters. Last year (2010) when Makeup Department Head Frances Hannon contacted us to provide tattoos for the film we were very exited to jump on board! The Tinsley team had the pleasure of meeting up-and-coming starlet Zoe Kravitz and set out to create Wing tattoos for her character Angel. Tinsley designer Mike Mekash helped facilitate the design and production while Frances took the lead on application. Prosthetics were provided by Spectral Motion, Inc.

The highly anticipated X-Men First Class opens in theaters today. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed participating in its creation.

The Hangover Part 2 Tattoos!

Last year Tinsley Studio was hired to supply tattoos for “The Hangover Part 2″. Being fans of the first film our thought was simply “awesome!” We set to work to recreate Mike Tyson’s tattoo for “Stu” which has been the subject of some controversy in the past weeks. In addition, we were asked to cover a “tattoo artist” originally to be played by Mel Gibson, then Liam Neeson and eventually by someone else entirely. Funny how things work sometimes. Nonetheless, our congratulations go out to the cast and crew for the huge box office opening and our thanks for being just a small part of this film. We encourage you all to check out the latest installment in the adventures of the “wolf pack” and don’t forget to keep an eye out for upcoming Tinsley Studio Projects.
