For Jo…

I tattooed a lovely lady named Jo on Wednesday, this is what I came up with for her. She brought in a reference picture but was happy for me to ‘do my thing’ with it. The idea of the skull with the flower was influenced by the reference picture, but I decided to go with a Victorian rose rather than a traditional one. She was also really keen on my mendhi work so I incorporated a bit of that into the piece. I’m really pleased with how the piece turned out, I particular like how the pinks really stand out against the black and grey shading. I’m looking forward to seeing this piece helped and working on Jo again in the near future (she sat like a rock!) 🙂

Healed…

I love seeing my tattoos healed. I did this tattoo a good few months ago and got to see it all healed after. I really love this owl. It’s on the back of her calf

Roses…

I did this piece on a lovely customer a couple of months ago. We completed it in two separate sittings. So in this photo only the large rose is fresh and the rest is completely healed. She sat really well for this piece. The blue roses were her idea and I’m so glad she suggested it as I think they really make this tattoo. I would like to do more like this…

Into the sea…

I really love this piece I did a few weeks back. It’s a mendhi style piece but with sea influenced elements. And we used the vibrant turquoise to add to the sea theme. I think it works really well, but if love to know what you think…

Hamsa…

I tattooed this piece last week. It was one of my first pieces I did since my little adventure to Oklahoma. I really enjoy doing anything with a mendhi influence. It was done on her ribs, which is a painful area, and she say really well for it. I really love the bright coloured highlights in this piece. What do you guys think?

Flutterby…

I did this rib piece for customer, that I have tattooed before, a couple of days ago. I really enjoy doing this mendhi/lace combination style. I think the butterfly adds a nice touch of colour to the piece. I have done a lot of these 3d butterflies in the last year so I guess people like them. We designed it so that it can easily be extended. I would love to hear people’s opinions of the work I do so feel free to comment 🙂 …

Budgie…

I tattooed this a little while ago. It is going to be the start of a full sleeve, so there is background to be added later. I really enjoyed the colour combinations on this tattoo, the client gave me a rough idea of what she wanted and then left me to it. I’m really happy with how it turned out :)…
