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!) 🙂

Daughter…

Yesterday I spent my morning tattooing this piece. It only took 4 hours, mostly due to my customer sitting like a rock. It’s really great when you get a customer that just lets you get on with the job. We designed this piece to match with his other arm that I did about eighteen months ago. They are for each of his daughters. Luckily they both have flowers for their middle names, which made design decisions a little easier :). We may have to tighten things up a little bit once it’s healed but I’m happy with it so far…

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…
