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…

Minimalist…

Every Saturday at Spike at the Art we keep time free to fit in ‘walk in’ tattoos. This was one of the little pieces I did last Saturday. I believe that every tattoo is equally as important regardless of size. I really like the position of this piece. I think it looks really cute, what do you guys think?

Lions and Angels…

Yesterday I did this tattoo for a lovely chap. He is actually married to an old school friend of mine, and despite living in Norwich they both travelled down to Plymouth to get tattooed by me. It is always a huge compliment when people want to travel for my work. This was his first tattoo and we managed to complete it in one sitting (thanks to him sitting like an absolute star)

Yes Chef…

A little while ago I had the pleasure of tattooing my cousin. He is an awesome chef and he wanted his knives tattooed on him. I always find tattooing realistic objects enjoyable… they are a good challenge! These are on his lower leg, incase you are wondering!!

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…
