weegie wednesday, and my last day at work – I’m going on holiday  😀

Paul got the last of his wee portraits done, he now has his mother, his sister and both sets of grand parents on his back. next step will be to tie it all together with scroll work and shading.
I’ll also be darkening some of the shading on the portraits, as some of it has gone during the healing. This part of the body really isn’t ideal for portraits, the skin is thick and gets lots of movement during the healing, so it can settle down less well than elsewhere on the body. Not to worry, we can always add more.


then I started a wee cover up on hazel, she had had a dagger design done on her back years ago (in a caravan in a cemetery in Gurock,  😆  them were the days!)

Roz had zapped it with the laser a couple of times and the black lines had faded really well, so it’s going to be easy to cover, we can even use light colours like orange to hide what’s left of the old piece.

My last customer’s tattoo needed a facelift, he’d had some roses tattooed, but they were a bit lackluster and basic, and the design didn’t hang together.
I’ve added some more roses, and some background shading, next time we’ll tackle the original roses and make them a little bit more defined

well, that’s me off til the 5th May! Proper holiday abroad, no tattoo machines in sight  😆

see youse all when I get back…
