happy belated Friday the 13th everyone! Nothing particularly bad or even extraordinary happened to me, it’s all hype, I tell ya…. 😀

Emma came to see me in Tribe 3 to get some more colour and flow added to her fairy piece, we did it a year or two ago, and she’d been thinking of extending it onto her shoulder a bit to finish it off, so that’s what we did.
The fairy artwork is by the amazing Brian Froud, he did the fairy books and the squashed fairy book, an amazing and entertaining, check it out if you don’t already know his stuff.
this link takes you to his home page, and Emma’s fairy is there peeking out at you at the top


Then Simon was in, we are working on a cover up, he’d had some lasering done and that has helped a lot. Still quite a bit to go on this one

the next day Roz and me drove through to Glasgow, where we had a very full house, Simon, Raffi and Bru were working in the basement studios, upstairs we had me, Tim and Roz, with mark doing the piercing. Phew! Glad wee Maggie was there to help out on reception. This has been a surprisingly busy January for us, not that anyone is complaining of course!! 😀
Tribe 2 is quite the beast when it’s firing on all cylinders.

I had Ryan in, we are still working away at his snow queen sleeve, there is a crazy amount of detail in this, the artwork we are working from is insanely dense in places, and we are having to simplify quite a bit, without losing the essence of the piece. It’s time consuming, but the end result will be so worth it.

And the return of Scott, he was only in on wednesday there, but we knew he was in again soon, so we divided up the half sleeve so that we could continue to work without going over newly tattooed skin. Today we concentrated on the underside of his upper arm, leaving the outside well alone.
it’s a memorial tattoo for his mum, so we included her dates in the clouds
