12th + 13th december

Becca had some issues with an existing tribal piece, it didn’t quite flow right and had been added to at various stages by previous tattooists. The main problem was that to fix the tribal itself, we’d need to go much bolder and thicker in an attempt to being some shape back into it, but that wasn’t really what becca was after. So after some deliberation, it was decided to fight fire with fire, and to add some even more detailled pieces, to draw the eye away from the tribal, and simultaneously cover parts of it up, or disguise it at least. We didn’t have much time to tattoo, so we only got one of the flowers done, but the result is definitely heading in the right direction.

Darren got some colour put in his flowers and we shaded the second koi

and Bryan got his sleeve finished. We wanted to incorporate the old tribal piece, not hide it, so we built the rest of the design around it, without making it the centre piece

and Bryan himself  😀

    The cover up and addition work looks good, and you can see why its so important to go to a proper real Ink Pro rather than a cheapie backstreet joint. Your future depends on it, and it just ends up costing you twice over.

    Bryans sleeve – now thats WOW! love the life and vibrancy. Think I just found who I want to do my right thigh piece 🙂

    Love the blog, cheers for sharing!
