30th May – 4th June

Posted: 05/06/2014 in Uncategorized

Kick ass Amy got another 7 1/2 hours done to her peacock, she is the one to beat, ladies and gentlemen!
We did a fair bit of colour on her hip and upper thigh, but had covered it by the time I took the photos at the end of the day. There will be a complete reveal when it’s all done πŸ™‚

The tail feathers on her back go in and around some older tribal pieces, once everything is healed we will assess if the tribal needs to be reworked or if it can stay the way it is. Now that the blues are fresh, it looks like they cover some of the tribal, but I know from experience that the black always comes through again in the end..whether you want it to, or not!

Another bird backpiece, this time Chris’ phoenix. We think we are done, except that we are now half thinking about adding some grey clouds in the background…I will print out a picture of his back, add some shading with a pencil, and see what we make of it.

Dave has been coming to get tattooed by me for a number of years, and now we are just tweaking a few wee things here and there, but essentially we are done with his sleeves and backpiece. He is getting some laser on some old pieces we worked around originally, but that are now bugging him, so they have to go. Once that is done, we will have created a bit of space to have creative fun.
Today we added a branch and a little snake to his chest piece

Ross is getting a samurai and flowers sleeve, we did a fair bit of background shading today.

this piece will be mostly black and grey with some muted colour accents.


Unlike Aileen’s piece, which is densely coloured! The geisha on her upper arm is practically just an excuse for the colourful fabrics that make up her kimono and flow down her arm. With Aileen’s perfectly white skin the colours show up beautifully, and she says people can’t take their eyes off her tattoo πŸ™‚
some more pattered fabric to go, and more work to the clouds in the background. We are also adding a big crane bird at the top of the design, to echo the small cranes on one of the fabrics

Kiaran has had a lot of tattoos done by different artists, and is now looking to bring them together in places with a nice background. We didn’t have much much time, but we made a start on clouds with movement and a couple of small birds

and last but not least, Kiera and her mermaid sleeve got another couple of hours of work done, we finished the water and now just have the mermaid herself to do, and the ribbons of seaweed. Again, perfectly white skin making the colours pop, Kiera gets a lot of comments about her vivid blues, too!
