jacky got a beautiful wee snowdrop

and coco got some more background to his skulls. It’s turning into a body suit! we are now filling in the gaps

Craig is getting a sleeve with koi and a koi dragon at the top. today we made a start on the background, this piece will be mostly black and grey with some autumnal colours in the leaves

Pauline had some old scars on her abdomen from some surgical procedures, our plan was to distract from them with a nice wee dragon and some flowers. The skin is a bit buckled where the scars are, we can’t change that, but we can draw the eye away from it as much as possible.

Ali had an old tiger head tattoo, proper old school, and he wanted me to work around it and add some tiger lilies to make it into a bigger piece. I did that, and added some colour and a little bit of shading to the tiger to blend it in with the new piece a bit. It is what it is, however, and at that size there’s not much else i can do to it. It’s got a certain old school charm.

Ali wanted one of the lilies left white

Another piece where I’m working around some existing tattoo work, Alex has a wood nymph kind of thing going on by another artist, and was after some cute little additions, a gnome, some mice, flowers, etc. We had some fun with this, even though it’s just the outline so far, colour next time, plus a thistle leading down onto he forearm

Sorry about the crap photos, Ross’ piece is actually quite striking in real life, just the photo makes it look a bit murky. I’ll try and get better ones next time, we’re nearly done with this, just some more yellows and browns to go in the hair of the dragon and some general tidying up

deborah’s first piece! She sat like a champ

then more roses, Gary’s three roses we did a while ago are turning into a half sleeve, so we added a big one under the upper arm with plans for another one at the back, we ran out of time.
