matthew is starting on a new sleeve, it will compliment the black and grey one he has on his other arm, which is of skulls and scrolls. This time we are going for yet more classic imagery, a mermaid, a compass, some tragedy/ comedy masks and a variety of other little designs. Today we sketched in a couple of the main elements

It didn’t take marilyn long to decide that her flower piece should go right down to her ankle, so today we started at the bottom with some lily of the valley and some cornflowers. the marks above the tattooed section is just pen, where i was sketching out the rest of the lay out, which involves foxgloves, saxifrage and plenty of other nice flowers.

Brian was in for another session on his back, we blocked in a LOT of blue in the warrior’s kimono, once healed we will add a dark blue pattern over the top of it. Hats off to Brian for this monster session

stewart got his black and grey phoenix worked on, one more session to work on the flames that were just quickly sketched in last time. they will be in reds and oranges

This is the start of an epic backpiece on Ian! There will be an angel with elaborate wings next to the tiger, and a scottish landscape in the distance- a black and grey fantasy piece.

(I had katie in for another session on her art nouveau lady, but the pictures I took are so blurry in places, it’s not worth posting them on here. Sometimes I’m my own worst enemy…maybe it was a greasy finger on the lens of my phone. Next time I;’ll get good one.)

nearly there with Tony’s dragon! Unusual colours in this one, and i love it 🙂

last but not least, Gavin’s fixer upper, I’m reworking some amateurish flowers and adding some colours, I got to add some of my flowers from scratch, too, on the forearm and around the top of his shoulder. That makes the old piece blend in quite well. I hope i still have a picture of what it looked like before we started on our restoration, the difference is amazing I’m chuffed to say.

I want to add detailling and some more depth to some of the flowers, and once the lasering has worked it’s magic on the old tribal band, we will blend that section in better, too.
