changing the desktop image at work seems to be a favourite past time of the receptionists, usually the desired effect is to freak the artists out when they open the computer in the morning. well, Laura got me with this one at tribe 3, Lemmy as a ‘sexy’ teen idol! terrifying!

now it’s my turn to freak you out, by showing you ozzy Bill’s elbow, we blacked it out as part of his ongoing project whereby he covers his arms and legs in big black blocks. The elbow is an ouchy one, and will probably need a second coat, as the skin there doesn’t really take the ink that well. Bill’s elbow will be quite swollen after this…

Neil asked me to add some lilies o connect some existing work on his upper and lower arm (not by me) soft grey works well here, and the lilies will lighten up about 20% by the time they are healed, and will only add background to his sleeve.

I had darrell in for a short finishing up session, to let me tweak details and smooth out gradients here and there. Now i am finally signing this piece off šŸ™‚

I love this picture of Brad! We added a second dove today, taken from a piece of graffiti Brad photographed in the westbank. They are fairly simple and rough designs, and I love how they take the place of swallows in this tattoo composition.

Speaking of composition, this will be a whole chest and stomach piece, the christ on the cross will be in the foreground, and a landscape fading into the distance behind him. A major WIP

Craig got his dragon and koi finished

and Amy is going for some colour to frame her mostly black and grey backpiece we did a couple of years ago

the upper section of alex’s stag sleeve needs some more work

I am working towards Tony’s cover up on his upper arm. As we had been tattooing his sleeve whilst there was some lasering going on, I had left the place in question on his upper arm to last. I’d been gradually encroaching on the cover up, and now there is just a feather and some flames left blank. Laura will be lasering it one more time i think, before I move in with colour. The feathers will have more detail added, as will the moths

this is the beautiful bird Tony chose for inspiration for his phoenix
