I finished two big pieces recently, one of them the extensive scar cover up. Apologies for the number of pictures, I just couldn’t decide, she rocks her tattoo so well in each one!

 

and George’s octopus/necktopus is done. He really suits it, the blue of the tattoo brings out the blue of his eyes.

Gerald got a cool upside down moth on his sternum

another scar cover up, this is in a water colour style, works great to disguise scars. The quote is a song reference, and the water colour background is based on the artwork of the record. It seems a nice way to close the chapter on the self harming.

some flowers, california poppies- the start of a flower sleeve,

and blue orchids, a bit of a cover up going on there.

the start of a celtic themed piece with thistles and roses, colour to follow

and a traditional rose on the hand for Billy. The bee was already there. Next time we’ll join it up to the sleeve

work in progress with this badger and wild flowers piece (‘mon the badgers!)

and then two Alfonse Mucha inspired pieces, (one of my favourite artists and an inspiration of mine my whole career)

the first one is Beth’s mermaid and octopus sleeve, we’ve been chipping away at this piece slowly, but it’s starting to come together and look like a sleeve. There are little personal and film references scattered in the background, we will be adding blues and greens to complete the watery background

and this cover up is also inspired by Mucha, the distinctive ‘halo’ is still to come

this looks like I was trying to saw Dean’s arm off haha! I shouldn’t really be posting this, should I….

what was really going on

and Aileen’s phoenix is getting there. We are introducing patterns into the tail feathers that are a reference to the fabrics in her geisha tattoo, a bit different 🙂
