I had a girly day, two lovely ladies in!
The first one was Melanie, she’d had a fairy done by another artist, and wanted something to go down her back and tie the fairy and a lower back piece together. the fairy was also to be worked on a bit, firstly to cover her bottom a bit with some floaty fabric, and also to stop her from looking so floating. We will also work on the wings a bit more.
I remembered to take a phot of it before we started, but after I’d already started scribbling on her, so excuse the pen lines


and after today’s session. We outlined the new piece, next time we will shade and colour it and maybe add more wee bits here and there. this is just the bones of it for us to work from

then Ali got her first tattoo, a nice sprig of cherry branch, with a moon behind it

next day I started a dragon sleeve, Alan wanted a nice big, fierce looking beastie with water and four cherry blossoms. He’s got big arms, so the dragon turned out big indeed  😀

and last bust certainly not least, Bobby’s music themed sleeve is starting to take shape!

speaking of music, that’s me off for the rest of the week, as I’m going down to Blackpool for some live music, the Rebellion festival, yey!  😀
See you on the other side!

Stewart was after a half sleeve with a maple tree and some swallows, there will also be a pin up around the back of the arm and a nautical compass, this may seem like a fairly random selection of ideas, but Stewart is out at see for long periods of his time, and these are things that matter to him.
We got the tree and the outline of the swallows done, but it’s a good start.
It’s going to be a long project, trying to get Stewart an appointment is hard as he doesn’t know his time onshore, apart from living in Spain   😆
We will get there eventually.


After that Chris got some colour in the flowers we outlined last time, we are adding to a piece around the front of his arm, which he had done in another studio.
more shading and detail to go on this one


The next day was Glasgow for me, and another tree piece!
Josh likes all things Viking, and specially this particular carved viking boat which is in an Oslo museum. he has researched it and seen it, so we’ve included it.
Another passion of Josh’s is black metal, and the broken wood and snarled branches we have included at the bottom of the piece is a direct transciption of an image from a romanian death metal band’s album cover.

To me this piece is about the spirit of wood, living trees, carved wood and broken wood, but then I’m more ‘hippy’ than ‘black metal’  😆

This piece will be a half sleeve and will incorporate at least one viking rune carved into the roots of the tree, Josh is still deciding which one to go for.



and then for something quite different, Scott got a memorial tattoo for his mother, which was also a cover up. This is a clean and simple design, with punchy colours and soft textures.
