first tattoo of the week was adding some colour to gareth’s phoenix, it wasn’t a particularly long session, but we got most of one of the wings done

Justine got some flowers added to her backpiece, this has been tackled in stages, but we knew from the beginning that it was going to cover the whole back. Sometimes i design and outline the whole thing in the first session, specially if the flow of the piece is complex, but with this tattoo we were growing organically up the back, so we could complete the sections as we added them. that did mean that Justine didn’t have to walk about with lots of unfinished tattoo work on her.

after a long while Coco was in to get his flames finished, now we’ve just got to add some smoke winding up the sides of the poster and we’re getting there

the next day was a weegie wednesday, kicking off with Josh and his Viking boat piece.
It’s finished now, what started as a vague nordic kind of concept came together nicely in this, I’m really pleased how it turned out. It’s more of a mood than a narrative, Josh’s tattoo doesn’t really explain anything, but just has atmosphere. A bit bleak with an edge of destruction thrown in  😀

and then our Brunella got some more done to her green man/creature piece, there will be more leaves over the hips and a tree at the top
