Here’s a portion of an extensive Blue Whale back piece. We’re using the bubbles bring energy, texture and depth to the expanses of ocean blue. Bubbles rock!
Hey Hey Hey… this is going to be one sweet cover up! Joe wanted to keep his moon design while covering the existing bicep band. The plan was an extensive tribal piece. I sketched a basic concept on paper, and then we spent the first hour of his appointment customizing the design to tailor fit his arm. What you see here is phase one… the outline of the new piece. Stay tuned for phase two: super sweet solid tribal fill… coming up in a couple of weeks!
Evolution of a tattoo, from concept sketch to completed half sleeve. Sunflowers were the central theme, one for each of his daughters with a glowing star for his wife. But there were a few other considerations as well because he really wanted a half sleeve and wanted to avoid something “too” floral while having a piece flowed naturally with his arm. I sketched the concept art (see left), using movement, flow and color to set off the sunflowers. A few sessions later this sweet half sleeve was complete.
