Tattooing a chicken

I confused a friend last night when I said, “Hey! I tattooed a chicken today!” Because she thought I meant I tattooed an actual chicken, when really I tattooed a chicken on an actual human. Yeah. So I just wanted to clear that up.

Old World Celtic

Here’s a tattoo flashback… Michael’s Celtic half sleeve honoring Brian Boru and Michael’s own piping! The weathered wood texture was a nice addition to this piece, giving it an old world feel.

Batik style

This awesome piece was rendered closely from the batik original, which lends a natural feel to the overall design. Good times!

Tattooing in reverse

Hey now, this was fun!

Tattooing in reverse, in a way. The original was about fifteen years old and super tight on detail. The lines closed together and the tattoo fuzzed out.

Today was phase one of bringing it back to life!

Power goes to Eleven

This bio mechanical piece started with a basic concept drawing. Once we laid down the outline, we went nuts with shading for dimension and then texture to provide the *popping* contrast and motion.

All. Kinds. Of. Fun.
