Sunflower Half Sleeve

Solid start on this sunflower half sleeve! From sketch to tattoo, breaking out with texture, flow and color. And WHAT, this is his first tattoo. As the saying goes, “Go big or go home!”

Armour Full Sleeve

The Fun-O-Meter needle is topping out on this one!
 I spent the day in blacksmith mode, customizing this full sleeve of armour. I drew most of the design directly on his arm in order to maximize fit and flow within the design. Looking forward to phase two when we complete the coverup, add the chainmail and incorporate shading to provide texture and dimension.

Extensive Geometric First Tattoo

Check out this first tattoo! Yes, you heard that right. His first tattoo.
 This custom tattoo half sleeve was developed to fit and flow with the specific placement Josh requested. The detail and geometry within the tattoo were based on several reference images he provided that contained specific patterns he wanted to incorporate.
 And here’s the piece at the end of the first appointment. One more sitting to go!
