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.

Cover Up tips

Here’s a nice coverup from today! While I prefer to avoid relying on black and gray to cover color, this design lent itself well for several reasons:

1. Size large – bigger always covers better than smaller.
2. Detail – serves well to distract from the underlying tattoo.
3. Shading and texture – the black shadows and textures provide ways to camoflage existing lines and color.
4. Flexibility – with coverups it’s always helpful to be willing to have some flexibility with everything from detail to size and position.

If you have questions about coverups, email me.

Extensive Geometric First Tattoo

Check out this first tattoo! Yes, you heard that right. His first tattoo.
 
 BOOM.
 
 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!
