Started a load of new tattoos recently , jumped ahead on an in progress backpiece to put this lotus on fire on the throat ,
Knocked on in 2hrs to be continued onto chest next and joining the backpiece below ♠️
Lining this new backpiece out was a punishing session ,But looking forward to the end result
enjoying this koi and hibiscus 3/4 sleeve
Lyles sleeve has been one of my favourites in a while, both original and free of any real interference from the client ,I’m happy with its simplistic form and flow
Thrashed out this white koi on a shin in one full day session , looking forward to doing the rest !
Another pair of his n hers hands , on a barber kev from Mohair in the city centre I paid particular attention to the gentlemans haircut
This colourful dragon sleeve started of with a one point Buddah head then quickly developed into a large sleeve here’s the progress after a full day sitting , these are £450 and gives you from 11-6 with a short lunch break
A couple of discreet coverups in this sleeve , I was given the choice by the customer to go for colour or black and grey , it was more of a challenge to do it without the iconic colours , I’m happy with the results ,here’s Thor,spidey,captain America,iron man and hulk
Been putting this foo dog on Duncan’s ribs ,large scale work here and tough sittings to lay in the colour , added this little turtle of longevity (minogame) on the lower with another to follow just above the knee ,
In Japan, the turtle has developed a more independent tradition than the other three prominent beasts of China. The minogame (蓑亀?), which is so old it has a train of seaweed growing on its back, is a symbol of longevity and felicity. A minogame has an important role in the well-known legend of Urashima Tarō.
According to traditional Japanese beliefs, the tortoise is a haven for immortals and the world mountain, and symbolizes longevity, good luck, and support. It is the symbol of Kumpira, the god of seafaring people.
Timeless Tattoo was again at the Scottish Tattoo Convention , I worked on the Sunday ,show casing 2 large in progress back pieces ,hit and run this time as I’m in the middle of moving house ,here’s some photos
See you there next year !
