Painting at high speeds

When I got home from Okinawa I was full of ideas for painting ,Satorus paintings had me thinking I had to get my game on and improve my technique
I set about doing one painting a day., paintings are essentially boring and lack the free spirit of sketching but it has a direct reflection on your work ,you generally find if someone’s paintings are tidy their tattoos will be also,it’s hard to set aside a life time of drawing freely and adopt a set procedure to make a tight painting, this is where tattooing in turn influences the painting procedure in draughtsmanship .

Here’s an example of foo dog painting by Satoru and an unfinished tattoo of a foo dog head the approach is worked out in the drawings and the tattoos are mega clean ,


Here’s a slice of 3 of the 12 paintings I made , they will be available as paired up prints 2to an A3sheet


Some didn’t make completion ,!

Irezumi Tattoo Glasgow,

i’ve been a Regular of Irezumi Tattoo Studio Since 2004 ive had almost all my tattoos done at this shop i had both my sleeves done before i started tattooing in 2005/6

The shop has survived on its good reputation in the sleepy Dowanhill Street just of Byres Road in the West end of Glasgow with Steven Wrigley knocking out 1st class tattoos since he left  his father Terrys shop and opened Irezumi in the late 1990’s,

the shop is known for its Japanese style work and Traditional Tattoos ,its hard to explain the impact of seeing Stevens work around in Glasgow and the photos of large scale colorwork that adorned the walls of the shop on my first few visits If you pick up a tattoo magazine from around this era it’s not too hard too see why it blew me away,

heres all the work i have had done at irezumi so far, i plan to complete my bodysuit there as a testament to the eye opening affect it had on me then an now and its influence on my own Tattoo Career.

you can find Steven Wrigley and Stephen Kelly there tues to sat if you fancy gettin yourself a piece of Glasgows Tatttooing Legacy,
