Dissolution

Slipping mask of sanity

This was the last of the free dissolution tattoos done on a long time customer and friend (my favourite cocktail maker) it was meant to represent the invisible man , though I know this guys a fan of American psycho, studying the book for his English writing course ,
With many things in life , it’s open to interpretation and I feel it could be Bateman fizzing away behind the glasses .
I have a book filling up of these designs I’ll be taking them to the Scottish and the Amsterdam tattoo conventions this year
and also my visit to Sang Bleu London in July .

With the shop getting busier than ever I’m finding it hard to work my days off to make these tattoos now
