He stopped after 4 hours so we will need to go back. But he touched up a few areas with white , on the teeth and lips, and the difference is night and day, especially where the bones are in the cheek....its really good

It looks more like Beth Heke after Jake's spent a weekend on the turps, than a Day of the Dead girl. Broken teeth, fat lips, two black eyes, bruised nose and blood smears. :lol:

Seriously...that's what I love about this thread. He is only half way through the tattoo dude...have you had a tattoo?

As I said...a few white lines change it completely...he built the base and then goes in for the fine work...

He had just started here

Its going to be a few weeks before he finishes it.......

Busy with this one right now . Its length and content were perfect to fill a long and thin gap I have on my lower arm.

What silly themes to have permanently on the body for people in their 50s.

You wouldn’t want a poster of this shite, let alone a tattoo.

I bet Sards has a one of those crappy wolf/moon duvet throws that you see in bogan’s houses.

Meh. I know, and have seen plenty more via the wonders of the internet, people in their 20s and 30s with horror themed tatts, they'll all be in their 50s one day and I'm sure, given their interests, that they'll still be happy with them then. In fact probably more so than someone who picks a trad design out of a book in the parlour.

People like what they like and that's ok.

The artist nailed it btw...positioned it perfectly. Wont share a pic yet because the red is still too bright. When it fades ( the red and white fades ) I will take another pic...

Actually here it is. Zoom in on the right hand. I don't know how he did that. Its not a large piece so details are difficult. Its basically a filler. I have fallen in love with this one...

Image

Still have to create a bed of skulls below her to finish that section of the arm...I am a bit conflicted about the bed of skulls. All the other pieces start as points or lines at the hand and grow into the piece on the arm...


When healed I want one correction...Left boob needs to be better defined and more voluminous. Needs so more white shading to better define the boobs...needs some intervention on the shading below the hairline. Looks like a skew nose under the sheath although it's not intended.

I got him to correct my Medusa and the snake head going around my knife on the forearm. That still needs to heal to see how it works but a huge improvement already. The artist who did the Medusa wanted to correct it himself but I cant trust him. Very happy with this artist that did my wifes Day of the dead girl and my latest.

Was looking to see if there were any good examples of Renaissance painting (or inspired) tattoos ... I guess as far as getting a Bosch painting done on your back, she could have gone for much more fudged up imagery!

A mate of mine had a grandfather who was in radio and who did voiceovers. He got his voice turned into soundwaves and then tattooed on his arm. He uses an app to scan the tattoo and it plays his grandfather saying a verse from a poem or something. It's rather amazing.

I'll see if I can find a video of him scanning it.

The chick above and the one someone reckoned was a mum who walked onto the set of Ink Master by mistake have reached the final. The ‘mum’ got tattoo of the day and immunity with this New School piece (which is also not her thing).

I can't help thinking it is a waste to have such brilliant art on a canvas that won't stay stable.

I think I've found my artist of choice for the sleeve idea I'm working on ... (not similar to any of these, but I love the quality of art/application!)

That top spoilered one is good. If you're on facebook or Instagram check out redemption tattoos or the primrose path tattoo society. They've got a few sleeves along those lines. If I ever get round to getting one I'll head to one of them I think.
