..after a long time we finally continued on the jacqui-oakley-sleeve.. not done, but so much fun mixing all these colors :)
..yeeha, new project! first session..
..startet my first kinda portrait yesterday.. a trinacria.. needs some tightening work around the eyes, nose, lips and..everywhere.. but i think it´s ok for the first session..
she wanted a “trinacria”, the blazon of Sicily/Italy, where her mom is born.. if you google trinacria+tattoos, you find some really scary stuff, which i wanted to avoid.. so i used a pic of her mom in her 20ies to build up the face, and instead of three legs i put the map of sicily there with messina highlightet, the region she was born in.. next time we put a wing to the left, and a snake on top.. and some curly hair floating over her shoulder..
so much fun, and i love tattooing eyes/girl faces.. if you want some, jump over :)
double premiere..my first hand..fuckadiddelidoo..this happens, if you let me do, what i want ;) ..and my first “all-seeing eye”, which shouldn´t look like all the neo-traditional stuff, thats so hot right now.. i´m so thankful, that she trusted me without even meeting me before.. and she sat there for 5 hours like a champ, silently crying, but not complaining ;) needs a final touch, but fuckyeah, i´m stoked by this day :)
..simon had a session on his geisha-chest.. she had to be done, was just a sketch the first time.. now we´re getting closer..
..what startet as a tiny feather developed into a bigger one.. she did the brush-stripes with acrylic by herself and the quotation is from the movie “chocolat” ..sure, it is a bit “buena-vista-tattoo-club”-ish.. but why not? bvtc is one of the studios i really admire, and volko was one of the reasons i startet tattooing.
..these are just some black parts of this picture ripped apart and rebuild to fit on the arm.. she has many scars on it (all this reddish marks),and we want to hide it a bit.. last session is a few month gone, and i hope, we continue next month..
..two days ago i started a new project.. this will be a full leg from ass to toe one day, full of animals and flowers.. first session, outlined and shadowed three of countless..
..and it will get a full background and colours en masse..
..dunno, how much time it will take, but my trustful client doesn´t mind.. i can´t tell, how much i appreciate this..!
..i think it´s obvious, that “watership down” was one my favourite childhood-movies.. this bunny is definetly inspired by hazel, but i tried, not to make a simple copy..
..one more session on the treehouse.. looks a bit rough and bloody, took the photo in a hurry, cuz she´s got to reach her train.. lot more to come.. full background, and another motive on the inside..
..yesterday we pumped some blue onto guido´s arm.. now just one more figure, then backgrounds and we´re done..
..2nd session done, daniel got some deamons and background, they almost surround his leg now, so the pic is puzzled.. next time i´ll make a better one, promised.. two sessions left..maybe three, because he´s kinda pussy ;)
