Portrait Tattoo by Louis Santos

This portrait is of Robert Falcon Scott, the first man who attempted to reach the South Pole, I love doing portraits, it’s a challenge everytime, I’m studying how to draw portraits to deliver a better job when I tattoo it. Thank you

dragon coverup by Joe

done over multiple sitting with martin, was a huge tribal coverup, rather than going darker with the background on this piece i had to make sure we balanced the dragons contrast so it stood out and covered up the tribal well. Really happy that we managed to cover up all the black and still make give the dragon detail and texture whilst keeping the simplicity on the scales.

 

Cover-up red roses by Louis

Cover-ups are always more work than a fresh tattoo, however I try to educate my clients about the process taking longer than normal. However my customer was great, she was very patient and allowed me to work with a good frame of mind. Thank you

samurai dagger by Joe

Something that i had drawn as flash was took by one of my existing clients, was super fun to tattoo! always fun to do smaller pieces as im currently working on so many larger scale pieces at the moment. Im hoping to draw up more flash throughout the year in between working on larger scale tattoos, i think drawing flash gives you total freedom into the piece as its purely drawn from yourself rather than someone giving you an idea. Thanks Mike

 

Black and Grey Tattoo Halloween by Louis

Adam was a such dream client, so easy going and chilled. He gave me an idea and gave me a lot of freedom to express myself, we had a good laugh in the process, and shared the same interests, maybe all these details contributed to the end result. Thank you Adam!
