Death by Joe

I drew this piece a while back just for fun and for practicing my skulls and snakes! gratefully then someone asked me for a tattoo version which i was very pleased to do! really fun piece and total freedom given. thanks Harriet. @incognetojoe

Dragon tattoo by Joe

had the pleasure of tattooing Gundia from china over the past couple of months. He came to me wanting a Chinese style dragon quarter sleeve. Chinese style tattoos i find are slightly more lose than a tradition Japanese tattoo. Both styles in my eyes look amazing tattooed and healed even after many years. Each session he sat amazingly well and never complained once! I hope to see him one day when I go visit mainland china 🙂 thanks , Joe

Day of the dead by Louis

I still love doing day of the deads, I know they have been done for a while now, but that won’t stop me to enjoy doing them, it’s really fun, without worrying about looking like a certain person. Adam wants a Halloween half sleeve, happy days! Look forward to each session!

Realistic Lion Tattoo by Louis

Lee asked me to do a realistic Lion tattoo, to symbolise him and his son. He was a bit nervous a first as it was his first tattoo, but once we got going, he did great, very patience lad, let me work with a good frame of mind, I can’t thanks him enough.

sunflower cover up by Joe

Lilly had first came for a consultation to discuss covering her old tattoo which was some script on her arm. Originally we went for roses but then Lilly had a change of mind and we booked again for another session. I cant stress enough how important it is for the client to be 100% with the image they want, I would rather re book and spend time planning a little and drawing a new piece rather than a list minute job, it was a tricky coverup because of the size and scale Lilly wanted the flower and how much we could use to cover the old tattoo. But I came up with a final design for her and everything went smoothly in the end,  and the sun flower tattoo came out like i imagined . feeling grateful 🙂 @incognetojoe
