dragon painting by @joegallowatattoo

I started this drawing around Christmas time and i actually completely forgot about it due to me getting sick for a few weeks (some xmas bug that was going around ūüôĀ ) I then randomly came across the sketch and decided to start finishing the drawing getting it ready to paint! Worked on the background first and then started to add¬† a first layer onto my foreground. After letting it dry I then added details mainly into the dragons head and scales. Fun piece to paint, never get bored of dragon, they always come out different and have there own unique personalities ^_^ Please follow me @joegallotattoo13220522_10156930915970385_2424656566102473537_o

It was such a great experience tattooing a fantasy dragon Andy, first he was really nice and easy going, gave me artistic freedom and not once asked when the tattoo was going to be done, it was a very natural process. It was also a tender area to tattoo so I also had to be patient with him, as he wasn’t able to sit for the full amount of time we had booked,¬†which¬†is completely fine with me. In the end of the day for a successful tattoo requires patience from both sides, the tattoo artist and the customer.Thank you Andy

Geisha with dragon tattoo sketch

I have done this japanese drawing with charcoal and graphite. That japanese geisha tattoo fantasy style drawing is where i am trying to push my art towards. I love doing japanese with a fantasy twist. It is a little daring as i understand japanese culture has rules and a historic background, which i do respect. More about this Tattoo

Geisha smallest of all jpeg

Japanese Geisha tattoo, all designed by hand. I tried to achieve a organic look to it, trying to avoid tracing. Tracing achieves a hyper realistic perfect look, but also look slightly souless. Adam is a really dedicated client, his loyalty has achieved the end result of his tattoo progress. Thank you for making such a relaxing enviroment.

sparrow tattoo by Joe Galloway

sparrow tattoo - ribs

 

Finished adding a background on a rib tattoo today, a black & grey sparrow tattoo, done over two sessions as the ribs are a difficult spot for the client to sit for a long period of time. I made sure i did the background so the client can extend the piece if he wanted. Thanks for giving me artistic freedom also on this tattoo. My client sat extremely well for both sessions.
