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


mandala sleeve by Joe

Completed Laura’s half mandala sleeve. done over 4 sessions. we started off by doing the main shoulder piece and then added the rest, all of the background and in between the mandalas was done free hand. Was super fun piece and i thank her for giving me a lot of freedom especially with the background. I wanted to make sure it all flowed well and so we could continue the sleeve in the future if she wishes. thanks for looking ^_^
