skull dragon sleeve by Joe

This was one of my first sleeves i had started as a tattoo artist, i learned alot doing this piece and i thank Matt for this dedication and commitment as a client. Really fun piece to work on and matt was really relaxed each session we had and gave me alot of freedom on the tattoo also. I look forward to adding more in the future on him and enjoyed listening to his travel stories! Please follow me on instagram @incognetojoe

thanks ^_^

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

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

 

anime tattoos

Its been great working on some anime pieces over the last few months, feel grateful for clients bringing me pieces which i loves to tattoo and feel really passionate about.One of the tattoos (the brand of sacrifice) is from an anime called berserk which was one of the first anime’s i watched! when i actually got the email about this piece i was watching the show!

I still need another session on the #itatchi piece and the shenron, haku sleeve. I cant wait to finish them!

here are a few pictures of some of the work i have been doing recently. check out my instagram @incognetojoe

Skuller cover up by @artofgallo

Sophie came to me with a tattoo she wanted covering up with a skull designs, I couldn’t really use a full skull because I needed to use the darkest area of the skull and largest (this been the open skull mouth). So i came up with an idea to use the top half of the skulls jaw to cover up the star. We will be adding a rose to this piece also. skulls are always super fun and organic to do, most of the the time i don’t look at much reference i just use my own shapes and textures. @artofgallo
