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

 

Colour Flower by Louis

This detailed flower tattoo, has tested my capabilities a bit, really detailed tattoos are really easy to loose the stencil, then you have to be able to draw to complete the process while you tattooing. After all I had good fun with it, the client was patience, came back for a touch-up session, had faith in the process, here is the end result, thank you.

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

New Lion statue Tattoo by Louis

I had such a good experience with James. It was his first tattoo at the age of 39, he was sensible and patient, he understood that if he wanted a decent tattoo it would need a lot of patience. I really took my time with it, as he allowed me to. I did not fell under pressure for a second. Overall a great experience, would look forward to tattoo him again. Thank you James.

Phoenix Tattoo all healed by Louis

I had the opportunity to get a picture taken of the Phoenix Tattoo, I did on Edwards, a few months ago. I didn’t expect to take a picture of it all healed, as he had to leave the country no long after the tattoo was finished. It was a pleasure seeing him, as we had a top laugh during his tattoo process. He’s now back for his second tattoo, I’m sure we gonna have a top time. Thank you for being awesome.
