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.

Free hand cover-up feather tattoo by Louis Santos

Victoria had a tattoo while in a boat trip, and it needed covering up. She asked for 2 feathers, to fit exactly on top of the tattoo she needed covering, I choose to free hand it. She wasn’t so specific with how she wanted it, so I choose to apply my own shading on it. Different from the picture she first brought to me.

Free hand skull tattoo by Louis Santos

Paul is a come back client, I originally did the “Liver bird” on top of his arm. He’s a big Liverpool fan. He surprised me, when asking for a skull on his forearm, he wants to incorporate the idea of, see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. So that’s the first of the 3 skulls, I enjoyed free handing straight on his arm. He was very easy going, can’t wait to get going next session. Thank you.
