Day of the dead by Louis

I still love doing day of the deads, I know they have been done for a while now, but that won’t stop me to enjoy doing them, it’s really fun, without worrying about looking like a certain person. Adam wants a Halloween half sleeve, happy days! Look forward to each session!

Realistic Lion Tattoo by Louis

Lee asked me to do a realistic Lion tattoo, to symbolise him and his son. He was a bit nervous a first as it was his first tattoo, but once we got going, he did great, very patience lad, let me work with a good frame of mind, I can’t thanks him enough.

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.

We are blessed to have an awesome client like Tias. He is so easy going and chilled, that helps me to be able to work better with him. He gives me his ideas, and gives me the freedom, to do my own touches on it. I love tattooing him, I work in a good frame of mind, that helps to deliver a better tattoo. Thank you Tias.

New Hanya Mask Oil Painting by Louis

I’m in love with oil painting, i fell like I have finally found a medium that I can stick to, it is a slow process but I don’t mind, as I have a few paintings on the go, so the drying time is not an issue. This Hanya Mask I have recently finished, is a canvas project for an art shop in Leeds city centre called “Fred Aldous” they were really nice and allowed me to take my time and do my own thing. This painting is a give away, so I took the picture face on, so you guys fell free to copy it if you like. Keep and eye for more updates on art work and tattoos here on Familia Tattoo. Thank you

New oil painting by Louis

image

I got to finish this oil painting, I have been working for a few months, oil is a very slow process, but a very pleasant process. You have to wait until it dries, then add another layer. I can add as many layers as I wish, and it’s a very safe space to try new ideas. This oil painting combines my love for fantasy art, and my Roots, back when I was a child in Brazil. This Indian is like a vigilante from the jungle, who you clearly can’t mess with. I hope to carry on painting with oils as much as I can, I’m easing off on tattooing a bit, to be able to produce more oil paintings. I’m heavily inspired by an artist called “Raymond Swanland” at the moment, that guy is insane.
