done over multiple sitting with martin, was a huge tribal coverup, rather than going darker with the background on this piece i had to make sure we balanced the dragons contrast so it stood out and covered up the tribal well. Really happy that we managed to cover up all the black and still make give the dragon detail and texture whilst keeping the simplicity on the scales.
I always try to push each dragon i do to the next level, I know that level of detail i want whilst balancing it with simplicity, you can texture every area of the tattoo, I believe in laying down how you envision the subject your tattooing/drawing, but also making sure its clear and going to last the client a lifetime.
Last drawing of 2014, will be doing that tomorrow, had a great year, thanks to everyone that has been a part of it. Next year im gonna take one day off a week to focus on drawing and painting more, I love tattooing but next year im doing less tattooing and more studying and painting, take a step back, and try to have a bit of a life as well. Happy new year!!!! #tattooleeds #leedstattoo #tattooartistleeds #budha #budhadesign #budhaart #tattooidea #customtattoo #santos #santostattoo #louissantostattoo #leedscustomtattoo #draw #drawing #fun #artwork #customtattooleeds #drawingoftheday #sketchoftheday #sketch #pencil #lovepencil

Mandala tattoo took two sessions because of the amount of detail that Joe Galloway wanted to give to this tattoo.
