This portrait is of Robert Falcon Scott, the first man who attempted to reach the South Pole, I love doing portraits, it’s a challenge everytime, I’m studying how to draw portraits to deliver a better job when I tattoo it. Thank you
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.
Something that i had drawn as flash was took by one of my existing clients, was super fun to tattoo! always fun to do smaller pieces as im currently working on so many larger scale pieces at the moment. Im hoping to draw up more flash throughout the year in between working on larger scale tattoos, i think drawing flash gives you total freedom into the piece as its purely drawn from yourself rather than someone giving you an idea. Thanks Mike
