One pass hands Comic Tattoos by Louis Santos

Hand tattoos usually needs touching up, as we are always moving our hands. In this case i asked my client to take a few days off to rest his hands. And in one pass, we have achieved a solid tattoo on our first session. After care is important, and if the client listens to what we advice, we can achieve better healing, thank you!

Dragon tattoo half sleeve by Joe Galloway

Finished my good friend tommys dragon tattoo today! Tommy wanted a more chinese style look to his dragon with a darker look compared to say a Japanese style. We did moslty grey lining and then built it up from there. We added alot of detail into the body and background than a traditional look. We addded alot of shadows into the scales to give a little depth. Really love the outcome of this dragon tattoo! thanks tommy! click here to follow joe on instagram!

I love sketching with pencils. and playing around with shadows. Practising on a paper, it allows me to try different ideas before attempting the skin. Never stop learning, thank you!
