Mandala Sleeve by Joe Galloway

Its been a pleasure tattooing Chloe over the years, we first started off with just one mandala on the top of her arm. She then wanted to turn this into a Mandala sleeve. Keeping the black and grey theme all the way with this one also. Each Mandala we have added into this sleeve has a meaning behind it. The way the shapes of each pattern form around the centre differs from each layer. We only need one more session onto the back area of the mandala sleeve then it will be complete. Thanks.

Koi Fish and Crane full sleeve tattoo by Joe Galloway

We started outlining the koi and crane tattoos in summer 2018. My client was really consistent with each sitting and we managed to get the koi fish and crane tattoo sleeve completed withing 6 months. We wanted a to complement the light colours of the cranes feathers with a darker approach to the background and koi fish. really happy with the outcome of this tattoo. we used a nice ocher for the ginkgo leafs making them sit on top.

Paul Weller Portrait by Louis

I was feeling lucky, when I got asked to do a portrait of Paul Weller in colour. The collector was very patient and considered what I had to say, I love drawing or tattooing old faces, it has a lot of character. Overall a great experience, thank you!

Portrait Tattoo by Louis Santos

This portrait is of Robert Falcon Scott, the first man who attempted to reach the South Pole, I love doing portraits, itโ€™s a challenge everytime, Iโ€™m studying how to draw portraits to deliver a better job when I tattoo it. Thank you
