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, it’s a challenge everytime, I’m studying how to draw portraits to deliver a better job when I tattoo it. Thank you
