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.

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

Cover-up red roses by Louis

Cover-ups are always more work than a fresh tattoo, however I try to educate my clients about the process taking longer than normal. However my customer was great, she was very patient and allowed me to work with a good frame of mind. Thank you

Black and Grey Tattoo Halloween by Louis

Adam was a such dream client, so easy going and chilled. He gave me an idea and gave me a lot of freedom to express myself, we had a good laugh in the process, and shared the same interests, maybe all these details contributed to the end result. Thank you Adam!
