Japanese Geisha paint by Louis Santos

I enjoy digital painting, pros and cons with everything we do, and painting is no different. I love to mix a bit of fantasy, if i approach Japanese art, as in my opinion, it pushes ideas a bit further. I will be making a big print out of this paint, and hung it in the wall of our art gallery, in our Leeds city centre tattoo studio. 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!

New Hanya Mask Oil Painting by Louis

image

I’m in love with oil painting, i fell like I have finally found a medium that I can stick to, it is a slow process but I don’t mind, as I have a few paintings on the go, so the drying time is not an issue. This Hanya Mask I have recently finished, is a canvas project for an art shop in Leeds city centre called “Fred Aldous” they were really nice and allowed me to take my time and do my own thing. This painting is a give away, so I took the picture face on, so you guys fell free to copy it if you like. Keep and eye for more updates on art work and tattoos here on Familia Tattoo. Thank you

sparrow tattoo by Joe Galloway

sparrow tattoo - ribs

 

Finished adding a background on a rib tattoo today, a black & grey sparrow tattoo, done over two sessions as the ribs are a difficult spot for the client to sit for a long period of time. I made sure i did the background so the client can extend the piece if he wanted. Thanks for giving me artistic freedom also on this tattoo. My client sat extremely well for both sessions.
