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!
Joe Galloway – Black & Grey Tattoo Sleeve Progression
Black & Grey Tattoo – Sleeve progression. Started this as a cover up at the top then worked our way down adding pieces that Dave had asked for. Some areas of the tattoo are still healing so slightly scabby in some parts. We will be adding more when he returns to the UK. Keeping it all black & grey mainly themed around his family.

Familia Tattoo Nerd Week
It is with pleasure, that Louis Santos and Joe Galloway present, The “Familia Tattoo Nerd Week”. We are going to spend a whole week tattooing video game characters and Comic super-heroes or villains.
As we know how far computer games have developed nowadays, we fell like its a way to inspire us artistically. As our childhood was spent mostly playing computer games, and reading comic books, we felt it was a good way to translate to tattooing, an art form that we spent most of our childhood admiring.
We would like to invite you all who like computer games or comic heroes to participate in this week of celebration of an art form, that nowadays have become even more successful than movies.
Dates to be announced in November.
Familia Tattoo Studio Leeds
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.
Black & Grey Sparrow Tattoo
Finished shading in the sparrow tattoo today, we just need one more session to finish off the background on this piece and it will be complete, Familia tattoo Leeds. Thanks, Joe
