Buddha realistic tattoo

Thanks for looking at our site. This Buddha tattoo was done this year, I love doing Buddhas, i feel like I almost attract their piece and calmness while doing them. And about approaching them, there’s so much you can do and create, it’s almost like there’s no limits. Also tattooing Andy is a bonus, he’s such a gentleman, and he just lets the tattoo happen, in a consequence we get a lot of work done, because we are not worried about when’s going to be done, what it is, is what it is. So I work in a good frame of mind with Andy, thank you so much for getting tattooed by me for so many years. Can’t wait to be back at work tomorrow.

We are re-opening on December 4th

Hello folks. We are re-opening the studio on December 4th. However, as we had to close the studio last month, we had to book all our clients from last month to this month. So we are open for consultations only, for getting a tattoo, it would have to be around Jan-Feb, this time of the year is not the busiest for us. As when we approach around March and May, we get really busy, and we could be booked up for 3 months sometimes. We understand not everyone wants to wait fo their tattoo, however, the reason why we have a waiting list, is because we try to take care of each client, each day, and treat them like a human being, and not like a piece of paper. We only do one or 2 tattoos per day maximum, but we have time to interact with the clients, and make them a drink, and give them a good experience. We believe next year we will go back in to lockdown again, I believe today this lockdown is over, and some people will think the virus is over. And around Christmas a lot of people are not going to care, and we can see another lockdown coming in our way next year. I know we are facing weird times, I’m just glad I’m an artist, and I can put my head down and forget about the world for a while, and that’s a blessing. Thank you for reading, and keep safe.

Oil on canvas. Tattoo Artist in lock down

Hello everyone, thanks for visiting our site. The lockdown is nearly over, hopefully, they will not extend this lock down for longer, and give us the opportunity to work. I have been working on my traditional oil painting every so often. In the era of digital art, I still go back to the roots of traditional painting as it requires you to think more and being careful with every move you make, as we do not have a delete button on a traditional canvas, it’s in my opinion similar to tattooing, as in every decision you make it leaves a mark in the canvas, so the thought process is at larger scale compare to digital painting. In this oils painting, I had the idea of a mermaid fighting an Egyptian female warrior, I’m a big fan of Egyptian culture and fantasy art. Keep an eye for more updates on the final complete image of this oil painting.

Native Indian black and grey pencil drawing by Louis Santos

Hello everyone, thanks for visiting our site. In times of lockdown we are faced with a mental and patience challenge, specially for those who love to socialise. For us artists it’s not so bad, as we do have something to throw ourselves to, and scape from the real world. As I’m not in control with what’s going on around us, it’s a blessing to be able to loose myself in to a drawing or a paint. With this drawing, I have tried to achieve an Old Native American Indian. He’s a Tattoo Master, who becomes art with his paint brush in his hand. The engraved tattoo machine in his hat and his tattooed experience face, is also engraved in his soul. The noise of the outside world will not take him away from his artistic journey.

we hope everyone is keeping safe, and be sure to follow us on instagram@familiatattooleeds

Greek Mythology Medusa by Louis

Thanks for looking at our site. In times of lockdown I’m having time to go over my camera and dish out tattoos I have done in the past few weeks. This Tattoo was Johns first tattoo, what a nice lad. I was really happy with his request, as I love Greek Mythology related tattoos. We are gonna be working on Johns full sleeve after the lock down. We are going to be drawing a Poseidon for his bottom half sleeve. This tattoo was very detailed, however John was patient and stuck throughout the process, he went home twice with his tattoo unfinished, and not once questioned anything, as being judgemental while your tattoo is unfinished, is not having faith in your tattoo artist. On large tattoos, only the patient and the ones who have faith, are the ones who get the end result. We hope everyone is keeping safe and well. Keep an eye for more updates @familiatattooleeds
