Sunflower tattoo coverup

Black and grey sunflowers done over two sittings. Also covering up some writing luckily was fine lined. First sitting we got the basics down and free handing some background. I wanted the tattoo to have some natural flow which free hand allows. I used a black of black and grey wash and solids. On the last session we used a solid grey and white giving texture to the sunflowers. I was grateful for my client traveling to Leeds for this tattoo.

Angel Half Sleeve tattoo by Louis Santos

half sleeve tattoo

Last session on a black and grey half sleeve tattoo. It’s all custom designed by hand, some free hand on the background and doves. Awesome client, very patient and chilled, gave me artistic freedom. After his holiday in July, he will be back for the bottom of his arm to complete a angel/religious full sleeve, thank you.
