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.

Oriental Pagoda dragon tattoo by Joe

Was great to finally finish this Oriental Pagoda dragon tattoo for Rhiannon. I have been tattooing her for a few years now as one of my very first tattoos was done on her ribs. The pagoda is a tiered tower with multiple eaves. Built in traditions originating as stupa in historic Asia and further developed in East Asia. We also wanted to incorporate a dragon into the pagoda almost wrapping around the tower. Rhiannon also has a great interest in Oriental styles and is always great to tattoo. I loved having the dragon wrapping around the top area.

Zeus tattoo by Joe

Was really fun doing this black and gray Zeus tattoo for Alex. We did 90% of the tattoo and then he came back to add some small texture. We will be adding more onto this Zeus tattoo once my client decided how he wants to extend the tattoo into a half sleeve. Zeus was the king of the Greek gods who lived on Mount Olympus. He was the god of the sky and thunder. We didn’t add too much white as the skin tone give a lot of natural tones. Thanks for checking out my work. Joe

Mandala Sleeve by Joe Galloway

Its been a pleasure tattooing Chloe over the years, we first started off with just one mandala on the top of her arm. She then wanted to turn this into a Mandala sleeve. Keeping the black and grey theme all the way with this one also. Each Mandala we have added into this sleeve has a meaning behind it. The way the shapes of each pattern form around the centre differs from each layer. We only need one more session onto the back area of the mandala sleeve then it will be complete. Thanks.

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!
