If there is one subject matter I may never grow tired of it’s skulls (of any sentient being). I started and finished this sheet this month; the bottom two designs are reworks of some Bob Wicks flash. Since the page was kind of crowded already I decided to use the background as a Japanese study. There were some good learns: how to shade in clouds (I fucked up the left half and did a better job on the right) as well as some of the rules of waves.
I’m excited to say I got to do my first Misfits tattoo yesterday! Without a doubt one of my favorite punk bands. I was honored to have Matty ask me to tattoo him as he’s been a client of Danh’s for some time.
Thanks for looking.
So I had the pleasure of tattooing one of my oldest riding buddies here in NYC yesterday. It’s always good catching up with old friends.
The old, about a year or so since we did this Panther head.
Thanks again Phil!
I love walk-ins. Some can be done on the fly, while others require hours of research and drawing. These two are my favorites recently. Kristy’s Roses were done over two sessions and Kat’s compass/clock took me many hours of cross eyed drawing before we sat down to knock it out in one session.
I also painted this recently and would love to tattoo any or all of these designs! I also have a folder of line drawings of designs that I’d love to tattoo. Come by the shop Sunday-Wednesday and say hi.
This was a hell of a lot of fun to do! Thanks again Tyler.
It’s typical for someone to walk in with a drawing or photo of what they want tattooed. Certain people are dead set on the picture in their hand, others (thank the stars) are as flexible as snakes. This is an example of a client trusting me enough collaborate on the final product.
This is what she brought in.
After a consultation, some sketching, feedback on my drawing from the client and feedback from my mentor there after, this is what we finally ended up with. Thanks again Queenie!!
