well... mostly. ha!
Anyway, I've got a few pieces to show today, some stuff I've been working on the past few days. Lots of big projects, and not much finished, but they are turning out bad ass, so I figured I would show them off here and give you people something new to look at for your time. Lets see if we cant get more people to visit this old blog eh?
|The design itself was drawn by the collector. I just made a few adjustments for the cover up.|
This piece, on the Piercer, Brent at Artistic Tattoo, is something we have been working on for a couple years. My first head tattoo, initially, we didn't want to go overboard, but now, we're going all the way. The tattoo already covers his entire head, though all we worked on redoing today was the back. We still have to add more color to this dragon though before we move on the other three, and then the Foo Lions on his temples.
|He'll have fun sleeping on this one! ha!|
|Notice the subtle yin yang behind the bird.|
Finally, we have a piece that will be the cornerstone of a full sleeve. The collector already has a few older pieces on his arm, but with this design and the other designs I have in mind, we'll be transforming his arm of random stuff into a hell of a piece that will be a testament to his faith and struggles.
This part, a chess battle between good and evil - I have the chess board breaking up as the Black Queen shatters just before she can take the White King. and a floating White Knight in the foreground to emphasize the predominance of good. Still have a ways to go, shading of the chess pieces as well as building up more of the line work and adding marbling detail to the tiles. so far I'm really happy with this design and where it's going next. I'm even considering making an actual chess set based off the designs for this tattoo. I think it would be a lot of fun... but only when I have more time...
|Still so much to do|
but then, one thing at a time...
thanks for reading!
