Dragon and the bees

This is one of my old works, did it in about 2001 or 2002. The client now wishes to get rid of the green and to add the dragon, in blueish tones. I will also rework the bees and surroundings & will add some colour to them as well. As it was with the roses few posts ago – I haven’t done dragons few years as well and I totally love doing them again.

Here you go, this is how far we got this time:

Meanwhile, freehand sketch:

And this is how it looked before:

The same guy has on the other arm one other old work of mine as well, this is from the 2003 I reckon:

See on algselt minu tehtud vägaväga vana töö. Tehtud vist aastal 1998. Tol ajal muidugi ei olnud veel mingeid oskusi, masingi oli isetehtud – mikromootor, pastakas, kitarrikeel, lambilüliti jne. Toores värk.
Nüüd siis igatahes tegime selle üle. Joonistasin pliiatsiga enne umbmääraselt uue asetuse ja hakkasin kütma.Ühe korra vaja veel jooned teha korralikumaks ja valgega üle käia, siis on mõnus.

This is originally one of my really-really old work. I think it’s done back int he 1998. In that time I had no skill whatsoever and the “gun” was also handmade – cassette player motor, pen, guitar string. Rough.
Anyway, now de did it all over again. I drew some lines to make  a new shape to the lotus and then got into it. Needs one mor sitting for the outlines and white, then it’s nice.

Futurama

Need tööd tegin tegelikult juba aastal 2006. Nüüd hakkasime samale inimesele tegema üht uut pilti, mille kohta kirjutan  natuke hiljem.
Käesolevaid Futurama pilte on kah veel lõpetamiseks vaja natuke kohendada.

Tint: Millenium “MOM” sarjast, nimesid ei mäleta

I made these actually back in the 2006. Now we started to make a new tattoo to the same person, but I will show you this a bit later.
Those Futurama tattoos also need some touch-up’s to be finished.
Needle: don’t remember
Ink: Millenium “MOM”-s, but I don’t remember the exact names

Tegin need tätoveeringud esialgselt vist aastal 2000 või 2001. Tol ajal polnud mul veel ka päris korralikke masinaid ja värve. Nüüd siis tegime üle.
Nõel: 11round liner
Tint: K, I Aquamarine, I Snow-White Opaque

I did those tattos originally in 2000 or 2001. Back then I had shitty machnies and inks. So, no we did those again.

Vana pildi puhul ei mäleta ma nõela, kuid tint oli tookord Starbrite’i Tribal Black vist.

Circles. You can read something out of those, but I won’t tell you what. Tattoo on the lower pic is on the same person, but done in 2006.
Needle: 3round liner

I can’t remember the needle used for the older tat2, but ink was probably Starbrite Tribal Black.

andra_kaelAlgselt tehtud a la 2002 või 2003 aastal, nüüd värskendasime. Pildil tundub must, aga tegelikult on tumelilla.

Originally done in year 2002 or 2003. Freshed it now. Picture shows black, but it’s actually dark purple.
