Bits & pieces

Been a lot of work to do – tattooing, traveling and performing with the Talbot etc. Here’s few of the latest works for you.

This is just a teaser of one project that’s still in progress. Black is healed, waiting for the second layer; red is freshly done:

This one is a work in progress as well, it’s going to be a full phoenix down the arm:

A snowflake, obviously:

Lil’ (water)colourish action here:

And a paw & some feathers:

So, those are just some of the latest things in the works.

Mermaid cover-up back finished

Yes, finally. Took a bit under a year, although it would of been finished earlier if we’d work on it more regularily.
Since it’s a cover-up, then here’s a pic of what it looked like BEFORE:

And this is the AFTER pic (some parts are freshly done):

Also, a lot of thanks and congratulations to the Radio Mania’s team – on their birthday concert at Rock Cafe (Tallinn, EST), they awarded my doom-sludge band Talbot with the “Surprise of the Year 2011” award. Lovely.

Wine tree & blackening

This client came in from London and he had a desire for a sleeve with the evolution of a wine tree. It grows and it dies. Plus some features: daisy, rose, juniper berries, cornflower, corkscrew etc. So I thought it would be cool if the things would hang in the winetree’s vines and the cornflower would be like Japanese cherry blossoms, with the petals flying around.
Needs some more sessions of course.

Thank you for travelling, Artur.

And this is yet another project I started. It’s just the first layer of ink there at the moment. I really do like these kind of big monolithic tattoos. Nicery, I would say.
The “things” on the upper part is just a lil’ something something til we continue with this project.
An solid black arm. Later on it will also have some trees and probably a cat.
We’ll see.

And, I will be in St.Petersburg, Russia, tomorrow. Talbot is playing there, at MadStream Music Festival in club Aurora, with other nice bands such as The Ocean (GER), Heavy Lord (N), General Lee (FRA) & EF (SWE). Really looking forward to it, cause last time, in the beginning of our Russian tour “Tour de Balalaika 2011” we had to cancel St.petersburg show because of the failure with our van.

Talbot’s live video from the show in Tokyo

Yep. It’s in quite bearable quality. The entire show, filmed on December 3rd, 2011, at the club Moon Step in Tokyo, Japan. This was one of the eight shows of our Japan tour – “Tour de Ninja 2011”.

Enjoy.
