Blackwork halfsleeve

Well, black- & redwork, actually.
This is the last teaser before it’s done, next time you’ll see the finished piece.
Needs one more layer for the solid colored areas and a bit of contrast for the dots here’n’there.

Two nice and minimal tattoos:

Also, I have a new track out with my electronic/techno project Skull Trading.

Here’s an illustration for “Mennään tästä”:

Lizard.

Customer from Germany wanted a lizard. He’s interested in the aboriginal art and celtic knotwork and wanted to have some dotwork as well. So I tried to combine it all together and it came out like this. Super happy with the result. One sitting, nine hours in a row altogether with the freehand sketching onto the skin and preparations etc. Time well spent.

He’s also playing bass and didgeridoo in a band called Tuareg, check it out from these links:

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.
