I really love to do cover-up’s. It’s always a good challenge, to work the old tat into new one, making an illusion. With the dotwork & geometry tattoos it’s even a more of a challenge, cause those designs have a lot more air in them. Although, lately I like more and more the cover-up’s where the new tattoo is just a second layer, so the old & new kinda mix together.
So, few updates once again.
But first of all, I’d like to say that I really love tattooing. Just feelin’ it more and more again every day. I have had few breaks in the past and will have some more due to touring with my bands and some other acitivites, but I always end up making tattoos again, with fresh feel for it every time. Feels good.
Also, I finally got my new irons, Mickey Sharpz’s Line-O-Graph liner and Iron T-Dial shader. Really happy about it, my world has changed a bit since then. Been dreaming about Mickey Sharpz irons for quite a long time now, but for some reason never did got to buying. Anyway, got ’em now and they’re truly a great machines. Very smooth running.
Enough of the talk, here’s few photos of some work I’ve been up to lately.
Continued with the flowerish thing. Has some influences of Alfons Maria Mucha & John Dyer Baizley works. Needs background and some detailing. Blossom is still in the healing process, hence the bit of scabby look.
There’s some wings that needed to grow bigger, as time has passed by. Started with one, this needs some more work as well. The covering part is too obvious at the moment and gotta add some more colouring etc.
Quite often I have the trouble of finding good position for light when taking the photos, so the result is that the photo does no justice to the actual colours. Like it has happened again with this photo above and the first one in this post as well.
Going to continue with the mermaid back tomorrow, good fun.
