Rose & cover-up

Lovely old school rose with the hinge, on the arm:

And a cover-up. Obviously it’s still a work in progress. Going to be a tree, branches & maple leaves.

Om

Some recent stuff:

Dotworked Om on a Seal crew truckdriver’s chest. Guy is collecting tats from around the world.

A little girl from one of Estonia’s children books, onto a guy from Japan:

Also finished Talbot’s new shirt design. Printed few shirts for recent small Finnish tour already but will print more shirts in the near future, for selling online.

And a tune to go with the Om theme:

Some new stuff after a while

Hello there again.

I haven’t been posting a while, been touring with the band, Talbot; organizing the festival Heliosphere etc. Back on the needlework now tho, full of urge to shove the ink.

This is actually going to be the main site now for Talk Left-Handed – for everything I do that is. Be it music, tattoos, drawing, screenprinting, festival or whatever I feel like.
Hope you’ll enjoy.

For starters, here’s few tats I’ve been lately working on:

The result of first sitting:

The one that needs the covering (author of this tat2 is unknown to me):

The rough positioning sketch:

And the freehand drawing before letting the needle do the work:

For this tattoo client sent me the photo of the tiger, with only solid black lines. I added some shading & red and since I’m really into dotwork lately, then added some dots as well:
