Update on the snake

Been a while once again.
We’re back from the Tour de Balalaika 2011 with Talbot. Russia and Ukraine – really cool places. Will definitely go back there.

Having few weeks off before the next tour starts in the mid-October and besides designing the new tourposters and shirtdesigns I can also continue working on few tattoos.
Here’s the today’s catch. Continued on the snake – added some colours. Needs more colouring and also some detailing and then it’s done.

 

 

Also, here’s a sneak peek of the Tour de Balkan 2011 tourposter. I will finish it within the next few days.

 

Mermaid – check. Murder – check.

Been really busy making a lot of designs for customers. You’ll be seeing those on the skin quite soon. Some of them at least.
Anyway, here’s few updates from some of meanwhile tattoowork as well:

first of all, continued with the mermaids. Later on I intend to smoothen the skin coloured “lines” tho. Too “sharp” at the moment.

Secondly, here’s just a lovely small tree with strong roots. For having the stronger roots.

And started a snake  with legendary Shure mic. This customer is a singer in a band and also a morning show host in one of the radio station  here. Snake, as a strong symbol, singing into the mic and as the cord coming out from mic going back to the snake, then all he sings/says/does goes right back at it. Nice idea.

Here’s how we started with it:

And this is what I designed in the first place. On the skin there’s gonna be more action going on with the background.

And finally, a tune to go with the Murmaiding:

Jänks ja plika / Chic and a bunny

Mõlemad sama kandja jagu.
Jänest värskendasin niisama, oli enne natuke räbalavõitu.
Ja see tsikk ussiga – viimase aja üks lemmikuid. Poolik veel. Kuigi samas ega väga palju seal teha enam polegi – teha veel jooned ja värvitud pind üle, lisada valget ja peakski olema. Pildile sobisid peened jooned väga hästi, ei olnud isugi hakata näiteks äärejooni paksemaks tegema vms. Ussi saba vehib peaaegu ümber käe.
Nõel: 3round liner ja 11round liner

Both are owned by onw person.
Bunny got only freshening, was a little worn before.
And the chis with the snake – I must say that it’s one of my favourites lately. Undone. Although, there’s not much to do – redo outlines and colouring, add some white and finished. To this tat2 the thin lines were perfect, I did’nt even thought about making the outlines bolder or something like that. Snakes tale is almost around the arm.
