Lucky birds

Continued with this traditional piece. Today I added a pair of birds with the banner. But, it’s still a work in progress – there’s going to be a lot more work with this one, including wrenches & turbos and more background etc.

Traditional & watercolour day

With this customer we have a long road behind us, started with his first tattoos in 2002, if I remember correctly. Last year we did the two girls on his leg, the devilish one and the innocent one, both with nude boobs.
This time we started to work on his upper arm & shoulder, to continue the big rose piece he already has in the middle of the arm. Theme is old school and since he’s a gearhead, then we’re adding some automotive stuff there, the piston for example. More goodies to come tho.
And I also wanted to make it a bit different, by adding the watercolourish background. So, here you go, this is how far we got today:

anchor

and the piston piece

and a lil’ bit of the background

Rohkem sugar skull’e! Klient joonistas ise algsed kavandid valmis, millele lisasin natuke oma nägemust. Arutasime hiljem veel detailid läbi ja läks andmiseks! Tuleb veel ühe korra üle teha ning mõlemale lisada alla lilli. Varsti näete.
Nõel: 7round liner
Tint: I True Black, I Dark Purple, I Aquamarine, I Co-Co, I Lemon Yellow, I Bright Red, A Oriental Orange, A Atlantic Blue, A Sky Blue

More sugar skulls! Client drew the first sketches and I added a bit of my vison to ’em. Later on we discussed about the details and then slinged the ink. Gotta do it one more time, as always plus add the flowers to both of them. You’ll see.
Needle: 7round liner

Sooviti rinnale traditional tiibadega mexican sugar skulli, mille alaosast kasvaks välja puu, mis läheb ca nabani ning taustaks oleks taevas ja välgunooled. Joonistasin kavandiks poole ja hakkasime tegema. Vabakäega jälle pliiatsi abil jooned nahale ette ning masin kätte ja kütma! Esimese korraga tegime vaid skulli ja krooni. Krooni tuleb muidugi veel värvida ja kõigest muust ka veel korra üle käia. Väga mõnus töö on.
Tegin kõigepealt mustaga skulli ja krooni põhijooned, siis rohelisega lehed, lillaga vidinad skulli näkku ja nende otstesse ning krooni kividesse punast (vahepeal tegin käbe veel lillaga kroonil lilla osa piirjoone ära) ja siis helesinisega veel kive. Vahetasin nõela ja varjutasin kroonis lillad osad ning seejärel helesinisega skulli näo.
Jooned tegin taas 7se joonenõelaga ning varjutasin 15se Magnumiga.
Kasutatud värvid: I True Black, I Aquamarine, A Deep Violet, A true Green, A Deep Violet, A Fire Red.

Client wanted a traditional style mexican sugar skull with wings and crown on it’s head and sky with lightning as background. And a tree under a skull. After showing the half sketch we sat down and I drew the freehand outlines with pencil. I really enjoyed tattooing it. But of course. as always – there’s a lot more work to do.
First I did the outlines with black, then the green leaves, violet stuff onto skull’s face and filled the violet tips and some stones with red. Then violet outlines in the crown and then filled some more stones with light blue. Changed the needle and shaded violet in crown and light blue for the face.
Needles: 7liner & 15Magnum.
Inks: I True Black, I Aquamarine, A Deep Violet, A true Green, A Deep Violet, A Fire Red.

Tegin selle omale vasakule säärele, pooleldi põlvele. Vahepeal oli üsna keeruline teha, kuna üsna ebamugava asendi tõttu läksid piirjooned silme ees kaheks ja pidin umbkaudu otsustama, et kumb õige on. Lillaga tegin kõik jooned ja enamuse värvimisest/varjutamisest – kasutasin seega lillat nagu musta tavaliselt. Rohelisega nägu ja pruunikat natuke siia-sinna maitseks juurde.
Kasutatud värvid: Dark Purple,  Lime Green, Co-Co.

I did this on my left leg, it’s located halfly on the knee. Because of the complicated position (keep in mind that I did this myself on my own leg) the outlines went to two separate lines before my eyes, so I had to choose, which is the right one. Did the outlines and most of the shading/coloring with purple (used it as black, so to speak). Green for the face and some light brown here’n’there.
Inks used: Dark Purple, Lime Green, Co-Co.
