So the reason there has been so little activity from me for the last couple of months is because I have been travelling throughout Asia which has been fantastic. I have seen so much and my reference folders are literally bursting with new pictures, from patterns to statues, paintings and architecture. I have been snapping away on my faithful little camera.I’m really fired up and full of ideas I’d like to use when I return to tattooing in the next few weeks. I thought it might be nice to share at least a few pieces with you all so here are some patterns, mainly floor and ceiling tiles for you to enjoy – I hope you do.
Tacky title but I really can’t think of anything else to write……. Oh well. I’ve had the opportunity to do some fun work here in Melbourne and have actually photographed some.
First up is Sri Ganesh on Sandy – the photo’s didn’t come out so well but I liked this shot and it does show the detail so I thought I’d include it in this post.
Chris came in and had a bug mandal and bee done – I loved doing this and hope he is happy with the result.
A lucky chance brought in this piece as Leonie was ill therefore I stepped in and redrew a sketch brought in by the customer.
Another piece of luck as Richie came in off the cuff at Tattoo Magic and I had him come in twice and we did these pieces – in the bottom photo the tattoo is a week old and almost all healed up.
Kapitan Voodoo aka Fat Knee Nik had this colour mandala jabbed on to his, later swollen, knee. I’ll get a healed shot of this soon with any luck as I’m going to be doing the other knee.
Amy had an islamic inspired mandala on her feet – she changed her mind halfway through and went without colour – no problem.
Kayci had a colourful seahorse with mandala done – it almost matched her hair at the time (not shown but believe me)…..
Sam had his first tattoo – ‘Eyes’ he said…..
Miss Cutie-Kills had a fun traditional mermaid doing. Nice and bright…..
Paul wanted a simple origami swan – nice one mate.
