Liverbirds and Traditional Swallows

I was lucky enough to have spent the better part of a week at Forever True Tattoo in Liverpool working alongside the inspirational and perfectly gentlemanly Richie Clarke, not forgetting the diamond geezer known as Paul on the front desk. The studio is a great place with the walls covered in great Traditional Western Style flash – much of it painted by Richie himself which gives the place a really classic feel. Both of the guys here went out of their way to be helpful and make a true welcome to their studio.

While I was there I got to do a few very fun pieces on some lovely clients all of whom I’d like to thank for coming along and getting tattooed. Here are a few of the pieces I did, some of which are Traditional Western Style which was great fun to do and much less strain on my eyes for sure! Oh yes – I also tattooed Richie’s palm which was an honour and may I say a pleasure? Ha ha…..

Melbourne Delight

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 РI  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.
