So in the past month I have finished my first two sleeves ever.
First is Roland’s filigree sleeve that I showed a few posts back. We put the final section in, and added some flat grey pieces plus I reworked an old heraldic lion in the back of his forearm to fit in the sleeve.
Next is the Sailor Jerry sleeve on Cory. He had the “Bad Pussy” and “Crossed the Equator” tattoos already, but for some reason they were almost completely fallen out. I think military training while they were in the early stages of healing may have contributed to it, but I didn’t originally do them, or the nautical star on the inside. We left the star alone, but I completely re-did those other two tattoos, so as far as I’m concerned it’s my sleeve. I tried to keep most of this stuff as close to book versions as I could, though I did adjust some things. The rose and knife is a combo of a rose from one sheet and a knife from another to cover up some “no out line”, faded red kanji. The girl head is my favorite part.
Here’s a painting I did for an auction for a French Bulldog rescue charity event. I based it on my friend and coworker, Zack Spurlock’s dog, Vito. It’s my first time painting something like this, and I’m not sure I did him justice, but I like the painting, and I learned a lot.
Here’s a few recent one shot tattoos.
The rose is on my friend Raleigh whom I have tattooed a ton. The wolf was from yesterday.It’s from the 3rd volume of Sailor Jerry flash, and I had a blast doing it. Thanks for looking, comments are always appreciated.
