Some Tattoos from this week

I was finally able to finish Kristine’s lower back (not that the delay was on her part… she sits like a champ! I’m just always slower than I would like to be). Most of the photo reference for this piece was taken from photographs that she had taken while diving. I think that makes the whole thing extra cool. Hoping to get some healed photos.

She healed the second section up using tegaderm and had really good results. We put it on again for this last sit and I am interested to talk to her more about how the healing went.

Linda had this tattoo started ten years ago with the butterfly for her birthday and we added the rest of the garden on this year. We had a lot of fun while working on this and I hope that I don’t have to wait ten years to see her again.

I really like doing portraits. They are fun for me to do most of the time. This one was a little more challenging as we didn’t have great reference to work from so it took a little longer – definitely worth it.

I have been making tattoos for Bec for a long time and have enjoyed everyone of them. This time she gave me a few different options of what she would like to work on and asked not to know which one I had picked or what it was going to look like ahead of time. I am very much looking forward to seeing this guy finished.

  1. Tee Jay,
    I can’t thank you enough for the artist work you did on my arm. I absolutely love it! I had a lot of fun and will miss our ‘interesting and funny conversations’ . I promise not to wait another 10 yrs. before you see me again.
    Linda

  2. I should learn to proof read….that’s ‘ artistic ‘ work, not artist work. But you are a true artist!
