i love little people...glad there are so many reality shows out there about them, so imagine my excitement when a client comes in and asks for a leprechaun on his arm. it gave me an instant chubby, which made the cosultation a little awkward, but we worked through it.
so you've seen the sketch and now the tattoo after 7 hours. still needs a couple hours, but it's a good start. used a 7 round liner in soba pilot liner machine, 9 mag shader in my swashdrive, intenze inks. i normally pour out a whole bunch of different inks, but on this one i wanted to do something different so i limited myself to cyan, magenta, yellow, black, and white (electric pick does this and his work looks amazing so i figured it wouldn't hurt).
let me know what you think...of the work, not me...i know i'm despicable.
ahhhhh! so nice to get back to doing something that is familiar. i have been doing so many black and grey realism pieces lately that i was beginning to miss doing whacked out interpretation of what is around us...so here is a little glimpse into my mind...enjoy.
this piece is on ms. krystn victoria our shop manager. she kinda has a boner for marilyn manson so i filled in a spot between 2 existing marilyn tattoos. my drawing. lined with my soba pilot liner and a tight seven. colored with 9 mag in my gen 6 swashdrive (dope). all intenze inks...sidenote: i use to use eternal and fusion which are really good inks, my only complaint is that it doesn't wipe away easy and because of that i feel it slows me down.
busy and fun week coming up. lots of cool tattoos will be started, some finished (hopefully), and some pretty rad drawings. stay tuned and classy.
i don't get asked to do these much, but do have fun when i get the opportunity.
most of this tattoo was done with an 11 mag bugpin in my fancy schmancy gen 6 swashdrive rotary tattoo machine and the little bit of lining was done with a soba pilot liner with the voltage turned down pretty low. i did have a regular 7 mag setup in my next generation machine, but didn't really use it. silverback greywash set including their black, which i believe they call "11"...cannot say enough good things about this ink.
kept the stencil pretty simple because i found that they were getting way to busy and interfering with my tattooing. put on with stencil stuff because its the shit.
