tattoos and stuff

ive had a good couple of weeks. ive done some nice work, most of it is still in progress. ive been to see the prodigy which was amazing as usual and as a special treat i think i saw the worst dancing ever from the guy in front of me. i have done a couple more drawings for my sketch book which is coming along well. i also finished my collaboration drawing i started in helsinki and sent it to jo harrison to do her bit. i cant wait to see it finished.

in the last week i have built my first tattoo machine and today i did my first tattoo with it, a portrait of a child. it was very good to use and hopefuly i will be making more soon, im currently having some frames cast, very exciting stuff!

its been all work and no play for the last week. i had hayley and jay, 2 up and coming tattooists come to my studio on friday and saturday to learn some techniques. they watched carefuly while i worked hard and tried my hardest to teach them anything worthwhile. we had a good time and it was fun being a teacher for a bit. i did a nice portrait for them to watch on friday and a camper van on saturday!

on monday i did my first ever face tattoo. it was only small but still very stressful to do. people have differing views on this kind of tattoo but emma will definitely wear it with style.

i have been working very hard in my evenings and spare time to put a sketch book together. i still have a way to go but i have been very productive. here is a sneak preview of a couple of pieces that will be in the book. i will wait to post any more until its finished .
