Lots of projects in the works! Some large long-term projects, some complete, some big or some small, I love them all.

chest eagle tattoo in progress by Tanya Magdalenachest eagle tattoo in progress
Large, multiple session tattoos, take endurance and commitment of, time, pain, and finances. Kudos to my tough client on his second session! Chest tattoos hurt a lot! One more to go…

ship tattoo in progress by Tanya Magdalena
ship with moon tattoo in progress
large, highly technical pieces are challenging and fun. they take hours to draw, and hours to install. The actual tattoo/needle time is just the tip of the iceberg, compared to the hours of consults, meetings, research, composition, fitting, line art creation, and finally installation. for every hour of needle time, there is about 2 hours behind it.

– the kitty memorial is a companion piece to join and tie in the two half sleeve tattoos we just finished. more will be added. next session :-)
– the butterfly tattoo is a specific request to be made out of her grandson’s baby foot prints.

progress on and epic full sleeve, started about 2 years ago. it gets worked on about every 2 months or so, in sections. This session took lots of endurance, being on the inner arm and up near the armpit.

toe cover-up tattoo by tanya magdalena
flower tattoo cover-up on big toe
we covered up an old frog tattoo. a perfect example of too much detail, in too small a space, over too much time, on a high exposure and articulated area. glad I could help you :-)
