rework of an old tattoo I did almost 9 years ago. at the time he insisted, despite my advice, that it not have outlines and be super detailed. he is a sun-lover and neglected sunscreen. outlines help. came back to me to have me rework it, and said “i should have listened to you ;-)”
here we are matching/continuing and old engine/skin-tear style tattoo originally done by Mary-Jane Haake, to make a 3/4 sleeve, using the bottom end of a triumph 650 motorcycle engine. She sent him to me to have me do the new work. Thanks MJ!
my client drove down from north of Vancouver BC to have me do her first tattoo to cover some scars on her back. Thank you for the journey and the trust. its always a great compliment when people travel to see me.
My Client brought me the art and idea. it is homage to the band Pantera. while this is something I normally choose not to do, (bands, lovers names) I gave him all the cautionary tales, and he still wanted to proceed. makes a statement!
