It has been a very interesting week here in Birmingham, luckily Modern Body Art survived the riots intact. It didn’t affect us at all really, we stayed open just the same hours and got on with tattooing. I have plenty of opinions of what went on but I am sure nobody comes here for my political rhetoric.
I worked Tattoo Jam and probably enjoyed it and found it more inspiring than I thought I would. I am not planning any conventions next year but maybe the year after I will do some again.
I really enjoyed doing this piece on my friend, she was a trooper at the end too, it had started to get really sore;
This piece is a little different to what I normally do, although I did try to make it slightly gloomy, not all cute and girly;
Here is a healed photo of another lasered cover up;
Here is an old tattoo, I did that I never got a photo of. I am now working on a new piece on the same customer so I grabbed this shot;
I definitely don’t do enough bat tattoos. Yesterday I added these little guys to the baku sleeve I previously posted and really enjoyed it. These are covering something that had been lasered once, you can see little bits still and I will be putting colour into the bats at some point which should cover it completely;
I finished this;
I finished this, although it is part of an ongoing sleeve which is in the early stages but should be pretty cool when it’s done;
Started this. A cover up on some lasered old tattoos. I think it had a few sessions so now it is gonna cover pretty easily;
This is part of an ongoing sleeve and the koi has had all the black and grey put in now so I will probably just put a relatively flat colour over the top of all of it. I might still blend a little bit towards the edges;
