No pain no gain
Freehand raven. This is a big dude with a lot of canvas. Couldn’t complete this in one shot but I am looking forward to the final session.
A double sleeve project in progress. Two old sleeves have been lasered off. We have outlined two new sleeves to cover remaining scars. I drew them on with marker to make sure we had a good fit and were able to cover little bits of the old tattoos that were still visible.
Paul is a local tattoo artist who lazered both of his sleeves off and is getting two new sleeves from me simultaneously. This is the beginning of a peacock sleeve on his left arm. I had to draw this on his arm to work around some of the remnants of his laser work. Laser tattoo removal is so much more painful than tattooing. There is a lot of pain and dedication involved with removing two sleeves. With so much already invested in removal, it is an honor to be trusted with the design and application of these new tattoos.
