Rose Rose by theirison Rose Rose by theirison
I tattooed this on my buddies leg yesterday!, it's actually pretty freakn' big, I was sweating bullets the whole time, haha.

I think we'll have one more sitting and I'll post pics after it's done!
Follow me on instagram for more progress pics.
I'm pretty much gonna document my tattoo learning experience on instagram. (and holy shit tattooing is hard, much respect for those crazy cats crushing it!)

I really really wanna get this tattooed, do I have your permission? I want to get it done by you personally, but I don't have money to travel to Brooklyn! ):

I appreciate the compliment!

This was a custom deign that I've tattooed on a client already.
So it's out of commission as far as future tattooing

My list of things to save money for includes a trip to get tattooed by you. It's the best and strangest thing on that list. I can't wait to see more of your progress!

I like the combo of tradition tattoo elements together into, I dunno, a snake bouquet with a face in? Your designs are always lovely, shapely solutions.

So ever since you announced you started tattooing I have decided to save my skin just for your hands. You are the only modern artist whose work I enjoy, which makes you my favourite. I show your work to pretty well all of my friends, when conversation arises, and personally hold you up to my favourite artists such as Klimt, Vettriano, J.C Leyendecker, Mackmurdo, and of course the all too famed Mucha. One day when I save up the cash I plan to commission you to design and tattoo me. One day. The wait is killing me though, I will not lie. I want nothing more than some ink on my skin!

Please, post some of you tattooing progress on here or your Facebook page so I can start to sink my teeth into your inked work, since my teeth are already in all your others.

It's a beautiful design man, looking forward to seeing how you do with the transition to skin. I had a similar thing sketched out when working on my last sketchbook but couldn't get the snake right. :ahoy:

<3 I love your stuff on there! Thanks for the follow haha.
There really is so much to think about, everything from the depth, the line work, the shading, and then the artistic aspect of it as well like light source and form and contrast. A bit mind boggling, but enjoyable once of you have the hang of it! Plus, I feel like I can blend better on skin than anything else haha.

Yeah Im still super new at it all so nothing is coming easy yet. I really focusing on my lone work. I haven't done much shading on skin yet. That will be the next step! (very soon)

Well I wish you the best of luck! Lines are the most important part of the tattoo in most cases just make them clean and mean! (;
