Spooked, Hearts, Ribs and Birds

2015-04-08 16.53.51w

Just some sketches while trying to draw something out of my mind. It’s not ready yet apparently. We have a spooked eyeball, cute hearts (make a cute brooch, or a tattoo), a roughly drawn ribcage missing a few ribs, and a sparrow playing what looks like basketball.

Flashback Saturday – Tattoo Design

I meant to post this last night but Eevee had other plans (she decided to sleep on my computer).

This is roughly 5 years old, I found it again while digging through my bookcase. And I’m showing it to you all despite it making me cringe inside. I did this for myself originally, but wasn’t happy with it, so it was forgotten, buried, then dug up again. The words are lyrics from Dir en Grey’s “Child Prey” song, a band I was obsessed with when I was younger (go ahead, laugh it up).

If I were to ever get a thigh piece done (which I would like to) I’d have to start from scratch, I like the positioning, the flowers, but I’d replace the dagger with a bone, most likely a thigh bone.

FYI, if you’d like to get this inked onto you, please contact me for permission to use it first.

So everything with skulls, bones, and flowers like this I think I’m simply going to name with human names.
Just a human skull, with some greenery and hibiscus and plumeria flowers.

I suppose this would translate well as a tattoo design.

Tattoo for “Z”

“Z” was a young woman who worked with us for a short time, and had asked me
to design a ‘hardcore/heavy metal” pin-up girl tattoo for her.

This was done about 3 years ago. “Z” asked that the pinup be wearing latex, a collar and buckle-covered boots.

Peony

So this piece I had originally done for myself at some point. This was done ages ago, I think back in 2008, and as I look at it now I realize it has no real appeal to me to actually put it permanently on my flesh. So, in that regard, I shall show it to you all.

If you get this done on you, firstly, please ask me if I’m down with you using it, and secondly SHOW ME the end result. I enjoy seeing my art on people. It makes me grin like a dork.

Lily

I’m going to be posting some old stuff for a while, since I have not been actively drawing at all lately.

Here’s a tattoo design I did for a good friend.

She wanted a flower, so we looked at a few different types and she decided on a lily. This is the end result.

I need to learn to not test colours on the good side.
