Despite our struggles with the onslaught of snow as of recent, Natan has been pulling consistently long days working on some big new pieces he has in progress. Check 'em all out below:
First up is this in-progress shot of a Kali backpiece that Natan has been working on. The latest session on this involved adding in the tibetan flames as a border around the piece and to accent the natural curvature of his client's anatomy. More photos of this one to come as she heals up and makes it back for more work.
Next is the latest progress shot from another long-term project of Natan's. Our buddy Mike has been in and out of the shop every other week or so, plugging away at getting his full back completed. As you can see, they're just about in the home stretch and should have a finished photo up here fairly soon.
On a slightly smaller scale is this St. Michael piece that Natan completed a couple of months ago.
Natan's been getting a fair amount of religious work coming in lately and it's always interesting to see his take on a particular piece. This one below was rendered out with some soft, muted, painterly tones.
Last up is this piece based on the Alex Grey drawing “The Seer”. If you're familiar with the work of Alex Grey (or if you take a cursory glance at some of his pieces online) you know how incredibly detailed and intricate everything by him is, making it all fairly challenging for translating into a tattoo. Natan was able to figure out a system to tackle this complicated one here, grounding it in a strong and bold tradition of tattooing while maintaining all of the nuances which give the original drawing it's power and effect.
Natan is at Witch City Ink (Salem, MA) Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, and Lightwave Tattoos (Saugus, MA) Thursdays and Fridays. Give us a call and book up your time with him today!
