Truth time: These tattoos were not easy ones. They’re a great idea — animals within animals (but not in a creepy everything-devouring-everything sort of way). But there is a LOT of time-consuming detail within each one. Actually, there was initially supposed to be three outlines done in this sitting, but time unfortunately ran out, so a flounder will be placed on the inner bicep when the client comes in for her next session.
And guess what else? The turtle is actually a coverup. The lines alone are a good start, so the tattoo below should be completely hidden once the color is put in! More pics will be on the way as these pieces progress.
If you know who Lord Egan is, then the title of this post might confuse you a bit. It took us a while to decide if these two tattoos should even be in the same post together. Something about it seems wrong.
Still confused? We recommend taking a quick trip to Google and typing in Lord Egan. But this picture is also a good summary. He came into our shop recently and PJ was more than happy to fulfill his tattoo wishes. But really, who could say no?
On the opposite end of the darkness spectrum, Molly did this adorable owl yesterday. We don’t think Lord Egan would trade in his raven for it anytime soon, but it’s still pretty great in a non-Satanic way.
form of skin art. The most popular image tends to be a shamrock, or a clover. My client Steve choose to support his roots with another time-honored symbol of the Irish; the harp. Unless you are familiar with the Guinness draft logo, or the Irish in general it may come as a surprise that the image of the harp is the symbol of the Emerald Island. He brought in a photo of a real harp he printed off the internet, but requested I draw it up in a more traditional style.
