a sleeve of florals

howdy everyone! we weren't able to take our poor little computer into the dr's this weekend, tom had a side project that he needed my assistance with instead. working on your day off is rubbish! rubbish, i tell you! but hopefully we can get it looked at soon and figure out what the problem is. until now blogging on the ipad isn't so bad.

i wanted to share with you today the sleeve design i have been working on. it is my first piece that the client wanted shading and color. i really love how it came out and really happy with the color and shading. it was great practice too so when i start tattooing and someone wants a tattoo designed by me and shading i know how to shade my own designs. after this i have 3 more tattoo designs to work on. one being my friends first tattoo! i am soo excited for her!!

  1. that looks incredible, and i'm seriously jealous of your rose drawing skills! i think they're the most difficult flowers to draw, but you nailed it!

  5. I really really like it. If I were to wear it, I would go for some orange gradient in there too.

    1. Thanks, i would have loved to have added orange to it but sadly it would not have shown up on her skin, she is very dark so red i know for sure would have come up.

  13. I'm sorry to hear about your computer! Mine died recently... the whole screen just froze and went mental, it was horrible! At the apple store they said it was so old they couldn't do anything, I guess 6 years is a lot for a laptop. But luckily James wanted to buy a gaming pc so I got his mac! Anyway, sorry for going off on my laptop stories, I LOVE this design! It's so cool, it looks modern and retro at the same time!
