This is one of yesterday's pieces @seattletattooexpo it is half finished. We will add a burst of color behind everything. Picture it glowing in oranges and yellows. I'm really stoked on this one. I might incorporate this technique in some new work. #gothictattoo#gothicchurch#gothicarchitecture
WIP. And shots of what has become a daily driver in my set up @dankubin s Swinger machine. I use it for fine line/stippling/mags 7-25!! And recently started running carts through it. This thing will start a Cheyenne cart at 4-4.5 vlts without a jumpstart!!! His new model the Swingliner is even stronger yet smooth. Best machines all around. And I use only @northwestpigments for my white or opaque grays. Both products are made by tattooers that I know personally and stand 100% behind the products they make by HAND! They are both husbands and fathers craftsmen and STILL tattoo. They don't just push out a product and forget what it's like to tattoo 8-12 hours a day. I believe this is a very integral part of why they make superior tattoo equipment. Thanks Dan and Thanks Alfredo of @northwestpigments and @ancientirons !!
After Zhoumings demo we had a chance to do our own extremely fast sketch in his style. I ended up with a challenging pose and the woman next to me dropping her easel and wasting about 20 min of my work time standing in front of me fixing her mess. So this is about an 1hour and 45 mins of high speed crash course painting:) it was stressful. But I'm starting to like it for how little time I spent on it !
