Most of the work is done by my cousin Scott Carlin, Brian Ulrich & Terry Manning. I have a ton more & I’ll ask the wife to take some pics. I’m 90% done on a full bio-mechanical color bombed sleeve on my left arm. I still have plenty of room left on the legs, but that’s planned out too. I also have to finish some work on my torso, it’ll never be done:(
Looks good man. I’m liking the lion.
Thanks, the pic was taken on the last sitting & was still a little pink in one area.
Why won’t you get your torso finished? I really like all the tattoos apart from your blue hand. Not a fan of flame tattoos.
I wrestle/do martial arts so I’m always planning sittings around when I take a break from training thus the delay. The flame hand piece is actually a cover up, actually both are so I was limited to my choices. I had to have the blue one done twice to get it to cover. My hand blew up like a boxing glove. You can see in the pic it’s still oozing a day later:D I gotta admit it covered the old piece well(big skull)
Ahhhh, ohk, makes sense. What are your plans for your legs?
Dammmnnn, that back piece is fucking great. the softness of the figures and rendering is really well done. and finish that Grim Reaper i need to see that done dude it looks sick so far
amazing work on the back piece
Not sure yet, I have a few pieces their already, but I have a fair amount of room left. I’m thinking something along the lines of a traditional japanese style piece since I don’t really have any yet.
My wife just got a 3/4 sleeve done in that’s all flowers and animals in a asian style & I just love that look. It seems timeless.
Don’t like Japanese stuff, its tacky and overdone.
Well, it’ll be awhile before I get to my legs so I’m sure I’ll change my mind:D I’m currently working on a full color bio-mechanical sleeve that is 90% done so I’ll get some pics up of that soon. It’s turning out great.
Thanks for the comments on the back piece everyone. My cousin did it free hand probably 6+ years ago & he wants to go in and re-shade the entire thing again & probably extend it onto my butt which I won’t be looking forward to:( He’s gotten so much better as a artist each year.
I love bio-mech. Its awesome, I’m planning on getting some on my leg.
Yes sir, it’s a great look. My left arm was my mistake arm. I got a bunch of small tattoos there while I was in the navy etc… The same guy who did the blue cross cover up on my hand is doing it. His colors are like neon. It’s all dark & green at the bottom and goes into purples & blues at the top & he interwove skulls into it. I get a ton of compliments on it, because how colorful it is compared with my black/grey right sleeve.
The bio-mech covered up all the old ink 100% so now it looks like a orignal sleeve instead of some collage. I’ll get some pics of it soon. I bough Atchisons book for the idea on what style bio I wanted.
