“Ta-Ta” twisted way like Hannibal Lecter says.
Sat down with my machines and did some trimming.
Can’t believe how fast time goes and you notice it’s way over midnight, all of tattoo guns are in small pieces at your table..
Well I can’t be the only one who loves to mix and tune those beautiful tools, or am I..?
– Globe flower coverup –
“I want Globe flower” for hiding this old spider-tattoo. That’s what she said…
Time for research, in to the field were I could find these beautiful flowers. Shitloads of pictures were taken in every shape and angles…
back to the studio table.
This spectacular yellow flower was a mouthful because, hiding black tattoo with yellow flower was not quite simple as it sounds..
– Stencil –
Picture had to be so big, and the spider was gone. Easy to apply because shoulder blade is so nice area to do my magic..
– Making of –
7Round liner 14round liner and 13MG Shader was used in this piece..
Tried to make outlines bit more soft and left some spots “open” …
Bit “oldie” -style but not too much, flower looks right and colors match, black/grey areas are for hiding the old tattoo…
Huge area to color but she took it well, nice job!
– What I learned..? –
First of all, the biggest mistake were leaving those outlines open.
After making outlines I realized that it won’t work and I had to close ’em with my shader..
My mentor also told that biggest faulse was those lines and that style fits better to black/grey tattoos… Can’t argue, I’m wiser now.
Next time when I’m making work like this I’m going to stick up in strong outlines…
Maybe for future I would use way more different kind picture, more leafs and I would stamp those leafs straight to the top of spider..
Doing so, spider would be covered for less work and flower would have more brightness.
I did tune up my machines for this session and one of my liner machines didn’t work like I wanted. The tube was not giving Ink and needle felt just wrong.. I’m twisting angle to my needles usually before using but angle was like others, probably armature bar problem what must be investigated…
Looks like every session teaches me so many things… I used Intenze colors for this piece and I’m thrilled to test something new next time.
That’s the end for this one, to the next step and next session… Oh and that featured picture is my new hand tattoo made by my awesome and talented mentor.
To the next time bye!
