Making of few tattoos..

So the year has changed, and break for this writing thing is over again..
Lately I’ve been so overwhelmed with my study process that I haven’t wrote anything. (Apologizes for that)

Break from tattooing also has taken few months. Of course something has come to the table, can’t stop doing what you love…

Next piece we’re interesting because many reasons, first of all… AMBIGRAM…! You just have to love those..  These always reminds me about the beauty of the horror movies, writing seems to be something way different purpose.

She had crazy “near death experience” and her life were saved by Her bff.. She wanted the scar and tattoo combination in her stomach, to remind her about that, the rest of her life.. (Scar was already there, only tattoo I made)

Making of:

Beginning and stencil was easy to apply because she had ready pic with her.. She is one of my regulars and so much fun to work with..

7Round liner and 9Round Shader was my choice today. Before starting to do those lines I knew that the hardest part about this was the place.. It’s really complicated place to keep skin tight all the time..

Lines done and only the filling up more to go… In this point AGAIN I realize how to improve my work in near future. This happens so often, but I think it’s good for me. This tattoo could look much softer if I had made from the beginning just using that 9Shader, and for the client it would be easier to handle.. Less time you use to break skin, less time it takes to heal..

Black and white from Intenze I used and those are really smooth mixing inks to use.

It turned out pretty damn fine, so much fun to work small tattoos like this.
This next one were small also, Star Wars HC-fan of course..

Star Wars symbols

This was especially hard piece to do, not because of the symbols but the forces of the nature.. FAKIN HUGE Thunderstorm in the making of outlines, coloring had to do next time.. These were the selected symbols and that red line was freehanded for giving colors.

Making of:

First time I used 7Round liner and second time 14round liner, 9flat shader for coloring parts. Especially hard one to make stencil straight. Definately learned the hard lesson about forces of nature, if the weather gives you chills and keeps cutting lights off, don’t start.

Afterward thinking I would wait for better weather, also I would use liner only in those tight spots. I really have to start using more shaders so my tattoos get more…softer? I mean the influence of the contrast.. 

Both tattoos were so much fun to do.. thanks for reading!

Break off…

So, I’m back from the writing pause.. 

 This coverUp i started with coloring. REALLY Pain in the ass to hide because of those strong Outlines of earlier artist..

Stencil was simple to do, marked all tho tight spots for outline and rest must be colored using that old tat..

7Round liner, 9Round shader, 7Flat shader and 13flatM1 were used to do this Irish stylish oldschool/Newschool tattoo..

 

Here we go!

Perhaps the hardest part was the eye area ‘cos it had to color so strange ways.. Shades and colors was made to top points of early pic..

Outlines and shades had to mark at the same time and colors later..

Coloring were hard thing to do and all those places where earlier pic we’re available to notice, was really a handful. For the first round it became pretty awesome, photo of course don’t look the same but this is how we go… Tattoo is still In progress but I have faith in this one!

This one I started for one guy who has the worlds worst pain limit… Two hours tattooing to this lad is impossible, he’s almost dead after that.. That’s also bit weird, normally ppl takes three to four hours without any problem but this one is something else. Anyhow, guy wants to get tatted and here we are…

Stencil of the Tiger

Simple stencil with outlines, nothing fancy because there is lots of coloring and shading action.

Making of

Truly hard customer like I said, 7Round liner and 7Flat shader are only things needed. I know this mate will give up after few hour, and surprise! That’s exactly what happens. Well even if you won’t stand the pain you have right to get ink like the rest of us… In his case it just takes way more time…

Outline and few shades, yup! He’s done, to the next time. Still this will be very fun thing to do and the area (lower leg) is really good place to keep tight. 

 

Perhaps in the future he will come back so we can finish this piece, but with that pain tolerance it takes two or three times.

He also asked would some kind “pain lotion” help? We’ll probably it would but I ain’t doing tattoos if you are using it… Why you ask. Once I tatted a person who used some kind shit like that and it made the healing process week longer… Don’t know why but I don’t wanna do it anymore. Healing is the key after all right?

To the next session creeps..!

Tattoos, Writing and the Cleansing Power of Pain

Kile the WonderBoy!!

I like tattoos.

Strike that. I love tattoos.

I am pretty sure I first wanted a tattoo when I was eight or nine. I always thought they were the pinnacle of bad-ass. Remember the temporary tattoos that you could get from the quarter prize machines that they have in front of grocery stores? I loved those. I’d plaster myself with those whenever I could get them, always feeling kind of bummed out when they eventually faded, leaving nothing but my pale, scrawny arms behind.

See, I am what you’d call a slight man. Slender, if you’re nasty. I’ve never been very muscular. Sort-of athletic, but not really. Enough to slightly embarass myself, you know? Smart? Please, who do you think you are talking to? I wrote a story about a man having sex with a table. You think any Johnny Dumbass can do that?

Old Man Kile is bitching again. Old Man Kile is bitching…

Never judge a book by its tattoos and piercings

Amanda N. Marino

Tattoos Does the tattoo make the person, or does the person give the tattoo meaning?

It’s time to talk stigmas again! I hope you are as excited as I am. I plan to keep this brief, but I hope you can recognize the importance of what I’m saying regardless. Currently, I lack the funds and the mindset required to get myself a tattoo. Trust me, though, if that changes, it’ll happen. I have been told not to get a tattoo, though, by a variety of people and for a variety of reasons. One of the most common ones, and my personal favorite, is that people will judge me if I have or do not have a tattoo.

This leads me to beg a very important question: Who the hell is anybody to judge me for my tattoo? As a matter of fact, who is anybody to judge anybody for anything?

Now, I’m…
