Small and pretty, like me..!

Time has gone by and I can almost taste the end of summer. I’ve been doing many small tats lately and have to say, it’s challenging every time. 

Names and birthstones

This dame got one spectacular idea: “Names and birthstones” Hell, I havent even heard about birthstones before and had to do some epic investigation stuff before could start even sketching…


Stencil were easy to apply because the place was flat, no need for silkpaper. 

“Stones” was only few straight lines and I made ’em with my shader.

Making of…

I was using 7Round liner and 9MgShader. Colors had to mix like she wanted.

What I learned…?

First of all, stencil for pictures like this should always make with “sharpies” and freehand style. 

Decorating lines could also be much bigger giving the smoothness for the whole pic.

Perhaps next time I would even use a smaller needle for some special turns, 3Round liner could be nice, and tattoo would have more deep illusion.

Don’t forget to do “bloodline” like my mentor always says!

Big feather

She wanted a blue feather to the hand. Really specific about what kind and what color. 


Had to use silkpaper so I could turn this right way from inside out. 

Normal paper won’t work and stencil goes blurry easily, trust me..

Making of…

Stencil placed and ready to go. 7Round liner, 13Mg shader and 9Flat shader for tight spots. This time I made whole picture “bloodline” and blacks using (10% Black 90%H2O) mix.

It was really much more easier to start adding blacks and contrast when bloodline were down under.

Colors that I used were from Intenze this time. Outline black, peach, green and different tones of blue. Mixed up all colors with water and white.

Of course all the trimming and details I made with white using 7Round shader.

What I learned…?

The greatness of the bloodline! 

No need to say how important it is to do shades and lines with enough light mixture and add the darker shades after.

Sure I knew this earlier but now I’m starting to realize what my teacher/mentor has always meant…


Enough for this time, thanks for reading…

Sincerely yours: Jay

Ink life! Can’t get better…

Hooya whores and hounds..!

Time has gone by and I’ve been at studio most of my time.. [INK LIFE] for me it means doing and takin tats, hell that’s pretty much all I do…

D.O.N & Daisies… Pretty idea eh?

Brought this one to the table when she told the meaning of the word “DON” and that she loved Daisies… That’s where this idea got wings.

She absolutely loved it and so did I. Stencil although didn’t went like I was planning but no matter, sharpie did the rest.

Making of…

7Round liner & 7Mg shader was all needed in this one. Colors of course simple and the whole pic simple as possible…

Hypnotic “oldie” snake..

This epic piece was for my trusted mechanic who brought me an idea of the oldie cobra. After tons of changes, I’ve got the illusion in this snake eyes that if you stare it you’ve got your eyes crossing really fast. So much fun doing this, enjoyed every minute of it..

Making of…

7Round liner, 9Flat shader, 14Round liner, and 7Flat shader were used in this one and colors are from very special “Oldie-color” set.

Brazilian snowman in Arctic Circle..?

Well this is story to tell… Kiddo’s Capoeira instructor/professor wanted to have an angry snowmen on his arm with the Finland & Brazilian twist. That’s what he said, and got. Idea went for the sideways multiple times but got it together in time. Wonderful piece still missing blacks but epic already, finish this soon.

Making of…

7Round liner, 9Round shader, 13Mg shader were used when I made this beauty. Pain was bit too much for finishing this but hey, there is always next time…

Skull and flames coverup…

Coverup tattoo is always tricky thing to do but this spectacular sharpie piece was totally worth it. So much lines and flames so I could hide the 90’s tribal from the beginning of this skull and I nailed it good time.

Making of….
Few hours of Sharpie action first and then we are ready to start. 7round liner and 13Mg shader were only thing that I needed in this one.

Tattoo life…?

Of course you have to chill and relax sometimes… 

Like my bro has teach me… Simple Man from YouTube, smoke Cuban and drink Scotch.

We are all good now right, C-Ya people…! (Fades away with Lynyrd Skynyrd)…

A.K.A “StickerPorn”

God damn! They say that when you’re kid everything circles around stickers. Well it’s true, perhaps even hidden truth.

When you’ll be brave enough in MD’s office or dentist you’ve get sticker to take home. Sometimes parents buy small sheets for kiddos and they even don’t realize that this will be part of us whole of our lives.

Dunno, maybe I’m only weird “adult” that likes stickers and tuning stuff with ’em.. When you did use stickers last time? I’m ordering huge mix/lot from Malysia, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. Why from Asian countries? Simple answer: “IT’S CHEAP” well yeah, and stickers are still big thing back there..

MacBook cover sticker tuning…

Everything must be full of sticker so it feels cosy and like home. Yeah, that’s my mental problem but hey, we all have problems.

Installing stickers, so called “StickerPorn” is really REALLY therapeutic thing to do, I highly recommend it to every one.

Kiddo started skateboarding and kick boarding this summer and of course first thing we did were sticker tuning to both equipments.. Like I tend to say: “You Can’t do the backflip, if your Skate don’t have any stickers..”

Stickers can be used literally everything, helmets, car bumpers, boards, laptops, phones… Fuck even whole walls if you have enough passion. Although I’m pretty sure that this whole thing has started from luggage tuning but who knew…

My skateboard helmet, my passion…

I was buying new helmet for this summer and right after shopping I had to drive home SO FAST… Stickers were waiting this new helmet and I couldn’t wait to get ’em on..


Stickers are cheap and can be used so many ways. Older the sticker, more nostalgic look right? Hype around this is quite minimal but we underground people love shit like it!

“If there is free space, you can shove sticker on it..!”

Drawing “Oldies…”

Yeah, my biggest favorit thing these day is drawing Old school sketches. Don’t know where the main idea came from but I just realize my hidden talent with these. I’ve been always drawing caricature pictures of people and this “oldie” style is quite like it. 

This eagle is different than the original but it didn’t change too much, deep colors and lots of attitude.. Stencil making was simple, I just marked the outlines and everything else were colored.. Needles were 14round liner and 7flat shader. Oh, yeah and 7round liner I did use on the head area… Turned out radical eh?


Muttley the dog
from wacky racers.. Hah, this was so much fun to do. Only thing I remembered about that cartoon was the laugh of Muttley. If I’m not wrong he was good dog even that he was working for that evil dude.. To the picture yeah, stencil work was tricky and had to use my sharpest pencil. Crazy twist of this sketch was Catalonia’s flag that I hide to the Muttley’s “clothes. Needles I used: 9round shader, 7round liner, 13magnum shader. 

Next one was starter plug for guy who is… Surprise! a mechanic. Fun idea, one plug for every kiddo. Stencil making was fast, only few outlines and we’re ready to go. Needles for this session choosed to be 14round liner, 9flat shader, and 13 magnum shader…


Coat of arms
. This epic dude has ordered this for his family…family coat of arms you could say. Of course fanatic football fans will love this MUFC tribute right..?

To the next time, thanks for reading…

Hashtag: “Amdrawing”

Hah hah haa…

Me doing tattoos  and also drawing..(Big surprise) Many of my sketches will be tatted but mostly ’em just go to the “drawbox” away from nosy people…

 Old school Coat Of Arms

This was for one dude who wanted to change his family coat of arms to tattoo. Not quite simple thing to do but im quite happy with the results… STRONG Outlines and simple colors, original was stuffed with details and it was hard job to make it look like old school picture..


Valentines day maddness!

Sure, this is the newest because i’m sitting in a bus right now and it came out. First it was going to be deer, it turned to Devil and woman… Who knows anymore! “Romance isn’t dead” Yeah, all you nerds out there know that it is Trevor’s mission in GTA5.. Drop dead Rockstar industry!



Lion and Skulls ALL BLACK!

Umm… I know, Rugby team of New Zeland is called all blacks, this sketch has nothing to do with it. Black lion for someone, this could be my new “training pic” one victim has already raised her hand and will be happy to take this. Gunna train whole new style to me. This is done like printer machine does from down to up and left to right without any outlines. Yeah, you heard me… I will be using only shaders and training my technique with this… Maybe it will be epic!


Flower Power bitches!!!!

Oh my god, like my daughter likes to say. Wooden coloring and few sharpies. This was meant to be for someone but it ended into the “Drawbox” watercolor stuff eh..? Perhaps but Nooo (says Consuela from Family Guy)… Tried to create Newschool/Oldschool crossing picture with that water color style, too much I say. Victim got different kinda rose and this ended to the PIT.. (Not Brad tho) No homo. Fun thing to draw anyway..



Weird small thing, sometimes it’s on and sometimes off. Have you ever thought about inspiration? If you are those ppl who says: “I Can’t draw shit” I have a newsflash. There is also different inspiration in the universe, have you ever wondered why is it that today was the day when I cleaned that closet from the bedroom? Same fucking closet you haven’t touched in years… Nor suddenly in Saturday morning you have that feeling: “I must clean my car..” Inspiration is always around us.. Artist like me or novelist has it… But also that soccer mom from Leeds.

That’s all for now, going to keep traveling and thinking this shit that keeps me awake at night.. 


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..!


Here we go again people…!

Buddy showed up to my crip and told me he’s pissed of with this tribal he had back in the 90’s Ready “flash-pic” and were down for that…


This time I tried new “silk-paper” which was SOOO good to use in this kind tricky area. Easy startup because picture was ready, only thing was found the right size. Needles for this session were: 7round liner, 7flat shader and ink was Tribal outlining Ink and tribal black ink for coloring.

Stencil done and started to work. Shading and bloodline first and last step was outlines and whites.

After few hours to work tattoo is ready.. Didn’t do much to that old tribal because it was in great position, next time perhaps something small, shades stuff etc..

I’m happy with the result… Keep you posted soon C-ya!
