The line work on the inner arm has since been touched up and a few more tattoos have been added to that client. I'm excited to see him finding the love for something I hold so dear.
The chess piece was on a dude who already has nice collection going. I know him from high school and we've both changed immensely since then. He taught me the meaning of "Chopped and Screwed." If you don't know, look it up.
I tattooed my bro's own design of that "Bahala Na" on his inner wrist. I consider it a honor to be on that sacred spot. It's a daily reminder. I happen to have a few of my own around that area. He brought this tattoo home to the Philippines and I hope it's serving its purpose.
The Wheedle on the Needle. So much has happened since putting this tattoo on and it touches my heart to see it. The back of the arm might not be as much of a sacred spot, but 4th and Michigan for sure was. Love you Ninong!
And finally, this in-progress full sleeve tiger and dragon. This one has been "dragon" (draggin') a bit, so I'm glad to work on it. Sometimes it's difficult to find time that works with clients, but it's rewarding when it finally happens. I'm glad to finally put some color into that tiger! Hopefully we can find another session to clean it up a bit.
This post also reminds me to bring my black background with me when I travel. It really makes the pictures look clean and professional.
Enough sharing my secrets to you readers. Go figure it all out on your own!
