This young lady had someone start a watercolor reproduction on her upper chest. I was charged with finishing/fixing what was already there and completing the reproduction. She created the painting herself and I transcribed it to her skin. Thanks guys!
Here is my process for doing a cover-up tattoo. In this case we needed to cover a “tribal” lower back piece. I begin by freehand drawing the design on the skin to ensure proper placement and it allows me to modify the design as needed. Next everything is outlined and prepped for color and shading. A few hours later and no more tribal.
Finished up the Candy Man tattoo today (Actor: Tony Todd). This is about 5″ tall on the ankle. Bottom of the horror portrait leg I have been working on for a while. It’s nice to have another one finished after so long. This piece is below Pinhead (Hellraiser) and Pumpkinhead on the left leg and finishes out the bottom edge. All I had to work from was a screen capture from the movie so we kept this one small enough to not look too blurry. You can barely see in the photo but his coat is turning into a honeycomb pattern. Maybe we’ll add some bees later to fill in some gaps up the leg.
