Zombies pieces are a favourite of mine.You can get so much character into them with facial expressions and gore when drawing and designing them. I feel free when designing these pieces. 

The photo was taken in different lighting with no flash as opposed to the photo below and I captured a slight angle to give distortion a little to the viewer.
There was no photoshop editing on the actual tattoo photo except for the background.
Bring on the zombie pieces people....

Zombie grrrl

This was completed in one session, around five and a half hours. I noticed the scale of the tattoo was quite large when putting the tattoo stencil on.The Hand in the piece was life size scale and the head similar as well. This guys leg was pretty long too, so scale had to be big as we are covering the whole leg, ankle to knee eventually. The face was modelled by Lucy and I used lighting effects with actual lights when taking ref photos for the piece. I futhur developed the photo in photoshop to get some crazy colors happening. It felt good to knock out a large piece in one sit. Hopefully get some healed shots.

vulturine guineafowl.

First stage of a full sleeve.
Has a few small areas to tighten over the course of the sleeve. 
On the topic matter....this interesting bird has beautiful electric blue feathers in its body and is quite vulture looking.
Interstingly enough the color in the photo was not enhanced at all with photoshop..... Just good lighting and a decent slr camera ! Will update with healed shots over time also.

Siren sleeve tattoo 1

This is part of the sleeve that will feature a siren girl as the main focus along with nautical instruments and other sea influenced objects....maybe a hand reaching from the water drowning to the sound of the harp playing.....
