Mametz – Somme memorial tattoo

Val came in for a piece based on the Mametz Wood Somme memorial (please take a read of the history here, its very interesting:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mametz_Wood_Memorial). This was a lot of fun to do, and really interesting to hear about Val and Nigels travels to WWI and WWII sites.

“This morning, twenty men buried in one long grave,
a broken mosaic of bone linked arm in arm,
their skeletons paused mid dance-macabre”

Sweet dreams

‘Sweet Dreams’ – Paul had a small gap on his wrist at the end of his sleeve. Its a small spot, beneath wrist bone and hand so extremely tricky to tattoo, and painful. Well done mate – was good fun. (Not the best photo, but will get a better one once healed).

Russian Doll re-work

Helen already had a tribal style butterfly on her bum, which due to how large and dark it was meant it would be a pig to cover. As such, i managed to come up with a work around based on one of her favourite things – a russian dolly. This is large, from bum and up her side, and she sat for a solid 5.5 odd hours – hardcore! well done helen! (apologies for photo, forgot my camera. Better healed shot to follow once colours have settled down and match the old tattoo better)
