Good guy Ryan over at http://filmfallon.tumblr.com/ helped me create a time lapse video. It captures about 6 hours in total out of an 8 hour session, and was pretty interesting to make. I think this is a pretty cool way to showcase tattooing, and hope to do many more in the future.
The video shows me tattooing Dee with an upper arm sleeve tattoo. Her dad was a sailor, and so she figured a nautical themed tattoo of some sort would be a good reminder of him. We decided on a mermaid, and after a few sketches and refining touches,m we landed on this design..
Dee sat like an absolute champion, for a full days work, with no complaints - great customer!
I love this style of work, with bold colours and hints of geometry. Drop me a message if I can draw you a design up!
