I love it when presented with a really, really, really crap tattoo. Tend to do a lot of coverups LOL, kinda like here's some lines, make it into sumfin, my kinda fun. Doesn't take much to improve on them LOL..Lot of work in this one and just getting started, the design posted is little more than the basic idea of the piece, I tend to tatt 90% freehand once the design and a very basic template is on...just because I can and it can come up with some surprising results especially when trying to make it all line up with existing crap LOL. Will post some more as I go cause god forbid I have forgotten what an airbrush is and have nothing else to post atm LOL, utes still in pieces, and tattoo much more of late anyway but will get the gun out soon enough once the misses is well. Hope you have all been good boys and gals The original (cough, cough) design. The design, quite rough but just outline the original and went off that to start creating some different crap to cover the first crap LOL How the design looked wrapped around a container to give the basic 3 views of the tatt, essentially it is 3 different tatts in one, hand with gun for back /side of leg. hand with rose is the front side bit and the skull of course is the center of the leg, do have to add a bit more design as we have more room on the ankle than what we thought for some more rib cage and shld flow nice with the ankle area. and after a few hrs on the gun, as mentioned, lots more to do but essentially not much different to airbrushing, the erasing technique is a cow though LOL Must admit though, have no doubt this one will have a few challenging moments, hope to get a bit more done of the next cple weeks so will post the finished result when there..
