In addition to painting flowers and animals I love to paint tattoos. In hindsight as a school leaver I probably should've become a Tattoo Artist, but instead I'm able to get my kicks out of drawing them onto the female subjects in my paintings.
This is my current work-in-progress called 'The True Believer' (80x80cm) which explores Sailor Jerry Tattoos. I have only just begun to block in the colour of these fabulous tattoo classics and this week hope to start detailing these designs.
To date I have explored a handful of different tattoo genres in my work including Indian Henna Tattoos, Japanese Tattoos and Black and Grey Tattoos. See below
