Here is a cool Daruma in a chrysanthemum Matt did on our old mate Steve today.
So it's been a while since I posted anything that's been happening here. But when I try and think of what's been happening I can't really come up with much, other than working, working and working. Obviously we are all busy as usual but other than that there isn't a whole heap to report. So maybe I will just get straight to pics (of all the working).
Stuff Matt's been up to:
Here is an in progress shot of the koi back piece on Scott. Probably finish this next session.
And an update on the Hannya mask on Dale, still all the colour to go but most of the shading is there now.
Here is the Koi fish leg piece on Shaun. Just the flowers to go pretty much, so not too much longer on this one.
This week the new addition of Attitude Magazine (Adelaide publication for those who aren't from here) came out and we were lucky enough to get a short editorial (page 6, if you want to take a look see). So that was nice to see, it's just a little interview with Matt and a picky of the shop.
Matty started another epic venture on our mate Luke. Here is a pic of the line drawing. It is covering his rib/stomach area, right down to the knee, so massive. This is Jigokudayu (Lady from Hell). Her robe will actually be decorated with scenes of hell- but that will come later. This is just the simple drawing to get on first, all the finer details will be added later. And she is surrounded by skeletons, doing random stuff (great explanation from me, I know). You get the idea anyway, this is going to take a while, so I thought we can take a beginning shot.
Just a candid little shot of Matt starting this epic venture on Luke. I think Matt may get some sick enjoyment out of inflicting that much pain on people.
BOOM! box on the chest.
And here is an in progress shot of the line work on a wolfie chest piece.
And some work Simone has been doing:
Obviously this is just the outline of an epic back piece started a little while back.
And this one still has all the colour to go but you get the idea.
So I think we have finally decided that we are officially the worlds worst photographers and we are actually getting a professional to come in and take some shots of everyone's work. So hopefully there will be a bunch of new work up here soon and with way better quality then we have been able to get before. Unfortunately our shop is just way too dark and our camera just too old. And I think we are just idiots when it comes to taking good tattoo photo's. But anyway, we are looking at rectifying the bad photography very soon, stay tuned!
And just another reminder about Terry James coming next week. We are looking forward to having him. If your interested in getting an appointment with him, he may be able to squeeze a few more jobs in. So send us an email if you keen and see the following blog entry on his work and how to contact him.
Think that's it for this instalment.
Happy long weekend!
ps for those who are interested Matt does post a lot of work as he is doing it on instagram and join us on twitter if your keen to see what we are up to at the shop. @MattDeverson If you have an iphone it's easy and free- join up!
pps I think I have convinced Jamie and Simone to join instagram too, so you will probably see their work on there pretty soon too.
