I've had an idea for another tattoo for sometime now, why I've been procrastinating I have no idea. Rolling with life, funds and the fact that my idea is fairly sizeable so it needs someone that can draw what I have pictured in my head! If you're reading this and think I'm going to give you an idea of what I'm after… Wrong! Keeping this one quiet until I can get it drawn up.
I've been trawling the Internet for inspiration and am pleased to say I can't find anything like the idea I have which to me means that it should be original. I'm going to get Dean at the Braintree Tattoo Studio to ink me again, he's a pretty talented guy and has a knack for keeping your mind off the pain. I must admit, although not the most comfortable thing I've ever had done, I certainly didn't think the inking process was all that bad. Well ok, so when he went over my collar bone it did kinda grab my attention more than the rest of my shoulder! To Dean's credit he gave me fair warning so at least I was prepared… I appreciate that people have different pain thresholds but I have to quietly laugh at some of the people you see on these American TV shows. Their reaction to the pain can be a little over the top, maybe it's done for the camera's hey?
I'm going to ask a friend of mine who happens to be an extremely talented artist to draw some ideas for me, I'm not sure if he's ever tried tattoo art however I'm sure he could turn his hand at anything! The work that I have seen from him is simply stunning, there's no other word for it! It's that good when viewing it practically looks like a photo of the subject. Many of the people who know him continuously encourage him to go pro and start selling his work, I'm unsure why he hasn't as yet, I guess it's one of those things you commit to once you know your ready.
Perhaps I'll post up the drawing here once it's ready, until then… Keep guessing
