New Ink - Now wth added COLOUR!!!

Post by TheGoodDr on Wed Nov 10, 2010 3:28 pm

Some 14 years after getting my first tattoo, I finally got enough courage to get something substantial done on my right arm. Both tatts are based on art drawn by Angel Medina when he was working on the KISS Psycho Circus book.

This first tatt is from the story arc that featured The Fox (the late Eric Carr):


I got this done on the inner bicep of the same arm just this past Friday:


Both tatts will be coloured and when finished, I'll have a full half sleeve of KISS tattoos Wink

Awesome stuff man. I'm still keen on getting some GI Joe related ink done - either the Cobra logo and/or the Arashikage clan symbol (the red bars).

That's awesome, second one must've hurt like a bitch!
I'm thinking about getting some tatts, as long as I can distract myself from my needle/pain fear Razz
Currently I just want to get the word "Rumours" (aka Fleetwood Mac's album) on my right wrist, and "Tusk" (their other brilliant album) done in a similar script on my left wrist.

Got my inner arm tatt finished just this past Tuesday. Took nearly four hours to complete and let me tell you, it HURT.....particularly the flames which go right up into my arm pit!

Nice work chief. I guess me slapping you under your arm when we next meet would be poor form.

TST, this tatt cost me $1,100 all up. The first session (outline and the black) took 3 hours. The second session (all the colouring) took nearly 4 hours to complete.

I was amazed at the detail and time involved with the colouring session. There are FIVE different colours just in The Demon's tongue!

The first tattoo (The Fox) has cost me $1,350 (over three sessions) and it's still not finished. This has a lot more detail in it. Took nearly 2 and half hours just for the outline, 3 hours for the black and shading and so far 3 hours to colour it. I've probably got another 3 hours to go to have it completed.

And then I need to 'fill' in the gaps between the two tattoos to create the full sleeve......

I don't mind top dollar for anything that I purchase. I hear all the time people say how they pay such and such for a tatt that they got done in Bali or some other place.....but truth be known, you get what you pay for. The place I go to took me 7 months to get my first appointment because they are renown not only here in Perth, but Australia wide as having the some of the best artists around. And I think the money I've spent and end result shown here demonstrates value for money Smile

Very impressive...both the tatts and the price Shocked Fair play to you with that sort of time under the needle, I certainly couldn't deal with that. I'll find less painful ways to part with my cash Wink

Again, another reason I'm glad I know my mate, he's done a tour of Europe, mainly through Germany, learning from some of the best artists on the world, value for money is no question here as he normally charges $160/ hr, but I've known him for 15 odd years, I consider myself VERY lucky.....

Yeah, place I go to (Holdfast) charges $180.00 p/hour....not cheap that's for sure. I got a mate who's spent over $10,000 on his tatts at the same place.

Here's The Fox tatt with some colour. I love the 3D effect that Nathan (the artist) has been able to recreate here on my arm Smile

Nice.
I'm currently doing some very half-arsed tattoo research (artists, in particular). I only want a small word on my wrist but I'm taking my time thinking it over and trying to find an artist I'll be happy with. Though I'm guessing these days if you want something really specific, they just print it onto that outlining paper and go over it with the gun (which is what I want).

Over 3 hours of work and happy with the result, it will make a great starting piece for the whole leg

Cap will be left grey - hopefully over the next 6 months I will be adding a few other marvel characters to this leg just not sure who yet. Most of them will probably be grey/black with a splash of colour to them. I intend to continue the outline colours through the whole piece from knee to ankle.
Not sure how far afield I am going to go I may stick with an older roster of the avengers yet just not sure.

Picked up a couple of more pieces over the last month or so. Wanted something Star Wars as it has been such a big part of my life and as Boba is my favorite character  this is what we ended up with.
