Just a quick update with some work ive gotten finished this month. First some roy lichtenstein art done on a customers tricep area. We left off the word bubble that the original had and punched up the color a bit to keep the contrast up on skin. Pop art (like catholic and hindu imagery) is easy to tattoo and always looks striking on skin.
Next up we have an owl among roses on a great customer, she has a bunch of traditional stuff that this needed to fit in to so we kept the color palette simple and old-schoolish.
My first Black Cat tattoo done at Black Cat tattoo. J had the blue waves and purple clouds alreadty on a previous tattoo that this one had to tie into but the connection was no problem.
This lovely lilly is on the inner bicep of a customer who (along with her boyfriend) get tattoos from me when they are in town to visit family from michigan. Theres a lot of talented tattooers in Michigan so im flattered thart they wait til they visit pittsburgh to get tattooed.
The shop is coming along and Im sore as a motherfucker. Real work is HARD. heh heh. . . . .
