Tattoo

There is a bit of difficulty that comes with putting up pictures of my art. Sometimes it’s hard deciding if it’s one to share or one to keep to myself. Then I spend time thinking what else I could do to a piece, or what to do better next time etc etc. Typical artist thoughts.

This post is easy. All I have to do is post pictures of a work that is perfectly finished. It’s a work of exact proportions, geometry and detail. It’s Cory Ferguson’s art but it’s on my arm. 

The process took over a year to complete plus a year waiting on a consultation before that. It’s the good kind of waiting.

It went a little something like this:

1) For a few years I planned the essentials of the tattoo and searched for someone who could meet my insane expectations of clean lines and attention to detail.

2) Cory was found and I asked him for something combining some nature and geometry. I showed him a too-big list of things he could add into the mix.

3) Cory did everything else and I didn’t ask for anything different as he went along. Why mess with genius.

4) He probably clocked more than 20 hours and this is the result:

Not bad for a first tattoo. Of course, huge thanks to Cory at Good Point Tattoos.
