Thanks for reading our blog, it’s a good way to get to know what we have been up to behind the scenes, in our tattoo studio in Leeds City Centre.
In this blog, I would like to talk about Andy and his sleeve we are working on.
I have been tattooing Andy for over 5 years now. We have worked on a dragon on his chest, the dragon started on his chest, with the body flowing to the rib cage, and it was his first tattoo.
What a place for his first tattoo, however I recommend my clients to go for the place they wish to have the tattoo, instead of worrying about placement due to how much is going to hurt.
I always believe, how much is gonna hurt and how much is gonna cost, is something we can always get through it, as the end result is what matters most.
However, tattooing someone on the ribs is not an easy task, not only for the customer who have to sit still, but also to the tattoo artist who’s trying to do the best tattoo in a really awkward area.
So having Andy for the first time getting tattooed on the ribs, was a bit of a challenge, however I try to ease off the challenge, with explanation, and educating the client about the tattoo process. That’s why a consultation is very important in my opinion, to get the client aware of what’s going to happen, and the patience it’s involved.
After finishing Andy’s ribs, he took a year brake, which I completely understood, and he came back to me for a full sleeve.
What a difference, the arm is a lot easier to tattoo than the ribs, so our session is less painful, and I’m getting to know him more now, as we can talk more through our sessions.
Tattooing Andy had been quiet a journey, not only artistic but personally. He gives me hope, with how there are still really nice people in the world, who mean well, and want to do good.
Thank you Andy, when your full sleeve tattoo is finished it will be hard not to tattoo and see you.
Thank you so much for choosing me to tattoo you.
Until next time.
