SO I was tired of having my own work on my body, stuff I look at a year later and go mannnn I am so much better now.

So I went and paid Mr. Robson to do a piece for me, my family crest, to go down the back of my tricep to finish out the top half of a sleeve in progress. Check it out, serious upgrade from the original. I'm gonna have my tat artist work out the text bc he's a sick type guy.

  • Evanimal

    I don't mind my own work on me. It's about as intimate as a thing a human get get done, so I feel fine with it being mine.

    But now that I know so many good artists, and we've all gotten to the point of being able to produce this quality of work, I like the idea of getting it done. Kind of an homage to the small fraternity that we all belong to. Plus I can look at this in years and not be pissed that it could be better, like if it were mine.
  • Matt Borchert

    It's always easier to be a critic of your own work. I can't even look at a design I did two weeks ago without wanting to change it, more or less have it stuck on me.
  • Setup85

    Whoa! I would love something like that.
  • Craig Robson

    well this is an awesome thread!
    i was seriously honored that Evan asked me to do this for him, he was the perfect client to work for and i am super super happy with how the drawing came out. so much fun to do!

    good luck with the Tat man!

    artist movements are built from such things :)
  • M5Froth

    OOOOO I can't wait to see this finished. Who are you going to to get it done? I'm craving something new.

    Will you get my name inside a heart next?

    Are you aware that over time these fine lines might fade into each other leaving you with a big blurry spot ? Might be something to discuss with your tattoo artist upfront.

    My previous girlfriend has quite a few tattoos, done by one of the best in the world

    [Hank Schiffmacher / Hanky Panky: did i.e. Red Hot Chili Peppers [on picture], Johnny Depp and many many others] and now, about 10 years later they already look rather blurry. She doesn't have small details like in your example, luckily, or colors [which fade even faster because of the UV rays in the sun].

    Tattoos fade, thats what touchups are for. The artist probably won't do the black feathering and just make it a smooth black gradient.

    ps: henks old school, seems to do his lines with fat needles, which will blur over time. Smaller needle groupings and built up lines will stay sharp!

    i guess theres always gonna be a bit of a bleed when you tattoo your jeans.
  • Who is Ryan C.

  • RustyEight

    Inks and needles they use for modern tats don't bleed as much.
