tattoo painting



"When the ink left Audrey's skin..."
130 x 50cm 
Watercolour and  on 600gsm watercolour cartridge 

The lovely ladies from Just Another Agency contacted me recently and invited me to do an artwork for an upcoming Melbourne Exhibition. 

I had a bit of a difficult time making this one, and felt a little up and down during the creating process - could have been because I left it a little last minute, oh my! 

I have always been a fan of ladies with full body tattoos, and wouldn't mind one day, doing a series of paintings revolving around this theme. 
Enjoy x

  4. I like so many things about this - the colour hair, pink shadow, mexican skull... the list goes on! And the colours you've used are really well done.
    As far as full body tattoos go I think angelique houtkamp's work is a good reference. I've got her first book and there's some nice stuff in there :) Although she's just one of many...
