COMMISSION YOUR INK. #Tattooed Leather Art. Lion and eagle

Commission Piece

I have just completed a really lovely project, which was commissioned from  James & Bec, in the UK.

They were kind enough to go to see an exhibition, I was in & decided that they liked my work but wanted to commission a piece which was personal to them

Bec is american and James is english so they picked up on that as a theme to their personal piece.

Together, we created a piece around the american eagle & ‘british lion’

We chose roses to go into the work. The tudor rose (british national flower) & the grand prix rose (red) which was their wedding flower

The work is tattooed with one needle, and a regular tattoo machine & ink. Then tooled. The leather is natural veg tan leather, which has been dyed and oiled in layers

Here are some shots of the work in progress
