COMMISSION YOUR INK. #Tattooed Leather Art. Lion and eagle
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
and here is how the final piece looked …..
