'Don't stop till you get enough'

I occupied a lot of my time during the summer through drawing out designs which i would really like to tattoo, in turn the subject matter was mostly pin up's. I love the poses and the lines the women create with their bodies.
i love the classic pin up look, that 1940's world war look, when women were women and men were men, the community would be there for each other and you knew the name of everyone down your street and could rely on your neighbours. Im lucky in that way, i still have that community spirit on the street where i live, i not only have family members living down the same street as me, but friends and loved ones who i have known since birth, its never quiet in my house and you know each others business.... and i would'nt have it any other way!!

'lady luck'


'Annie Ace'


During the summer break i 'paid the rent' through placing pretty pictures on people's bodies. i have only been tattooing under a year, and i love every second of it.
Ever since i can remember, i have been fascinated with this form of art. Literally since i was tiny and could recognise pictures on peoples skin i adored it.
i always knew that i would have plenty of tattoos, and as the years have gone on i have undertook my fair share of the needles for my passion, and with every one i have always wanted more, i now know i wont be complete until i pretty much have my own body suit!!

In my eyes, everyone should have one (decent ones, mind you)

'simple colour flower ankle'

'Michael Jackson portrait, leg'

'cherub/heart tattoo'

'first gorilla tattoo sketch'

'gorilla tattoo, back'

'I just can't stop loving you'

Ever since i can remember i have always liked Michael Jackson, i would even say 'love'. His music, his song writing is just genius, i give credit where credit is due, and there are many genius song writers out there, but i feel none and no one will ever come in close to comparison the late, great M.J.
His dancing, his voice were incredible, he was a true entertainer, one in a million. like millions around the world the day he died was truly sad to me. Like many others i had tickets to go and see him at his O2 shows, to which i will say till the day i die, would have been the one greatest experience in my live.
R.I.P Michael

After his death, i drew his portrait many times, here are a couple...

Random Sketches

"Man in the Mirror"

Well here goes, my first post on my first blog ever!!

Here are just a few random sketches i did during the summer break.
i had this obsession with drawing portraits for some reason, which is good because i feel i really worked on my technique and improved on my portraits, which is saying something considering a year ago i hated the thought of having to draw a portrait, yet alone doing one, however now, i really do quite enjoy it.
