Had the first step of my new leg piece this morning. Quite painful, but really impressed with it.

Thanks guys,
I am having two more pinups around leg, with a bit of background.
It will be done by Andy ay Utat2, who has taught me a hell of a lot!

Hi Dave

Great tattoo, I am still hoping to get to see AJ myself soon. When you having your opening at the new shop? What about a wurlitzer Juke Box to fill in between or a record turn table?

Just a little update. Just been back to AJ for a little bit more done on my leg. All freehanded on. He is a diamond.
Love it!

That's looking badass mate! I love how he's kept that pretty simple so it looks striking from a distance, real good work.
When you consider how much blue he's put in there it give you a real appreciation that big bold work like this really does look the bollocks! Awesome. I'd love to sod something big like this.

Thanks for the comments.
I still need a bit of inspiration for the gap on the front please.
Im itching for it finished now, and cant think of owt to fill the gap. Andy suggester a big 99' Ice cream, but i think it will spoil it.
Ideas please??

Since you have Bettie on one side and Consuela on the other...music and Mexico...why not do an old school microphone to tie into the music side and maybe surround it with some roses and a bit of dia de los muertos flair to tie into the spanish beauty?

Thats it mate. There hasn't been many weeks where i haven't been in pain, or itching, so its having a rest.
Plenty more skin on the body though :icon_cheesygrin:
