Some little works of mine as a step to be a fully tattoo artist someday…maski sa pangandoy lang. (lol)

This is the art I love the most though I’m just a newbie for this media but the fact that this would forever be in the body of your clients made me think that they will always remember you as their artist. Satisfaction in our side as the clients love our artworks. I’m still learning in this and getting tips from the pros, asking things that somehow turn to be useful for future references. I love seeing tattoo conventions and registering tattoo websites as to create and come up with new ideas and original designs.

A koi tattoo for a cover up of a messy one.

An ambigram for a wife of my officemate, read as JOSEPHUS and ANGELIQUE.

 Henna Tattoo

Face Painting

Last January 16, we stationed our tent beside the Crown Regency in Jones Avenue, Cebu City. We started our session after our breakfast with a few clients since the rain was pouring down. By noon, lines for those who wanted some henna tattoo extended that made us alternately took our lunch so that work must go on. Four of us, artists, seem didn't know each other due to the busyness per client. We rated our work 30-50-100 depending on the design and the size of the tattoo. We also do some face paintings with a minimum of P50.

Our annual activity in line with the Sinulog celebration made us reminisce our past as our college mates were there visiting the venue where we, as a group, usually gathered for the same activity 13 years ago.

PINATIKAI 2011 - A night of Music and Ink was held last January 15, a day before the Grand Sinulog Parade, at the Mango Square Roofdeck, Mango Avenue, Cebu City. Tattoo artists and enthusiasts gathered to join and witness this annual tattoo convention. Gate was open at 12 noon and the contest began by 2:00 pm with a registration of P50 for all the participants and spectators. Though the weather wasn't fair but the event was successful. Congrats to all the winners!
