Henna tattoo turned permanent

Persons who love henna tattoo or temporary tattoo are undoubtedly fascinated with the permanent body art. They only fear of getting the permanent by consequences it is being linked. The norms of hardly getting job, parents won’t probably like, persons around you may think about your tattoo the other way around and the pain the machine gives are the things that wrap-up their hesitation.

After getting hennaed for two days, the design in her back has been turned into permanent. Wings with an inverted G-clef seem like an angel who fell in love with music. Our first session lasted for almost 8 hours of enduring pain with breaks in between.

Another henna turned permanent is a design of a warrior with a spear done for almost 3 hours.

Added a polynesian cross in his chest which incorporate his existing polynesian sleeve tattoo.

Tattoos are now socially accepted. It’s been said that our body is a temple but when will we redecorate our temple to make it new and grand? Mora sad ug naay tattoo ang artist ba. Hahaha. AB rh+ man gud akong dugo, pangitaunon daw. I have to donate sa before having some pero sa tinuod wala pa koy design. Have ask some studio but the price is too expensive for me. A full sleeve tattoo worth P20,000. Ha? *sigh

Koi and Geisha Tattoo

While setting up machines and other things needed for a tattoo session, we’re in front of a television watching for NBA 2011 slamdunk and Donaire’s boxing in the other channel. We had our breakfast past 10 am as planned to start before lunchtime yet, we didn’t proceed until the slamdunk ended. With the use of thermal paper, my koi and geisha design (her daughter) were stenciled so that the portrait is accurate in proportion. But as the session started, we suddenly stopped and went back to the living room to watch as Montiel knocked out in the 2nd round of the main event.

This was the so far the large piece I’ve done when I started tattooing early last year. Probably the design will be completed within 3 meetings since the client has only an average level of pain tolerance. As the session grew in hours, his leg was shaking every touch of the needle in his skin. The last part that was inked is the sakura tree located at the back of his leg.

First session - the outlines, two more sessions to  go… :)
