Ink’d by bandaid-l0ve
So I did my first tattoos today. They’re pretty shit but I had so much fun and can’t believe how heavy coil machines are, haha. Anyway, here’s what I ended up with. Brian and Karl the grapefruits were great clients and smelled really good.Used my coiled machine with a 5rl and silverback black ink. Most of this was drawn on with a pen first, some using references, because the stencils wouldn’t stick to the fruit.

I’m a 25 year old Australia female. I’m irritable, overly complicated, flawed, broken and I hold grudges.

I get emotionally invested in tv shows and books but not in my own relationships. I freak out at public displays of affection and am bad at showing how much I appreciate and love someone.

I like reading but it makes me sleepy. I draw a lot but never think it’s good enough. I think I’m ugly, fat and just plain horrible.

I don’t like people often and have been hurt by pretty much everyone I ever have liked. I don’t trust easy and doubt everything. My brain is mean, to me and to people I love.

I’m a horrible person and don’t deserve someone to love me.

Please date me.

Is there a dating service on tumblr? There should be, because normal dating sites are either for creepers or normal people looking for other normal people. I want someone I can share doctor who plot discussions with and bitch about how long it’s taking the new Sherlock to come out.

I want to know where my kind of people hang out and find each other cause its too hard to have anxiety issues and try to meet people normally.

“Why do you want to be a tattoo artist?”
-Anonymous

Because I love art and would love to be able to put art onto people for them to cherish forever. It’s a nice comfortable place between graphic design and visual art, you can be creative and go nuts but it’s also restricted to space and what is possible to do with a needle and skin. I love everything about it.

So it seems I will be starting to tattoo on fruit as of next week.

I’m a little excited I guess, I mean it’s not a big step in my career or anything…HOLY SHIT I’M SO FUCKING EXCITED BUT ALSO VERY NERVOUS I HOPE I SHOW POTENTIAL!

Buying some grape fruit and going to have my first go at setting up my machines.
I have three now, all given to me by people I have worked with over the last 5 months. A Dragonfly shader from my manager, a coil liner from a tattoo artist and another coil liner from a fellow apprentice and friend.

HOLY CRAP! I will be uploading photos of the poor grapefruit, even if it’s the worst thing ever done I want solid proof that I’m one step closer to my dream job. Hard work really does pay off :)

Wish me luck~

Forbidden Fruit by bandaid-l0ve Another piece done for my portfolio. Decided to do a sort of bible story design, using a bit of old school style but mixed up with my own thing. Overall I’m happy with how this turned out, like my snake and the apple, and for my first time trying to draw smoke I’m happy with how it turned out (it took me a lot of tries to get anywhere near right, lol).

Elemental II by bandaid-l0ve  The second of my elemental oriental pieces. Aside from the shitty attempt at mossy grass, I really like this one. The tigers face looks a bit off but I love my dragon, even if it’s not very traditional looking. The coloring for this took me soooo long, specially all of the black and solid brown.

Elemental by bandaid-l0ve So here are my latest submissions to my tattoo portfolio. I decided I wanted to do the four elements as my oriental pieces, and after some research and talking to one of the artists at my work I found out there are actual animal elements with their own stories. Had lots of fun drawing these up, but the coloring was murder. Aside from some obvious mistakes I’m still pretty happy with them. Sorry for the shitty phone camera photo.
