You're my hero @ian !!! Thanks a million for sharing these. Agreed with @hogg, that Roper backpiece is stunning!!! Is that on Seth Wood by any chance?

No worries, it's the least I could do :)

That piece wasn't on Seth, i was on a random attendee I believe. It was also featured in the new Bloodwork:Bodies book...

Ah, I see. I sent the picture to Meyer, and he thought it looked like Seth's Roper-backpiece. Did you get your hands on the new Bloodwork book? As soon as my finances is on the up and up I'll place my order. That thing looks spectacular!

I was thinking about how great that convention must have been.I wish there was a convention in the North East that even comes close to the quality of artists at that convention..Must be awesome to witness all that great tattooing in one place.

@embers it was cool to beet you (although super brief) thanks for asking to take the photo. Always appreciated.

Seth Wood's backpiece from Roper is a golden dragon. Yes I've seen it, yes I have photos, no they won't ever be on the Internet. The less Roper tattoos on the Internet, the better in my opinion. I saw a few of his tattoos this weekend and they were all amazing.

The SFO convention was fantastic for Valerie and I. Maybe I'll make a blog post about it but it was a pretty humbling and inspiring thing to make new friends, see old friends, meet heroes & legends and all of them were super cool. People I consider way more advanced and accomplished tattooers than myself said very complimentary things about my work.

Great photos also, thanks!

    • looks like a solid shop!
    • You know, while I was getting tattoed we spoke about the full sleeve, since I've started with the idea to get it done (not in a short amount of time because due work my week is full) and he just said something about the druid girl. But we haven't any conversation about it anymore so it was kinda a flash instead of something wanted.  Then here COVID-19 came and we used to stay in lockdown per 2 months and just now tattoo studios opened (like one/2months ago) and I have to find a window of time where I can contact him. So basically nothing has started yet :)      This is what actually happened with the wolf. I went him saying "I want the face of a wolf here" and he did all the rest, surprising me with that moon etc so I was kinda surprised with the final effect because it wasn't what I exceptecd but It was what I wanted without even telling him the background.  It sounds weird but I gave him "free hands" and imho the result is stunning. So basically I would find the main subject (woman) and the background which suits the wolf (forest etc.). So I wanted to research something in terms of what I have in mind. But still, I will contact him for sure as long as we both have time to spare, finding what I like the most/suit the best  
    • He's a good artist... your concepts are all in the same vein... except the dryad girl which is a different direction. They aren't anything like what he was suggesting though. These also aren't what I'd think of initially when thinking of woman portraits... they are more surreal than what people commonly ask for.  Makes me wonder if you showed them to him yet? I'd give them to the artist, tell them a few things that you like and things you don't like about them... and put down a deposit so that he can start drawing.
