Skull tattoo

This tattoo belongs to my colleague, Ruth. She would greatly appreciate her custom tattoo remaining hers alone, thank you.

The design was delivered to Ruth in a dream and we worked together on design for several weeks to make it a reality! To make it realistic we photographed a real skull and real roses. I used warm and cold light for the photographs. Sounds easy but it took a lot of effort to find a nice looking skull in Dublin that we could use!

In Progress...

it's beautiful

Hi, I really like the tattoo it's coloring is great! i was wondering if i could ask you a huge favor? I've been looking everywhere for someone to draw up the tattoo that I've been wanting for so long. I haven't been able to find any single person to draw it for me and there are in tattoo shops in distance for me to go to. Once I get an actual design drawn i would love to take it to my nearest tattoo shop I've been searching for an artist to do this for me and with the talent of this tattoo i'd love for you guys to do it for me it would mean the world. Please get back to me.

Dude, does anyone else see an eye in the middle of the bottom rose? :) I dig this style.

Probably one of the best sugar skull tattoos I have ever seen. It's original, beautifully shaded and I love the sparkling diamond on the forehead. The red and blue clash and compliment eachother at the same time and the smaller details on the skull are expertly done. Instant fave I LOVE this design :)

i love the color choice. the shading on the nose of the skull is by far my favorite, the contours and slight glimmer of light make the skull more realistic. well done.

The skull is perfect and so gorgeous *_* don't like the roses so much but that's only my opinion. the work is just pretty awesome, no question.
