A new approach to getting a Tattoo
Each and every tattoo I create is freehand without stencils, templates or previous design. No two pieces are alike and no one will ever be able to get what you have, nor will I be able to duplicate it. Your piece of permanent body art is created just for YOU!
I start one of two ways; with watercolor paint directly on your preferred tattoo location area if we are in the "idea" stage or I prepare your skin, set up my colors and paint with the tattoo ink (with a brush) on the area and then tattoo the painting! Creating original art right there on your body allows me to design for each person's unique shapes, curves, and personalities.
I don't use other designs or tweak existing images. Nor do I tattoo any words. I just paint what feels right for each person's body based on that session, our connection, my natural artistic strengths and prayerful inspiration. Of course, I always take into mind what the client has come with as an inspiration point; their images, ideas, and then set them aside and create without boundaries and preconceived design. At this stage, it's only paint so there is no pressure on myself or you!
I have learned over time, with 25 yrs as a Fine Artist and with my Tattoo Art, that when I approach creating this way, it always produces the best results! The most loved and successful Fine Art Paintings and Tattoos I've done have come from this uninhibited place of inspiration, where both myself and the client step out of the way and let real inspiration come naturally!
I don't charge for the design/consultation time. This opens up comfortable space to relax, connect, have a coffee and create without the pressure of budget or time. Once we confirm our painted design, I prepare to begin and start to charge from there. I charge $150/HR.
If in the consultation, we find that the inspiration does not line up with each other than we take the cue and we finish our coffee and visit and I refer you to another talented Artist who can fulfill your specific design wishes. I would rather send you elsewhere to get what you want, then give you something to have forever, that neither of us is happy with. I like being able to look people in the eye when I see them again in public.
It's important for my prospective clients to look through my portfolio so you can see what my style is. If my style of Fine Art & Tattoos resonate with you and you are open to this creative approach, you will enjoy the process and the results created for you at Blessings Studio - Book A Session
