Horror pin up, the nurse would look sweet with pink hair, eye shadow and traditional aqua blue uniform. Filler full gore splatter and skin melting effects and shading the bone saw to make it apear like its coming out of the skin. I think if anyone is game, I might add the nurse's hand clasping at the victim's throat as it looks a bit plain.

A Babushka Sleeve designed purely based on the idea. I must admit the shape of these dolls becomes a bit daunting when required to make them symmetrical on both sides and then drawing (Tattooing) them multiple times. This would only cover the front of ones arm and wouldn't wrap around at all. They are almost stacked on top of each other this way.

This flower is part of a filigree and hand prints piece that'll spread over the back and chest slightly. I let her walk out with a finished product instead of a pile of lines. Atleast between now and the next sesh she can remain stoked on it.

I've wanted to do this one for a while now. I designed this a few months ago and recently pinned it to my new pinboard displays at work. This bloke saw it and wanted it straight away. I remember when I designed it I was unsure if I could handle the straight lines required in this piece but they came out well even on this scale. It's located on the upper thigh and the razor is slightly bigger than it might be actual scale.

My costumer found a wicked picture of a skull on the thumb as per the design. I pretty much took out all the qualities we liked including the colour scheme and the third eye. Then I added my own skull features and decided to discard the jaw to be replaced with black gore or some kind.

The Native Indian on the chest, originally one of two historic warriors (Viking) designed for each side. However only one is likely to be completed as this was a bit much to handle. I would have liked to have spend maybe another half an hour to add the finishing touches but he had enough for a while.

A good start to a brutal sleeve, still work in progress. My costumer travelled about 4 hours to get this done so over the course of two days we managed to get this far. As seen in the edit, the dragon was done on Friday and its settled in well while the socceress is fresh from Saturday morning.

I was very keen on this bear tattoo. Originally I designed it to the endth degree to work out how I was going to apply the fur for this beast. Which is what it needed as it wraps around virtually the whole back of the calf. It didn't take me half as long as I thought once I got my mojo going but the shading was still a demanding session. Both for me and my customer.

The artist from the Satanic Hell Comic Book Series did drew a killer illustration of a guitar player (seen top right corner) I drew that character of the screen in my sketchbook for pleasure and added long hair as I saw fit. Then I decided to make up some of my own band members. I wasn't gunna upload this page but I like it so make sure you all know that one guitar player was not generated from my own imagination... I liked working in this style as well.

When I start sketching like this I usually have a fair idea of the main elements I wanna draw but all together I start in one corner and hope the picture turns out okay by the time I reach the other end.

This Geisha Horror series was mostly inspired by Tim Kern, Jeff Gogue and Victor Portugal's work. These are done in Indian Ink and red Wash. All of which are now fully framed and professionally presented.

I don't know exactly why I decided to make this but basically it's a Hannya mask with a few different textures. I used pastel to steer away from painting and see how I'd go. This canvass is pretty big actually and depite the fact its only black and white I love how smooth the blending can become.

The Cherry Blossom upon a Samurai's Grave... Nah not really, coming up with titles for art is not my thing. Moving on, someone gave me the idea to paint a Cherry Blossom one day and I decided to paint this

Don't suppose I mentioned it but I'm dutch so after mom came in to get her lower back tattooed with a dutch boy and girl kissing like the traditional tile paintings I recently designed this one. A windmill with Tulips in the fore-ground. I picture this in grey was with blue flowers and maybe a hint of blue through the image. This would sit perfect on the thigh or on the back of the calf.

The Zombie nurse was done on our new apprentice. I didn't make her up unfortunatly, he found the original on the internet and asked if I was keen to do it... Yes... Yes I am the doctor said. We are going to start another Zombie Pin Up girl on the inside of his calf so poke an eye out.

Herman Munster on the side of the calf. The first portrait I've ever attempted and with it's contrasting light source turned out pretty well. I used a stencil to work out the major features in the face and used the actual framed copy as reference once I got into the shading.

About Me:
I've spend most of my life chasing a career in the video games industry but ended up in the tattoo world. In 2010 I completed my Bachelor of Interactive Entertainment at Qantm College Melbourne.

I'm currently working at Sharp Art Tattoos in Bairnsdale, now as a qualified Tattoo Artist after a 6 month apprenticeship. Eventually, I hope to be able to solely focus on my own style, combining Realistic, Stylistic and Abstract elements around Horror, Demonic and Apocolyptic themes.

With tattooing, my digital and concept art background is somewhat limited. I hope to get involved in projects that'll re-fuel the passion for any simular form of art while distracting my mind from pure tattoo influenced art. Thus, by improving my already diverse artistic skill-set I'll ultimatly become a...
