From Concept To Skin: Hummingbird By Mario RJ Corbin


The pressure to get a tattoo right can be immense, not least when my landlady decided to get her very first tattoo today!! πŸ˜‰ Christine opted for this lovely concept by Patrick Fawcett. Whilst the design had to be changed considerably in lieu of its size and colour work, inevitably I managed to stay true to the original outline. There are no less than 10 colours in this little birdie. The picture doesn’t do it justice. If you are looking for a nature inspired tattoo do not hesitate to book a consultation today!

From Concept To Skin: RELENTLESS - Inked By Mario RJ Corbin

From Concept To Skin: RELENTLESS

Inspired by Nick Cannon’s tattoo my client decided that he wanted something similar with the word relentless instead of fearless. It’s always the seemingly simple tattoos that often present the largest challenge and this script was no exception. Nevertheless, the final piece came out great and I enjoyed getting to know Remi in the process. Looking to have some work done? Book a consultation today!

Sneak Peek: The Kraken - Designed By Mario RJ Corbin

Sneak Peek: The Kraken - Designed By Mario RJ Corbin

This beastie is finally beginning to take shape after some issues with my own creative block. Having recently worked on a humble octopus, trying to make this gentle animal seem fierce was no easy task at first. However, I managed to get in touch with my inner love for monster flicks and tonight we have our first peek at what will hopefully soon become an epic tattoo! Book a consultation if you would like to discuss creating something uniquely yours.

Half Moon Dresden Plate Quilt Block By Jennifer Fawcett

Half Moon Dresden Plate Quilt Block By Jennifer Fawcett

Machine pieced, hand appliquΓ©d and hand quilted. This quilt block was popular in the 1920s and 1930s, resembling a beautifully decorated plate. Here a fragment of a "plate" is presented in a linen-lined, jade green shadow box. The block reflects a modern sensibility and a meditative feeling of movement, reminiscent of a mandala. Price: $140.00

From Concept To Skin: Leo The Zodiac Lion ♌️ - Inked By Mario RJ Corbin

Leo The Zodiac Lion ♌️ - Inked By Mario RJ Corbin

Whilst waiting for Jesse’s Spartan tattoo to completely heal before continuing we decided to begin finishing up the lower part of his sleeve. The zodiac sign for Leo ♌️ was chosen and in the spirit of the rest of the sleeve, I put this together in a similar mosaic style as before with the Three Fates. Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty, Little Ball of Fur, Purr Purr Purr! If I have to explain it... πŸ˜‰ If you are looking for a new tattoo do not hesitate to contact us for a consultation today! Nota Bene: The family crest above my Lion was not done by me.
