|Macabre Jackalope Coloured In|
The thought of colouring in a tattoo intensified my nervousness as admittedly, I haven't done one before on a person. I had recently purchased a set of fifty 1oz Eternal Ink colours so I had no excuse to refuse. Other tattooists went out of their way to remind me how tattooing synthetic skin in colour would be different to human skin - which seemed obvious to me. However, in truth, I did not find it too dissimilar in the end. Fortunately, Todd Beck, master tattoo artist and mentor, was present this morning before Darrin arrived. He looked over my preparation and work station and gave me the thumbs up. He even had a go on a Cheyenne Hawk Pen, his first time. I have a sneaking suspicion he prefers his coil machines. Darrin was happy (and probably a little bit relieved) to see Todd there. The end result was just over 6 hours long. I know, too long, but frankly, I took my time and yes, ensured that Darrin was comfortable throughout the entirety of the experience. Colouring the jackalope in was the most time consuming, particularly the red blood pool at the bottom of the jackalope. I used a 7RL and a 7RS to complete this project.

|Complimentary Aftercare Package Provided With Every Tattoo!|
Upon completion of Darrin's tattoo he received a mini care package courtesy of Ye Olde Cock Tattoo Emporium. This includes a measured to fit piece of UltraDerm Film Bandage (similar to Saniderm), one complimentary sachet of Hustle Butter (.25oz) and one bar of Dove Unscented soap for sensitive skin. He also purchased a tube of Bepanthen. If you are interested in getting a tattoo done or would like to even have an old tattoo refreshed, don't hesitate to contact me today!
