Venturing out of Sublime and into Sailor Jerry

Oh, doesn't that sound kinda dirty?! Well in the sense there is about to be some nudity I guess it is! Yea, I have going with the "try new things" lately and I have been working on my transferring skills.. Still not great! But I have offically finished three pieces with it, and I am starting to feel more confident.



The You're Sweet Bib was my first transfer.. Then these ladies walked into my life.. And I have had a ton of fun with them.. and a lot of frustration. I can say now that I suck at hands! and not that great at boobs! Granted the Geisha had one boob way bigger than the other so I had to work on that one freehanded.



These both are based off of Sailor Jerry Flash.. we all know his work isn't perfect but that isn't the point.. Its the history of tattoos, or at least the most american history of tattoos. I guess dating a tattoo artist for five years gave me sort of a complex on tattoos. It has changed my opinion of tattoos from what they were, but one thing has never changed.. I still love the ladies.. Traditional pin ups are the best to me.. I just love how they show the female body in a beautiful way.. not a trashy way.

Both are for sale at my etsy store, both come with frames in the pictures. Peeping Tom SOLD! Geisha still available $22.00!

And i love the Red head.

Do you transfer free hand or use transfer paper?
