Last week I met Tommy, who has six tattoos, one of which he shared with us:
He brought three or four pictures into Regino Gonzales when he was at Inkstop Tattoo and he came up with this design. Regino is now at Invisible NYC.
The line work took two and a half to three hours but he had to stop because, in Tommy's words, "I'm a bleeder". He came back after he healed for another two and a half hours of shading.
Tommy had a lot of nice protrait work and this piece seemed to just jump off of his left arm.
Regino's work has appeared previously on Tattoosday here and here.
Thanks to Tommy for sharing this great tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
