tattoo parlour picture



A nice local tattoo place opened recently and has bare walls. I had some inkage done there and the guy was very accommodating with his rates.As thank you and some local exposure I decided to make a suitable tattoo place picture. The canvas is about 7 ft by 4 ft.
I wanted to make something that wasnt only dark and horriffic. I  of borrowed a bit from Francis Bacon . I thought to make the monster say something visual and  incongruous. I had a paisley design done there, so thought that a colourful pattern might be a surprising image to have come from the maw of such a monster.
Its a fun piece to be doing and a change from the usual.
Now I have given it a clear coat and will glaze over that to add some depth.
Should be done by tomorrow.
