We’re coming to the end of the 2nd week of Jan, the 2nd week of work for 2015, and what a crazy time it has been! The shop has been pumping, with ongoing clients, new starts and loads of walk-ins! We have two amazing guest artists joining our studio for a short time, and our senior apprentice has been busy tattooing herself!! Not to mention some huge PR with the release of our studio feature in Tattoos Down Under, Kian’s column in Inked Australia as well as his coverage of the London 10th anniversary Tattoo Convention, and the King of Tattoo Convention in Tokyo!!!
If the last two weeks are a gauge of what is in store for Authentink Studio, we are all going to be very very busy! And we wouldn’t want it any other way! 🙂
Here are some pics of what we’ve all been up to for the last two weeks!
It’s been a week of sleeve starts for Kian Forreal, with a dragon, koi, phoenix and dragon koi sleeves all being born!
This dragon/koi sleeve client did a massive 12 hours over 2 days to get his full sleeve and chest plate outlined and background half completed in one trip!
We had a visit from Kian’s client who’s affectionately now known as BFK (big fucking koi), who dropped by so we could get a healed shot of his completed back piece!
Kian completed the background on Blair’s phoenix back piece, next session = colour! Can’t wait to see this come to life!
Chipping away at Roel’s warrior back piece, armour was coloured in… its getting there!!!
Seth Arcane has been wowing us and his clients with his finely detailed dot work, fine lines and geometric wonders!
