The Apprentice

I was going to put a tiny dragon head on the cover of the book 🐲 but maybe it should just say “Tattooing Straight Lines For Dummies”
This is my second tattoo on a human. It’s me. I’m the human. & if you look closely you’ll notice I forgot to draw a tiny line that connects the head to the right side of the body lmao 🙃🧀

My first original dragon design after learning how to draw Asian dragons.
🐉
I’m still figuring out line work & line weights so this took me a while to complete. I’ll get faster later. Technique before speed! ✨

Special thanks to @dizzydoan & @tonyhu_chronicink for this one. 🙏🏼

Hey hi hello 😊
I’ve been getting a lot of people asking if I tattoo yet especially after my recent story posts of my collab with @dizzydoan. Sorry guys! I only drew the initial design & Dizzy added his own flare to it & tattooed it on his client.

I’m aware not everyone lives on their phone and sees everything I post, so I thought I would make a regular post on my feed-

The only person I’ve tattooed is myself. I haven’t shared a picture of it yet because I need to go back and outline all the parts where fallout happened because I didn’t want to press too deep because I was in pain… lmao 😮‍💨

I’m only 5 months into my apprenticeship, but rest assured. I will 💯% let y’all know when I do start tattooing. Thank you for your support! ❤️‍🔥

🧩 Some of my puzzle pieces to creating a dragon tattoo. These were from watching @tonyhu_chronicink’s Ink Workshop 🐉 ...

🦁 Oh I just can’t wait to be king! 🎶

This is some fake skin I tattooed today.
I tried my best to wipe the ink off...
Not perfect, but I’m posting this as a reminder of the day I feel I learned how to not ride the tube. 😂 🪡

Medusa sculpture drawing 🐍

I’m trying to learn how to turn up contrast in my drawings. I don’t normally draw like this because I’m used to drawing & painting more realistically, & there isn’t high contrast in real life unless you have the right lighting. ☀️ I tried 😬

Silly free hand things. This is the second time I got to use a tattoo machine.

Thank you @dizzydoan for letting me borrow your machine & station 😄

I would like to paint more portraits! 🎨
Here is an oil painting I made commissioned for a gift for @steffsterrr from @rhinotheplug of their son 🎁

✨ I just got home from my first day as a tattoo apprentice. ✨

I was going to wait to talk about this, but there really isn’t a point in waiting & @jarjar_inks told me I have to post assignment updates in my stories so you all would have figured it out anyway. Haha

I guess.. save some room on your bods for me. 🤍🩸

P.s. Sorry if it bugs any of you that my name isn’t capitalized 😂
