I think it is important to mention

Most of these tattoos were drawn directly on the skin. That may come as a surprise, but after years of studying the human form, and drawing large scale tattoos that are made to fit the body. It has become easier and more practical for me to draw this way. I get no inspiration from a blank piece of paper. But when I see the curves, muscles, and flow of the body, the image is instant. I truly believe that while creating directly on the skin, it invites creativity and allows a tattoo to look natural.
