Mr. Sincero - Tattoo Artist

Here's a portrait of Sincero, owner of Ink Creations Tattoo Studio in Quebradillas Puerto Rico. Again, it was fun and a challenge drawing Sincero. He wanted me to add his hands and the tattoo tool. I understand, he's a artist and want show his medium, but for me it makes it more complicated and more time. it's like creating three drawings, the face and the hands with tool and of course the tattoos on the hands. Sincero did a great job sitting still and this was the result.

Sincero had this piece nicely framed and hangs in the shop. Thank you Ink Studio Creations, it's an honer.

Tattoo Artist Portrait Drawing

I haven't posted on my blog in a while, feels good to share some new work. In my home town of Quebradillas, Puerto Rico there's a tattoo shop. I walked in and asked the tattoo artist if I can do a portrait sketch of them and they were interested. Here are two portraits i really liked, it was fun drawing this person. I like all the detail of the piercings, the glasses, the goatee, and the tattoo gun. it just adds more depth to piece. It also helped that the tattoo artist stood still.

I've been wanting to draw in a tattoo shop, I don't know why i took so long to ask, they are artist and customers come in with an appreciation for tattoo art so i discovered it's a perfect environments for drawing portraits. I've sketched a lot of portraits at this shop of customers. There's a lot of cool interesting characters that visit this tattoo shops. I'll post more soon.
