Phoenix Artwerks/Tattoos Est: 2001

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 28, 2013, 1:19 AM
Facebook l Gallery l dA Portfolio l Watch Me l Note Me

I started Phoenix Tattoos in 2001 when i was 24 years old but I've been tattooing since i was 18 and have been doing art since I was a child   drawing on 1st tattoo by phoenixtattoos
I'm not gunna wank on that I'm a 'Professional tattoo artist' or how good i am, I think my work speaks for itself
I dont go in for tattoo shows or awards either, to be honest i dont really care about what some random person/judge thinks of what i do-
all i care about is firstly what i think about it and if i like it and secondly what the person im tattooing thinks of it
That may sound weird putting myself first but i want to be proud of what i do
I specialize in Biomechanic and Fantasy type stuff but I'm open to doing anything even the gay stuff ie not homosexual but girly stuff, some of that can be quite enjoyable to tattoo
First and foremost i like to, if i can, design and tattoo a really original piece of work, ART not STICKERS

Martins Hand by phoenixtattoos   Blossom tree by phoenixtattoos   Chev2 by phoenixtattoos   Adam1 by phoenixtattoos   reubens arm 1 by phoenixtattoos   Celt Family Tree by phoenixtattoos   Paleman by phoenixtattoos   Zarnas angel by phoenixtattoos   Jacob by phoenixtattoos
Viks Back by phoenixtattoos   Giger Piece by phoenixtattoos   Irenes Back by phoenixtattoos   compass by phoenixtattoos   Trevour 7 by phoenixtattoos     bio eye by phoenixtattoos     tribal maori by phoenixtattoos     Trevour 9 by phoenixtattoos     pretty fairy by phoenixtattoos

I don't have thousands of designs to go though cause i hate that generic sort of stuff, whatever I do, I want to be unique and original
I design  a lot of work on the computer and relish the chance to create something personal for someone
Here are some examples of stuff I've put together on computer in preparation for tattooing
Back 1 by phoenixtattoos   back 3 by phoenixtattoos   Back 2 by phoenixtattoos   Jesus by phoenixtattoos   Viks Arm maybe by phoenixtattoos

I learnt how to airbrush in 2006 and since picking that up my tattooing has improved significantly
Digital:   Voyage to Valhalla 19-3-13 by phoenixtattoos   Broken Glass by phoenixtattoos     The Faith Delusion by phoenixtattoos   Moonchild by phoenixtattoos     208 Coming Home 26-3-13 by phoenixtattoos   Fat of the land by phoenixtattoos   Each Dawn I Die 1-3-13 by phoenixtattoos     187 27-11-12 by phoenixtattoos     The Horned Godess by phoenixtattoos

Airbrush:   Death Dealer 6-10-12a copy by phoenixtattoos   Ran by phoenixtattoos   Die Umarmung 20-10-08 by phoenixtattoos   Moonlapse Vertigo by phoenixtattoos   Bleak 12-3-11 by phoenixtattoos     RNESSA L by phoenixtattoos   The Fear 25-7-09 by phoenixtattoos     Decembers Doom 19-5-09 by phoenixtattoos   Elantrocidal Image by phoenixtattoos

I'm open to doing commissioned artwork for people to, whether it be digital or airbrushed, portraits, landscapes or anything in between
I did this for someone based on a dream they had The Funeral by phoenixtattoos
I think I have a really unique style in my approach and execution of my art, whether on skin, canvas or digital
