African Comedy and Tragedy

1 Aug

Here’s a slightly different take on a classic tattoo design. When my client asked me to do these, of course at first I hemmed and hawed at doing yet another comedy an tragedy tattoo, even if this is a lot different than any I have ever been asked to do before. The irony is that we did them the night the Travon Martin verdict came in, these masked reflect my feelings that night, happy I got to do something different but obviously upset about the verdict .

I did this Mursi tribal woman piece after my apprentice Carlos Wilson did the continent a lil while back. My client asked me to incorporate the Aya and Akoben Adinkra symbols with the Cowrie shell. The goal was to create a Afrocentric qtr sleeve that would last, with some realism thrown in. This was a lot of fun on many levels, I look forward to developing this style. This picture is of a totally healed tattoo for what it’s worth.

Proud Lion Tribal

18 May

Ok, I’m a baaaaaaad blogger! I could go into this whole I’m “old school” and don’t use computers BS, truth is I’m a lazy as fuck when it comes to all this social networking! So, there it is judge away. Now, to the blogging, did this last night on a local scholar/writer. When he first approached me about this we went through all the motions. He was unsure of what he wanted and how he wanted it. But luckily he was patient and open to new and fresh ideas. I don’t mind doing tribal, but I enjoying doing tribal that is a more socially conscious, for a lack of a better term. Anyway this is what we came up with.
