Commission | Size; A5 | Created in 2016
The design features a 2 birds, roses & geometric shapes.
Symbolism | It was created as a 3rd wedding anniversary gift (which is leather)
This design was commissioned & completed within 3 weeks.
The design begins as a rough sketch, which is approved by the client.
The line art is traced onto the leather. The tattooed lines are then built up in layers from thin to thick , with a tattoo machine & a single needle. Thus it is highly labour intensive.
The line-work is bought out by tooling the leather.
The leather surface is smoothed & burnished.
It is framed in a hand made frame created by us, in Oak. T
Here is some of the artwork detail
Here are some images which illustrate the front & rear.
