alright so I'm branching out from the old school tattoo stuff, but I can't completely let it go, tell me what you think!

my dad had sheets that remind me of this design, oh so 70s:



japanese chrysanthemums (omg so fun & purty)


leopard print (is really really really fun)


I've got some really boring grey Nike Dunks that I'm thinking of painting leopard & pink, I dunno I'm debating...

this image is based on some vintage sailor jerry flash I found lying around the shop


aaaaaand more japanese flowers (I like 'em!)


a custom ordered birdy purse


thar she blows! any input is much appreciated!

What great purses!!
Are these just painted with acrylic paints? Are they sealed with anything?
Nice work Cheesy

thank you thank you!! I used acrylic on some of them, sealed with clear gloss triple thick glaze & some of them were painted with One Shot, I'm trying to decide which I like more, and some of the surfaces react differently so it's kind of a purse-by-purse decision, too. The One Shot paint will peel right off the slicker purses but the acrylic and glaze seem to stick just fine.

thanks so much for your kind words!

thanks! you'd be amazed how blurry the line is between 'talent' and 'obsessive compulsive', and by that I mean OCD is usually conveniently disguised as talent  Wink

Beautiful work.

I can't see the leopard print one but you should definitely paint those Nike Dunks judging by the quality of your other work.
