27/10/2015 – The first..
26/01/2016 – The second..
I was running late both sessions as they started while I was still at work. Sadly, I didn’t take a lot of photos during the first session as I was on shift that day. Juggling work phone calls and photo documentation is not a good combination and I had a lack of concentration and felt rushed.. The second part of the photo essay is therefore a stronger body of work. I, however, felt I should include some photos taken during the first session to show both inking days.
The essay doesn’t include all the pre-tattooing talks and the designing process between Rune and Elisabeth, but I can assure you that this was not an overnight decision. There were a lot of back-and-forths and deliberations on the sketches until all parties agreed that it would look as nice as Rune (and I) had envisioned.
