Methodology

Black Lining

I’ve been collaborating remotely with Black Lining; a team of designers who work with wood and laser-cutting. The team focuses on artworks generated by Tattoo Artists, giving the work a new medium to explore.

We agreed on furthering this one, as it seamlessly fit the technical criteria of production (connected lines). I’m very excited about how the prototype turned out. The team is hoping to release these in the next few months! I’m still under the process of experimenting with transforming my drawings into other mediums ~ I’m hoping this experience may provide some insight into different modalities of such translations.

3 - 5 - 9

I worked on two tattoos back-to-back today. I’ve finally adapted to needle sizes, and thinking ahead of which needles might achieve a better outcome of the strokes i’m looking for. My methodology so far is to start small. 3 Round Liners are very hard to use, the needle is very small, so your hand needs to be steady. I felt confident lining the entire stencil with 3s, moving into 5s for medium-sized sharp fills and my favourite 9s for massive fills. Working this way has seemed to sharpen my designs, making the little details stand out more. I used to work in reverse ~
