I don't know which is more amazing: the idea of a 3d tattooed leather artwork, or the artwork itself. As I like to say the idea of beauty today is the beauty of an idea. This work is both beauty and idea! Thanks for showing me something new!
Men, amazing Skull is amazing. Really loved the details on that skull, specially the teeths and the aveolar process (Oh hell, not sure if that's the correct term I just checked it on google, english is not my thing)
ah thanks, yes all done with mostly one needle in a regular machine with same ink.... its totally different .... it a little too hard to explain as each one if different depending on the the leather denseness, i do each one to suit and never use the same settings twice/ with leather you get lots of needle bounces and jumps as it bounce back off the leather/breaks/drag/hard to 'cut through' / ink bleeds out/ hard to get a smooth line/ also makes a mess of your leather when spraying/smudging so have ruined lots of work at the last stage... needs lots of patience, going through skin is much much smoother in comparison (in my limited experience)
Finding it hard to keep up with the 'thanks' for the brilliant comments (#astounded!), so apologies if i don't say thanks individually -straight away. So chuffed you like it, so a major thanks to one and all. Have a look at my other stuff or i have a website www.puncturedartefact.com
