Mark is pretty unique as he sketches is design idea, (which he produces based on the inspiration you give him), directly onto your skin, no transfers. I got there at 11am and it took an hour for the sketching process ....

The shading on the Dodo was first... I love the eyes so much, she looks, shy and bashful
|The finished tattoo.....|
All in all it took 8.5 hours.. during which time the main pain was my arse going to sleep! 7.5 of those hours was the actual tattoo, and the last 30 minutes was very painful when he did the shading on the top of the carousel and around the outside of the Dodo, he changed to six needles at this point and they were brutal!
I'm so very happy with it, he is an amazing artist.
