At the moment I'm working on a special tattoo. A girl from the Chatham Islands (a small island on the eastside of New Zealand) wanted a tattoo in the shape of her island, but then in an abstract maori inspired style.
This is google map of the place:
First I made a few quick images to see if she liked the idea of a tattoo pattern masked by the shape of the island:
Unfortunately this was not exactly what she was looking for.
The tattoo had to be loosely based on the shape of the island, with a maori pattern to it.
The size had to be something like 10 x 12 cm, so quite small.
I made a new pencil sketch and sent it to my client:
I just sent it today, so hopefully I can get back to you tomorrow with a final design.
Best wishes, Mark Storm
