 His backside (still work in progress), a design heavily influenced by Marquesan traditional tattoos.....and, NO, it s not a cover up......

 ....As you can see on the pictures pf the session, wich was very cool, due to Rose & Tommi, who did the heroic part of stretching the skin for 15 (!) hours, very funny!!!!
The tools, I tried to built an european equivalent to the pacific tools, so the fitting method of the needles is taken from axes wich date back to stone and bronze age. I had to search a branch, that was grown in the shape I needed and carve it carefully before attaching the needles to it.
Worked perfectly, as you can course for single use only.
