2 — Suddenly I Heard A Tapping

A nice easy shot today as I spent 6 hours in a chair being stabbed thousands of times by Mitch. No really, I did — he started my comic book inspired Crow sleeve. My second piece by him, he did my leg too, so stoked off his work. I just wanted to grab a nice it in progress, of the tattoo, &ampl I didn’t wanna lug a huge amount of gear so I used my Westcott 43 inch Collapsible Umbrella, which is rad because it collapses to half size and fits in my bag, a light stand & my tripod. Simples. Check the super shaky video for more details. Also if you have Instagram you can find me on there with a bunch more photos of the tattoo.
