Single Needle Tattoo by Maarten Emily

Sailortattoo for a young local fisherman.
The clipper sailingship on the high seas represents a symbol of freedom & adventure and the determination to be homeward bound.

The face of the  beautiful lady represents looking forward of what awaits at home.                          The lighthouse  illuminates the dark sky. The map and compass, and also the lighthouse mark the importance of having strong guidance in life.

Single Needle tattoo by Maarten Emily

All done Single needle tattoo  like it says al is done with 1 single needle. No shaders, mags or other large groups of needles , Single needle black and gray the original and only way to create that Smooth and Soft stipple shading wich is needed to get that real authentic street look.
