Religious October 22nd - 31st

Day 295. Virgin Mary tattoo design. Copied from reference, got the face better I felt not so great on the hands.

Day 296. Sacred Heart and Roses tattoo design. Good usuable tattoo style design.

Day 297. Face of Jesus Christ. From reference, not great - not terrible.

Day 298. Face of Jesus Christ 2. From reference, not great - not terrible.

Day 299. Skeleton virgin Mary with anatomical heart. I would really like to get to tattoo this on somebody.

Day 300. I don't know, don't ask me. Had a drawing block and a busy day.

Day 301. Hamsa hand tattoo design.

Day 302. Ganesh tattoo design. Based on a few different reference photos.

Day 303. The Christ Child. Based on the painting 'The Light of the World' by Frederic James Shields.

Day 304. Satanic Goat tattoo design. Did a more fun evil design today for Halloween and to celebrate getting to the end of the month.

Religious October 15th - 21st

Day 288. Buddha with Lotus flower tattoo design.

Day 289. Starving Buddha design.

Day 290. Big Buddha tattoo design. Had a good three days doing these buddha designs.

Day 291. Cherubs. A bit of a failed effort at some cherubs, I really did not get the facial proportitions right at all.

Day 292. Cross with wings and a banner tattoo design. Had a busy day so just knocked this up quick.

Day 293. Kneeling Angel design. Used a reference photo of a model for the pose and just added some wings.

Day 294 Crucifix, sacred heart, rosary beads with clouds and sunbursts tattoo design. How much more could I have added? Guaranteed tattoo sale right there!

Religious October 8th - 14th

Day 281. Jesus skull tattoo design. I felt like doing something a little less holy looking so went with this praying skull with rosary beads.

Day 282. Dove of peace design. This is pretty much the exact same as a dove I drew during Birds month, I didnt realise until afterwards, but it is a very common design to fill out religious sleeves, so I don't really blame myself.

Day 283. Baby Krishna. This is copied from reference a customer brought in for a tattoo, but slightly changed.

Day 284. Stone Cross tattoo design. Straightforward cross design, simple but effective symbol for a tattoo.

Day 285. Praying hands with rosary beads tattoo design. Praying hands again, a bit simpler this time but with added rosary beads and sun rays.

Day 286. Heart with angel wings and crown design. This would make a good tattoo with some type of quote or names in the banner.

Day 287. Virgin Mary tattoo design. Drawn without reference, I really do need to work on my portrait skills, and this is all part of that practice. But in reality for a tattoo I would usually trace from reference.

Religious October 1st - 7th

Day 274. Praying Hands, pretty much a blatant copy from Albrecht Durer's hands sketch, a very popular tattoo design.

Day 275. Angel with outstretched arms tattoo design. Protect Me Guide Me in a banner.

Day 276.Two Cherubs placing a halo onto Christ's head. Could make a good tattoo design with a lot of redrawing of features.

Day 277. Jesus Christ. Head of Jesus if he was a long faced stoner, it looked ok when I was sketching and then it came out with a long horse face, think I'll have another go at this later this month.

Day 278. Virgin Mary tattoo sketch. I'm a lot happier with this facial sketch rather than the Jesus one. Hopefully as they say 'Practice makes Perfect', more work needed on my faces.

Day 279. Rose, candle, rosary beads combo. Would be a fun little tattoo.

Day 280. Sacred Heart tattoo design. Now this is definitely made for tattooing.


Octobers theme is going to be Religious images probably lots of crosses and clouds and the like.

All very popular themes at the moment. It should be a good month with plenty for me to have a go at.

Heres to Octobers sketches.
