Miya Bailey & Tuki Carter "Chest Tattoo"

This is the first real project both me & Tuki are working on together..... I did the "moon" and Tuki did the "sun" since me and him have worked together for over 15 years together it's easy for us to flow off each others style... We will be adding to her arms next... Stay tuned

"Koi Fish" Half sleeve tattoo

Step: One... Draw directly on the skin with the markers... Follow the shape of the arm.. Let the curves guide you.. Do not over think art... Use your natural born art instinct

I love doing Japanese inspired body art...since I'm not Japanese I have to add my own twist to it so it still looks like a MB original...I really enjoyed this one
