#NAOHOAstory…Out With the Old, In With the New

This gent first got his tattoos over 3 decades ago and, after seeing body art that’s available nowadays, wanted an upgrade!


(1/3) This client has tattoos from 35 years ago! Seeing all the shiny artwork that’s out these days, he approached NAOHOA to cover up a piece from his teen years. ๐Ÿย #NAOHOAstoryโ €โ €โ €โ €
(2/3) For this coverup, I needed the original tattoo lightened to make my job easier in the next sesh. Here is a before and after shot (healed) to show how much it faded after applying skin-tone ink….you can see the difference under the same lighting in the second pic, where he compares the two old tattoos!ย #NAOHOAstory

#NAOHOAstory…Always With Me

(1/3) I met this lovely lady whilst buying a coffee! She’d always wanted a tattoo in memory of her mother but didn’t feel comfortable in having it until we met…#NAOHOAstoryโ €

#NAOHOAstory…Henna Om

This client came all the way from Birmingham for a tattoo she’d wanted for about 3 years. Being her first taste of ink, she wisely opted for the Temporary Tattoo Package, allowing her to try on her design in two different colours (black and brown). There was quite a lot of traffic on the way down and she had to leave early to head towards Portsmouth, but we managed to get the bulk of it done! Whenever she’s ready next, we’ll neaten it up with a thicker outline around the outside. ๐Ÿ™‚

(5/5) This is as finished as I’ll get for a long while, as she’s since moved to Canada! ๐Ÿ Still need to do a thicker outline around the whole thing to tidy it up, but well sat nonetheless for her first tattoo. ๐Ÿ˜Š #NAOHOAstory .

 

Testimonial:

“Naomi is an exceptional tattoo artist and highly skilled. I choose to get my first tattoo with Naomi because the studio was very welcoming, extremely clean and well organised. While I was there, Naomi made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I will definitely be going back there in the future.”
