Comic Con Call-Out 2018

….How has it been a week since Comic Con already?! 😱

Thanks so much to those of you who supported me during my first big event – I had a blast~ 😄 If you wanted to have a chat but I was on a break or talking to someone else for a while, please get in touch: info@naohoa.com. I’d love to hear from you!

Going by Zan’s notes from when I was away, here’s a call-out to some peeps:

  • Simon (Kylo Ren cosplay) who’s after a chest piece.
  • Andy from one of the stalls selling figurines who’s wants a coverup.
  • Marines dude who has or wanted a dragon? Think I may have spoken to you eventually but not sure.

I appreciate that conversations lasted 5-20mins per person at times and you wanted to experience the event more, so if you were patiently waiting (or too shy to approach me on the day), please do get in touch – I don’t bite. 🙂

PM/email is best as they’re easier for me to catch up with and I don’t answer calls when I’m with clients or outside of Opening Hours (11am-6pm, Mon-Sat). We can always arrange a timeslot over the phone if you prefer to chat before booking a consultation.

 

Let’s Chat! 😄

What Else I got Up To

NAOHOA Luxury Bespoke Tattoos at Cardiff Comic Con, selling Sugarskull Cubone and Geo Swan Art Prints by Naomi Hoang.Besides chatting to people about what I do here at NAOHOA, I was also selling and signing art

prints. Sugarskull Cubone and Geo Swan are currently available, with Ghibli Tribute on the way (available for pre-order).

…..Also, yes, that’s a Pokéball next to a NAOHOA ball. 😀 My friend Simon rendered it for me when I was obsessed with Pokémon GO and wanted to do some themed prints/tattoos.

I also had a really lovely time getting to know some of the stall-owners, such as Gwen Davies, who let me have a go at henna for the first time (and sells gorgeous earrings!).

Overall, it was a fab weekend. I was pretty anxious leading up to it, but people were super lovely and it was completely worth doing. Now to sign up for more~ 😘

 

Thanks for reading!

Ghibli Tribute

Any Ghibli fans here? 😀 This is something I started with the intention of selling at the Film & Comic Convention (Cardiff), but it ended up being quite detailed and I wanted to spend more time on it.

Here’s how it’s looking so far:

Can you spot which films are referenced?

I’ll post updates on here, but if you wanna see them live, best follow my Stories on Instagram! (@naohoa)

Until next time. ^_^

#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. 🙂

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

– Jen E.

 


#NAOHOAstory…Mighty

This client wanted to have the Chinese version of his name with an energetic brush stroke on his back. 🙂 His name means a mixture of powerful/mighty/strong/brave…all that Jazz!

Testimonial

Had my 3rd Tattoo done by Naomi. She did a fantastic job what I wanted. She very different compare to the other tattoo palours I been in the past in a very good way. Her studio is very clean, well presented and welcoming.

Naomi is very nice lady, very professional, very patience to her clients. She has good future ahead of her. She gives very clear instructions of the aftercare of the tattoos also she gives nice thank you pack with clear instructions of the aftercare to which is very kindly of her.

No doubt I will be returning for future tattoos and highly recommend for someone to have first tattoo with her.

Octopus Sleeve

I’m currently working on a full sleeve tattoo, with an octopus as its main feature. It’s in a contemporary Japanese art style and we worked together a lot to get it just right. 🙂 Click on the Instagram posts to watch the videos.

Pokémon GO Tattoos

NAOHOA-branded ball next to a Pokéball

Designed by Naomi Hoang, executed by Simon Vickers.

Hey all,

Is anyone else obsessed with this game?! I grew up with Pokémon and worked in gaming so you may know that I’m pretty into GO – especially if you’ve been following my personal account on Twitter.

Initial Designs

Many moons ago, I re-designed some members of my original team from the Blue days and honestly, it would be a blast to do something like this again.

 

What’s your favourite Pokémon?

Would you want to get it tattooed? Or simply have an original sketch/digital print of your own? Email me at info [at] naohoa.com if you’re interested in having a bespoke Pokémon illustration/tattoo of your own in an art style you prefer.

 

Rapidash Re-design. My go-to art style when painting is realistic, but I’m not restricted to this.

Interested?

Follow me on social media to see updates on new designs!

Prices will vary depending on what you’d like, so let’s start a conversation and take it from there. 🙂

I’ll be posting updates of my own designs as I go along, which will be made available to clients. Once chosen, they will be taken off the market, so nobody from NAOHOA will have the same tattoo as you!

Kind regards,
Naomi xxx
