This year, Mez Love (who was my mentor) and I (Deanna Wardin) did our first ever collaboration. She specializes in portraiture and realism tattoos, where as I specialize in the more graphic, abstract or watercolor tattoos.
This was such a blast, and on a super tough and super rad dude!
We both want to do more projects like this, I am even leaving a few spots this year open for such things.. so if you are interested, hit us up!
We do require a few things for a piece to be successful:
Have part of the tattoo based off of a photograph, preferably a portrait, but animals, flowers, objects, ect, can work.
Be in an area that is fairly large, so we properly use all of the techniques to illustrate both styles.
Be flexible with the design. The whole point in collaborating is to step outside of our comfort zones, experiment a little bit, and make things we couldn't have made on our own, by highlighting each of our strengths.
If you would be interested in a collaboration, please send a email to both email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
