Gina McQuen is a wonderful artist that we have found who specialises in painting Japanese inspired art work and tattoos. We recently commissioned her to create an Irezumi dragon tattoo print exclusively for us. Gina took our ideas and created an amazing and unique piece. You can see below how she built and created the work.
Once Gina had completed the fantastic painting, our work began. We edited and manipulated the print by reducing the scale and changing the colour to create both a khaki and sepia version that you can see above. Both colour ways are from the original painting, but once edited they create two very different and amazing looks.
Hand Painted Leather Designs
Despite not actually tattooing skin, Gina paints her intricate tattoo inspired designs on items such as, leather sofas, Jackets, satchels and chairs, as well as painting her own artworks. Have a look at some more examples of her work below, and her works-in-progress over on her Instagram
