Climbing Mount Everett
Every so often I do tattoos that I truly want to do free of charge just to break up my game face and throw a spanner into my work schedule that will be a investment in the long run. So my Muse for this project was none other that Gentle Giant and truly nice guy Harley Everett. That dude makes me feel like a munchkin hit by a shrinking ray, as he is so tall. Well I act tall. A client had put him in contact with me and told him my plan and rather than stick any old thing on him he gave me brief. I went to the drawing table and tried to come up with a design that both he and I would love.
I am sure some of you have seen Harley in action and seen some of his films. He's developed a name for himself in the field of adult films, and most people get adult entertainers and performers all wrong. He is well spoken and a bit on the shy side, which is a relief. I was really taken aback by how free and honest he was in sharing his upbringing with me a testament to his true nature and character as a genuine person. So as you can see there will be a fair bit of wark to do on this project and I will keep you all posted on the progress as Harley stand around 6'4 and the design will virtually take his whole upper thigh to the knee.
We have started a 3 1/2 hours so far and have several sessions to go so stay tuned.
