A client asked if I could paint some russian style prison tattoos on a mannequin he was going to use for display. Sounded like a fun job, so I said yes. He gave me a book to look for inspiration, and I found some stuff online as well. Mixed in a bit of old school from some tattoo flash books I have.

To accomodate the budget I painted it all with Molotov markers. Painting it with a brush would be possible, but it would take much longer. It took me around 12 hours to do the whole thing with the markers.
