I recently finished this portrait of the talented tattoo artist Keith McCurdy (Bang Bang).
He’s a New York based tattooist and has created some of the amazing works that adore the bodies of the likes of Rihanna, Rita Ora, Katy Perry, Cara Delevingne and Justin Bieber, among other stars.

Bang Bang

Acrylic, newsprint, gold/silver leaf on canvas.
89 x 116 cm

Started working on Bang Bangs Tiger tattoo on his hand.

The basic colours of the Tiger completed.Onto Bang Bangs portrait and his heavily tattooed hands, arm sleeve. Very challenging indeed!!

Almost there, applied the gold/silver leaf to his neck chain and tattoo gun. Finally the background graffiti and a few extra news headline to include. Happy days!!
