INDONESIAN SLEEVES

Ade has been working on three Indonesian inspired sleeves for three great guys. In the first photo you can see a sleeve with elements of the traditional Indonesian Wayang shadow puppets play. On the lower arm you can see the Gunungan, the opener of the Wayang shadow puppets play. On the top of the arm there’s an Javanese mask, used during traditional celebrations and ceremony’s. And around it you can see ornaments inspired by Balinese stone-carvings and waves.

In the second photo you can see a sleeve which is also inspired by traditional Indonesian images. On top of the arm you can see the all known symbol of Indonesia, the head of the Garuda bird. Also combined with ornaments and flowers which are based on Balinese stone carvings and clothing patterns. And the sleeve is closed with a Batik Parang pattern (This sleeve is still in progress).

In the third photo you see a sleeve which is influenced by the wave pattern you can find in all the Indonesian passports, with as a background the pattern of the Flower of Life. And on the lower part of the arm you see an ornament which is mostly seen in Batik Ceplok patterns. (The circle in the middle is an ‘imperfect circle’ and not done by Ade).

TATTOO CONVENTION ROTTERDAM

 

 

This weekend we joined the Tattoo Convention in Rotterdam, Ahoy. It was fantastic! The vibe was amazing and we had great talks! Thanks for all the people who came by our booth!

The first day Ade finished the armpiece of Bram. The tattoo will be extended later to a full sleeve. Thanks Bram for your support! The second day Ade made two lotusses on the back of the neck of Thomas and his fiancé Bibi. It was a big succes and I want to give special thanks to Andy Bonzai for organising this awesome convention!

Ade also made a cute lotus on the foot of Annemaar and continued the tattoo of Esther who has a similar tattoo together with her brother Eric.
