Sketching out and adding the first shading to the Maori tattoo

Today we began putting the Pacific Islands design created by Tiki O’Brien down on the pier! It’s going to be 18’x24′, and truly momentous.

We got all the shapes sketched out and even began inking it in! A great day and great weather to be out there. After several eveningsĀ had turned out to be too blustery and breezy for our space-age projector setup, Dan and I decided to just go at it the old-fashioned way, and laid out the whole design with chalk on a grid. And it went great! When technology fails to deliver, it’s nice to have badass punk rock DIY to fall back on šŸ™‚
