this is the second prototype pigment protector i made for a tattoo artist/ friend of mine. i think it came out great! it is much simpler than the first version. solid brass hardware and rivets. hand tooled logo at bottom. machine sewn border and burnished edges.
made a points cover out of some copper sheet laying around at work. cut it to size, beat it with a ball peen hammer on the backside. flipped it over, pressed it flat. then i put it in a bowl of vinegar and salt for a few minutes. pulled it out, let it dry, then buffed out the high spots. repeat like 3 more times, drill holes for mounting- done. i think it looks good, too bad there are no actual points in there.

i found this concrete thing by my house. took some threaded rod from work. hammered a piece of wood i had with screws and bolts and then stained said piece of wood. welded a plate to the rod and mounted it to the wood. put the rod down in the hole of the concrete- done

this is a dental kit for some dentists tools that one friend had purchased to give to another friend. he had the idea to put it all in a nice case for her. no tooling, but hand sewn and hand dyed.i think it came out really nice

heres some pics of the pigment protector prototype(fancy one leg apron) i am working on for my friends over at analog tattoo. this will help keep some of the ink off their legs while they tattoo siick tattoos. one of a kind. you will not see another one like it. hand tooled logo, hand sewn everything, brass hardware with aged patina, and adjustable straps that hook onto the belt loops or belt of your choice. many hours were put into this and im glad that these guys appreciate my work. v2.0 coming up later

i made some of these thingys to put on your belt to clip your keys to. a couple are basic, one sided, no sewing. a couple have liners hand sewed inside them made of recycled leather jacket material. the other two are lined with the same leather used to make the outside and hand sewn inside. the ones with liners are more durable than the unsewn ones.
