For years I trialed and refined the methods but not with great success until finding a strong relationship between Pencil & Artistic Sealer, and from this Tinct (formally known as Double Bass Tattoo) was born 9 May 2011.
Utilizing my artistic talents through the process of preparing the selected musical instrument (Guitar, Double Bass, Violin, Banjo, Ukulele or Drum), applying pencil detail to it, artistic sealer then clear coat to seal, producing depth, definition and a lifetime of unique imagery.
These Pencil Tattoos are applied to previously lacquered finishes or raw timber. The method of mixing both of the artistic & chemically proven features of these tools of Pencil Tattooing produce an amazing result that cannot be matched by any other previously used method.
