Tattooing Experience With Deano Cook
Entering Deano’s room is like diving into the ocean. From his gallery of art on displayed, to his vast private collection of images captured on his expeditions in the ocean. Deano starts his sessions by picking the brain of his client and usually roughing out a concept design on his client with multiple markers. Once drawn on, Deano turning to his seamlessly endless bank of images to find the right subject in the position depicted in the composition. To transfer the chosen image to skin, Deano makes the stencil by hand, capturing every ounce of detail the photo offers, along with the knowledge that he knows exactly what the subject looks like in the ocean. Deano records every step of the session with photographs at key moments of progress, which will be all passed along to the client also. Every client leaves with not just a great tattoo, but with the memory and progress photos of their session.
