The New Book

Its been a long time since I have kept a regular update schedule on this page…. expect more posts and updates in the near future – thank you for staying interested in what I do. For the past two years I have been working on a series of over 1000 patterns for a ‘Book of Patterns’ as that project nears completion I wanted to use this new smaller a book as a prologue to that project.

I am very happy to announce the publication of a new book of lines, this one is named after my website ‘Meditations in Atrament’
its smaller in size than the book of lines but is packed just as full with patterns and shapes that I use daily in my work. Over 100 pages of mandalas and repeating patterns.

Tattooing By Thomas Hooper

This is a short film intended as an experiment on how to show my work in an alternative form. It is so hard to catch the beauty of a tattoo on a person’s body with out standing right next to them, so I decided to try and make a short piece concentrating on the depth and texture of my work.
This is not a professional attempt by any means, hopefully it is a starting point for me to create something better.
thank you for looking.

I didn’t post much on here the last half of 2012, this was partly due to the popularity of Instagram.
Above is a montage of some of my posts on my @thomashoopertattooing account. I’m making an effort to take my camera to work more this year and document my work in progress to publish here on wordpress. But to follow my work in the format of bad iPhone pictures please go to my Instagram.

Thank you. And have a great day.

Starting off going backwards.

This Tattoo is by no means new, i think it is about 4 years old. An attempt at a representation of a phoenix as if they existed in Haida mythology with my own twist on it…. I love the simple graphic nature of it, with its subtle detail giving it a little bit of depth. I’m going to be posting some of my early work from the beginning of my career and more recent in an effort to take a step back into larger, simpler and stronger forms (but still with headache rendering repetitive overly detailed textures). Thank you.

From beyond into Eternity, 2013 begins.

Happy New Year everyone. I want to first say a sincere thank you to all the people who have supported me through the last year and my whole career. No matter if it is through visiting this website or my instagram, buying a t shirt, book, print, painting, getting tattooed, offering friendship or advice and most importantly thank you to my family, I truly appreciate everything. It is not by luck or chance I am able to do what I can, it is through support and encouragement that I am able to work so hard.

Here are a few bits from last year, finished and in progress. Enjoy.

 

Good luck in 2013.
