I’m making this skull for my great nephew.
He is a tattoo artist , with tattoo’s all over his arms.
He offered a tattoo in exchange, I told him
I’m 77 and would bruise with every poke.

Yesterday I setup and ruffed.
I’ll post the results later today, no matter what happens.

It’s only a hobby

Nope, didn’t like the finish, so I’m
cutting another .003 off with a 1/4 ball and .01 step over.

Finished on the mill.
Now, take it off and give it a swindle finish

I like it, great work.

With a hole in the bottom and an LED stuffed in it could make a neat lamp.....

This is one of my methods for finishing a
3-D model
First I would slice off sections of the model needed for soft jaws.
I cut from 1/8 to 1/4 deep depending on the model.
Cut those surface sections into each jaw, that gives
an accurate fit in any position you choose to cut.

So, have you chosen a design yet for your tattoo? :p

If I go with a transfer tattoo, I would need to
shave an arm or leg, and I’m not that kind
of guy.

I am 25 years your junior but share your sentiment when it comes to a tatoo; I've got plenty of scars from a lifetime of doing stuff, why would I ever want to add more tiny holes or discoloration?
