Some of my favorite blog posts and videos document the creative process of large-scale tattoo projects by stellar tattooists, offering insight into the way an artist works as well as seeing a collector's body transform into awesomeness. One project I've enjoyed recently is Luke Holley's video series on a backpiece created by Darcy Nutt of Chalice Tattoo in Boise, Idaho.

In November, we posted Luke's video of the tattoo first session on Darcy's client Graham. Since that time, Luke has filmed all 12 sessions, which are available for viewing on his Vimeo page. For those with attention deficit disorder, Luke has also created a video that shows the whole transformation under four minutes, which we've posted below.

To check more of Darcy's work, head to her Facebook page and on the Chalice Tattoo site.

In Boise, Idaho, Darcy Nutt of Chalice Tattoo has a loyal clientele, who trust her for large scale work -- in almost all tattoo genres --  as well as for smaller personal tributes. But it's the process of composing the big work that's particularly interesting to watch, and thanks to Luke Holley, we can. Luke has been documenting each session of a large-scale backpiece Darcy is creating and sharing those videos on Vimeo.

Here's the first session below, where you can see Darcy work, from stencil to tattooing.

There are five videos so far following the progression of this work. The last one, which was posted two days ago, shows how just how beautiful the East Asian iconography is coming together on one very happy, and tough, client.

In addition to the videos, you can see more of Darcy's work on Facebook and on the Chalice Tattoo site.
