The surface is decorated by tattooing onto it, with a tattoo gun and 1 needle. The line work is defined with tools and stamps. Many of the designs are further enhanced by 'repousse' which makes them 3d in appearance. The edges are hand dyed and burnished and the leather treated with finishing products and buffed. The designs often have visible decorative hand stitching to decorate or fix into place.

If you like a design but would like it as a picture (with mount) or would like to change your design to a hoop or little leather veneer, just ask! All pieces are limited editions (with certificate) I also can also create a custom tattoo design just for you ( I use original artwork for all designs, no clip art, photoshopping!) . I create larger scale artwork @ www.puncturedartefact.com.
