Tat-a-long

You know eventually I'm going to run out of cute ways to include "tattoo" in my post titles, but until then just play along. Okay?

Last week S went to have some more work done on his latest tattoo...



It's a cover up of an older, much smaller dragon that is better suited to go with the shiny new gargoyle he got in November.



During this session, Tattoo Guy mainly focused on the background...note the dark & ominous clouds and the continuation of the "sky" from the gargoyle piece.




Tattoo Guy did start to put some of the color in the tail of the dragon too, but I think that was just to get an idea of how the greens would work with everything else since S choose green.

Specifically he wanted the same green as what is in the gargoyle's "frame".




I think it looks friggin' awesome.

It does look pretty awesome, but it looks painful too. I don't think I could sit still enough to have a tattoo.

CaraBee said...

That looks awesome! I have always wanted to get a tattoo but I just can't decide what I want. Plus, there's the whole pain thing. And the money.
