FREEHAND – Dragon + Phoenix

i apprenticed under a tattooer who was a master at the traditional asian style of tattooing — til this day traditional asian tattoos remain some of my favorite pieces/styles to do. and of course, anyone who knows anything about asian art knows that dragons + phoenixes go HAND in HAND.

here are a few examples of my recent freehand asian work.

first up, DRAGON:

as you can see this is our 2nd session. during our first session i created the dragon head with some finger waves around it. he then came back for the background/surrounding elements.
