A little more to go!

This lovely clients first tattoo – and a beautifully peaceful one at that!  She’s a strong young lady who’s overcome obstacles and is finding her own strength in life.  This is a very fitting piece for her.

On a side note, I can’t stop humming “Aqueous Transmission” when I look at this piece…  the mood, the imagery, everything reminds me of this song:


a beautiful backpiece is a *seriously* impressive tattoo to have.  in terms of time, commitment, and PATiENCE, a backpiece is NO JOKE.

i’ve had people make inquiries regarding possible backpieces, go thru the drawing/design process, and flip out when they hear that the outline alone with take 5 or more hours… lol, i guess they’ve been watching too much ‘LA Ink’ where full backs are done in 20 mins. hahahahhaha!!! :’D

here’s an approximate timeline to walk those of you who are thinking about owning an awesome backpiece:

about 4.5 hours - just the outline

another 7 hours or so - shading

another approx. 5 hours - color color color

and we’re not done yet.

there’s still more of this to go:

it helps to be able to SiT & have an artist w/a LiGHT HAND as well!
