So that tat is coming along nicely! I finished the shading this past Friday.
The red is not color but irritation from the needle. That will eventually fade into gray shading. The bands are now officially done. Next on the agenda is color! And I still haven’t ironed’em out yet. I leaning heavily toward blue and red in the big one but haven’t decided the two smaller ones. I’m thinking of green for sure but the rest is a guess at the moment. Yellow and orange are not my favorite colors and they don’t really show up well in tattoos. Purple is an idea but it tends to be very dark and blends too much with black. You can see from my back tattoo (below) the dangers of putting like colors too close together.
Basically, I want the colors to really stand out. Luke suggested I get some magic markers and play around with colors until I find what I like. A good idea. Of course, there are also shades of colors vs primaries too. I could do shades of blue and red on each one. The wheels are turning…suggestions?
Ok, I couldn’t help showing off one more pic. I totally love it! The idea of what I wanted is slowly coming to life and I can’t wait for the final product. I have a sneaky suspicion I’ll be adding more to it though. The inside shoulder looks a tad bare and begs for either another strand or something to compliment the strand look. The inside I’m not overly worried about as you almost never see it (and it hurts like a bitch to ink).
So whaddya think?
