Default Back Piece Idea

Hi

I have been toying for a long time now of getting a backpiece done. The design will be from this sculpture although I will likely have the positioning of the tiger modfied.

I think there is something in the way the artist has captured the dragon.

Thoughts welcome.

Matthew

Thank-you for that - many people sort of looked at me as though I was mad when I said I wanted to get a tatoo of that sculpture.

I guess I just fell in love with the image.

I am hoping to have it started around Feb 09 as will likley set me back a couple of thousand and I would prefer to have it done in a straight set of sittings.

Default Update

Hi All,

Well now that I had some health screening tests done and they came back ok I can make a start on my backpiece. Looks like it will be started within 2 weeks fingers crossed.

I did the first 3 chapters of my book and the editor just tore them apart - good job I am thick skinned. Apparently she felt it was 'too narrow an audience'. (Meaning she is after something that you could show your granny without fretting ).

From my past dealings she would like everything to be all sweetness and light and as I pointed out - the idea is to look at the taboo of tattooing as well as the positives and nice pics.

Anyhow back to drawing board but will have something shortly.
For all of you who have contributed - many thanks.

I am always open to having more experiences and pcitures so if interested drop me a PM.

Take Care
Matthew

Hi I finally got my backpiece started.

First sitting was 3 hours and back in 2 weeks to add other half of waterfall and tiger then start on dragon scales.

Tattoo is a couple of hours old.

I cannot seem to get image shack to work so will find an alternate link host and post up



Thanks
Matthew

That looks like it will be stunning as a tattoo.
Can't wait to see it
Are you keeping the dragon and tiger gold? Be interesting to see how that turns out if you do, Ive never seen a gold tattoo.
Good Luck

Hi Peeps

Well I have pics from the first sitting and have just had the second sitting this last friday past so will pots up pics of the first sitting and get some shots of the second sitting.

That tattoo really evolved into a much more complex piece than the first idea - the artist pointed out I had a lot of back to cover.

I will be honest it has caused some proper discomfort - but will be worth it.

I am torn between black n shade and colour on this one.

Feedback welcome and constructive criticism welcome.









The second half of the waterfall has been added so have the scales and the tiger.

Thanks
Matt
