The Dancer Tattoo

This 5 hour session kicked my ass yesterday.... I guess Im getting old because I feel it all in my back this morning... But at the end of the day I really enjoyed doing this piece...trying to get away from the "tattoo" feel...I came at this piece like it was a painting... A "Skin Painting" I wanted hard bold line work... With soft smooth black & grey shading to give it a soulful painting feel...she sat good for 5 hours... But I could tell it was starting to hurt her in the last 30 min...she made it and I finished it... Here you go...there is only one "City of Ink" and we do skin paintings there not just tattoos...

Amazing indeed. You make this art tell a story. It seems like the tattoo of the dancer and the lady getting the tatt are one in the same.
