Angel & Lettering

It was a good day...I just did this piece...hope yall like it...I'm about to walk over to Slice have a beer and get something to eat

Step one: I use "Sharpie Markers" to draw the design directly on the skin (no flash)

Step two: I used the markers to design the letters "Young" with freehand you can make the words flow better on the skin..

Step three: after I do the outline I shade the skin. I want to keep the angel "black & grey"

Step four: color the letters in solid black. Keep them bold so people can see the lettering from a distance.

Step five: add the color and finish the tattoo. Trying to be very gentle and cause little or no bleeding so the colors will heal bright on her skin tone.
