Here are three tattoos from Friday and Saturday.
The M4 will be coming back the week after next to be finished. It's going to be all grey scaled so I will have a nice challenge keeping the 81mm HE mortar rounds and M4 distinct from each other. Excited to get to work on it again.
The cotton plants were a delightful challenge. I like how it has a nice night time feel as if your seeing the cotton plants by the glow of the moon. Really lent itself to being a memorial tattoo for a man who liked to pick cotton to relax. Still wanting to get my shading and line work a bit less choppy but I'm sure practice will make perfect given time.
The sea serpent was a lot of fun. The serpent is based on the sea serpents and dolphin forms found in illustrations and statues from the a lot of the sea mans era. I'm still working out traditional shading and composition but with each traditional piece I do I fall more in love with it.
