I had 3 sittings done in one.... haha
the colours are already better now this morning and there is virtually no swelling.....
In a few weeks a Koi will be added and then after that a Koi with a longer body and a dragons head.....
Then the space will filled up with Black, water and more lilly's....

The colours are not like an ordinary tattoo they are more pastel and coloured in as if it was traditional Japanese artwork like a washed out effect.... bit like pastel crayons or water colour.....

anyway I am glad I have started it.... :D The dragon will protect me from the big bad wolf....

(I can live in hope.... lol)

WOW! That is huge! It looks great though! I am too much of a chicken when it comes to needles to go and get one myself so I am a little jealous!

OMG!! you did that in one sitting? I am impressed because I know it is painful. I have a tiny tatoo of a ladybug (about 1" x1") on my wrist with my daughter's name above it. That tiny tatoo almost made me jump out of the chair. I found that doing the color was not as painful as doing the black outline!
Anyway..You are my hero. Your tatoo is absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to see it after it has healed.

Peace and Blessings

That is amazing!! I love it :yes: can't wait to see the finished product!

I just recently joined here (a little more than a month ago) and even though I dont' know you yet, I'm glad that you're back from your hiatus.

P.S. I have 3 tattoos myself currently and have more in mind... oh yes, they're addicting!

I am ok thanks feeling a little better now that the methotrexate is working...
I have still not got a RC... :( I have had my eye on a few petrol powered ones but still not bought one.....
I have spend to much on the truck... hahaha

But yeh I will buy one soon.... I have also been looking into heli's (petrol powered ones) as they have taken my fancy too.... I flew one a little while ago and liked it a lot....
