This is my most recent tattoo, a koi swimming up to a lotus flower with the Kanji symbols for Strength and Courage beside the fish. It's my design and was beautifully done!
The symbol is at the bottom of the piece and really grounds it. I'll be going back a 2nd time for added color. 3 hours was all I could stand this time around.
Eric's Tattoos.. a (very late) update from a previous shoot... You can see the tat is still not complete on the right lat... strobist info: 2 - 285hv's one to either side (and very slightly behind) the model at 1/4 power
"Tattoo, round 2" About three years ago I got my first tattoo on my back. I got it at a time I felt I made a drastic change in my life. My body is my carving and my canvas. Since then, I decided if something screamed at me like my original tatt did that I would get it inked on me. Fast forward to the now, and something screamed at me today. One symbol I have worn most of the time (the knot) and the other one not so often (the skull with engravings). In my mind, my very own 'ying/yang' I suppose. Take bad with the good. Balance... you can go on and on. My idea is to get inked on my body (still thinking about the place) the tightly clenched fist holding a metal chain with those two symbols hanging. I'll get an estimate soon, and no matter the price I plan on getting it done in April.
