Constellation - Tattoowise
"Our bodies are apt to be our autobiographies." ~Frank Gillette Burgess
Not much different than the last session. Conan just touched up the stars, did a bit of a secondary color wash around the puprle highlights surrounding the stars, and added in some deeper black sections to add more depth.

My new tattoo of the constellations Ursa minor and Ursa major. The big stars are, from top to bottom, The North Star - Polaris, Dubhe and Merak. The latter two being the "pointer" stars in the big dipper that show you where the north star is. Blog post with more about the meaning behind it for me: rocktreesky.com/inking-my-history
I do not recall clicking this one, must be one year old or so
The first concept in marker. the circles represent where the stars for the constellation will be. The nebula behind is meant to have a sort of 'swirling' motion and drawing the eye (and bits of bare skin) in towards the center. Artist: Conan Lea volutatattoo.com/
After the first session of two hours. Another four horu or so session is needed. So far this has the star positions outlined and the first pass of white done. Around is is the "color value outline" (as the artist termed it) that will blend and become the finished nebula. You can see bits where he will put in flares, pockets and bubbles within the nebula.

Those red dots are so he could center the tattoo in the middle of my arm. It's on the back so it's hard for me to see. My first tattoo!!
Trying to decide on design and placement.
Dana's new tattoo of the constellation Orion. It wraps around her side and is just 2 weeks old. She's planning on having more done to it eventually. Tattoos come in stages.
Part of me can't believe I actually did this.
Three random tattoo ideas
My new tattoo! The morning after the first session with Naresh at Flamin' Eight Tattoos in Kentish Town, London. You can still see the marker pen from where the design was drawn on before the tattooing went ahead. I'm going back for session number 2 (black work) on the 1st of March, then session 3 to do the colour about a month after that.
