Ink - Tattoowise
So far this tattoo has taken a total of 5 hours, I have one last sitting to go where the clouds and background will be put in, along with some line detail touchup. Design and Ink by Chad Cagle of Tuff Luck Tattoo, Carbondale, IL This photo was taken the day after I got color, it's still shiny from the A&D ointment ment to help speed the healing process.

This is a cool front-and-back piece. This shows the front of the Buddha that's sitting in his belly. The gentleman had a nice Buddha-belly of his own. Maybe it's double the luck to rub his belly :) Seattle Tattoo Expo 2009

....5 hours later. the backstory..... on our honeymoon, ian was reading a tattoo magazine that had a featured article on "noon" a tattoist in france, and commented on how much he loved the tattoo style. once our travel plans to paris were finalized, i contacted noon and surprised ian with a tattoo appointment as a birthday gift. we gave him a general idea [skeleton with heart], and gave him artistic freedom to do his work. very happy with the results.
This orchid is the last flower needed for my back piece.
It appears on the right side of my back/waist, on the lower ribs (pain!) between the amaryllis
and the old tattoo of orchids I have on my front right ribs.
Manny has decided he's going to rework the old orchid tattoo to better match the style and color of the new flowers. So I've got another session before all the vines and leaves (like you see here
) are added to the entire back piece.
If all goes as planned, my back piece will be complete by the end of March. Then, we get started on the left arm. I'm hoping the entire thing will be done by the end of summer.

DJ EvadE's turntable tattoo...The only turntable where no scratching is allowed! This was based on a stencil design which we shrunk down to 2"x3"... double, no, triple! cool coz this is his scratching arm and he loves graffiti even more than I do. Plus he's been my favorite DJ since day 1. So this is his payback for all those mixtapes. XD
just after it was done, that why it is so red and angry looking
