1st colour session_040210 So just back

koi peony tattoo

So just back in and wanted to get this shot straight away. This is about 2 hours old and still pretty tender! the Koi is almost finished and the Peony will be a shade of purple. The shading (water) is actaully not red and this is bruising/blood under the skin. It's also obvious that I have some scar tissue from the tattoo that this is covering. It was only 8 years old and you can harldy see it. A lesson learned though - choose your artist carefully. So glad I chose Irezumi though and looking forward to a final 3 hours in a few weeks.

This one hurt a LOT more than my first one. Or maybe I'd just forgotten the pain.
