Peony - Tattoowise
Gosto muito da minha mana...
Peony on Mauw Tattoo by: me
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.

this is the other shot in followup to my initial photo here . i like the mood here better but it's not as clear and has a lot of noise. i like that i'm not using the viewfinder though. i personally like this one better. there's a rawness to it. which one do you like better? best viewed large: farm3.static.flickr.com/2071/2074142915_f1013f0937_o.jpg
