Plumeria - Tattoowise
Spirit of Aloha Tattoo
My new tat. Got it on the last evening of our trip. It's on the back of my left ankle.
Tina gets a plumeria ring around her ankle.

OK...so now I know how hard it is to take a photo of my own arm, LOL. I thought I'd give you a close-up of my ongoing full sleeve, it's been completely outlined but the 'colouring in' is only halfway...quite a few sessions to go already!

latest session he worked on the tropical foliage outlines as well as some flowers that are in there. Also did the outline work on the Mayan temple in the background, Chichen Itza--that will be a partial cover-up of some existing flowers I had. Hard to imagine what it will look like when it's all finished with color, so excited! Next session, Feb 18th...
My newest tattoo. It's taken three sessions to complete; each session was approx 3 hrs. The fine-line detail work takes a steady hand, an trained eye, and patience. This tattoo is located on my right-hand side rib cage - yes it hurt . . . more than any of the previous tats I've ever had!
More that any other tattoo I have, this one has special and significant meaning. I am very pleased with how it turned out.

Collaboration with Dave Frayne. Inkwork by Marc Pinto (right arm - traditional work). Thanks to Dave for a terrific photo shoot. It was Dave's first and he took to it like a seasoned portraiture model.
