Reverse - Tattoowise
Three random tattoo ideas
brought to life here, back in January. Since, I have been really stirring full of ideas for the addition to my leg, which you can see the initial outline above. The same theme and ideas are in place: essentially a series of mannequins or "dress makers dolls," all in various poses. This is the newest addition courtesy of David "Hek" Rogers, who performed the original piece on my leg, First Glimpse. A few people who have seen it initially have asked the same question, "What's the story behind this one," because those who know me best, know that I always have some wild story or memory that drives and creates the ideas behind the ink. There is a story, I will trust you with that -- but the actual details I am going to keep within my head for now. The piece is unfinished, however it will be completed two Sundays from now. There is more along the back of the leg that you cannot see in this photo, elements that connect the previous doll with the new chained version. The chains wrap around the back of the leg and anchor into a platform that is mounted to the tree ( filler bark / wood grain ) that is going to be carried throughout the entire leg. The only space I have yet to determine what to have is the absolute top and center of my leg. I am toying with two different ideas, both of which have equal meaning and importance to my life, but I am at a loss as to which gets the priority skin estate! Let me know what ya think! Are you going to get it colored? No! I do not have any color outside of the occasional touch of red and a faded drop of white on my pieces. I do not intend to have pieces consisting of any bright and flatulent colors. I like to keep them simple and let the shading and tones of black/grey do the speaking.
