Started by new tattoo today. It's been almost 20 years since I've gotten a tattoo. We got the lines and some of the shading done.









It's my wife as Kali (with only 8 arms). She's holding a halligan and a firehose (she's a firefighter), a cupcake (she bakes), a wedding ring (she loves me), a paintbrush (an artist), a flower (gardener), a baby bottle (two girls, hopefully more), and holding her breasts (they're fucking fabulous).


In two weeks, lots of color. Whoo Hoo!

Great start!

Great concept!

Cant wait to see it progress.

I just got a pretty big cover up a few months back. Thinking about going in for some work on my right forearm. That's the last bit of real estate Im gonna get done for a while.

Whew.
Second session today. I had a bunch of detail suggestions that he went through before he started using any color.
I still need at least one more session to do the blue of the water and the yellow/orange sunburst behind the figure.









Still, I'm pretty stoked.

On Saturday, I went in to the get the remaining color but he was running late and only got the water finished.



So, it's at least one more time to get the sunburst/orange/yellow disc behind the figure.
After that, there's some fill in I'd like him to do on the shoe, shading on the arms to make them rounder and less flat, a toenail on her foot, more yellow in her eyes... etc. Just tweaks.
But, so far, I am amped with the way this is looking.

He put in the sun and a little touchup on her foot.

Thanks! The positive feedback here is great because I don't have a lot of pro-tattoo people in my circle of friends and family. They all think I'm nuts.
I'm up to about 8-9 hours now. (and about $1000 *sob*).

I might do yet another session, as he's proposing going over the figure with some more shading and light brown highlights to make it more lifelike.
But, I'm happy enough with it now that I can wait a couple months on that. As sort of a game, I've been paying for this by selling toys I don't use anymore, so I need to find some more eBay fodder to continue.
