Did this one on the top of my leg (quite big) about four weeks ago, thought i had already uploaded it. :confused:

I mentioned on another thread yesterday how you will always want to go over things as you get better with time. The first pic shows the stencil covering the first tattoo i did on myself. As you do, dig the needles straight in to yourself as soon as you get a machine. :p
This baby hurt like hell, and took about 3 1/2 hrs to complete using a 7RL, 9RS and a 7 MAG.

You can see the old design, but i think the design allows it to be overlooked. Or is it just me wishful thinking. Do you think i need to darken the scarf where you can see through it??

Opinions please

It is at the top of my leg, so the stretch is the same as if it was someone elses leg.

The old design blends in really well with the new so great job. cover-ups are something I never attempt. I try to sketch ideas out but always chuck it in the end. You are awesome by the looks of it so Bravo!

nice cover up bro!... the only issue I see (cause the work looks good from where I'm sitting) is on the design... maybe its just me but I think the eye/eye lash where it meets the nose looks off, I think I would have curved the nose line to meet where the top of the eye starts and then curved out aguin and back in to the outline right under the eye where it ends.... dont know if you understand what i'm say'n but just what I see.

props for the coverup!
