looks fantastic so far, plenty of small scales to start off with and get used to the working area before going at the long curved lines etc, looks a nice piece to do actually, lines look clean and solid from what i can make out, but how on earth did you tattoo your own back :thumbsup: as for needing to go deeper around neck and shoulder... i haven't a clue but im guessing thats just the norm on the human skin? i know alot of members on here are used to the usual arm and leg but sure there must be members who have tattood neck and shoulder that can shed some light?

Hi Paul

Will you free-hand rest of tatt or can you get stencil to match up ok?
