Well.. after watching more DVDs bought from Tattooz (Dave) my confidence is building,so thought I would go for this Dragon/ Koi that Iv had for a while but never had the confidence to attempt. Used 9RL, 5RL & 9RS.
4 hours & a lot of concentration later....

As always comments / critics welcome. :)

That is a superb piece mate!how do you keep it so clean and the colours so bright?The shading and choice of colour is great and in my opinion if you could reproduce that on skin it would be a tattoo to be proud of:thumbsup:

Thanks for the comments, I am well happy with this design. Learning so much from each one now. I love it.

Ed, I have done skin but only solid black (tribal & some stars). Im hoping to do some colour work on myself over the weekend. watch this space!!.

Jim, I just give the skin a gentle wash afterwards with warm water & a sponge with a bit of fairy liquid!
What I have also been doing lately is letting the skin defrost on its own in the fridge rather than in warm water.
This takes longer obviously but I have found this keeps the skin much tighter. I was finding that when I defrosted in water it became too stretchy & the small rips in it opened up making it much harder to keep a clean skin.
