Just want a small piece to do last night so did this Angelique Houtkamp design.
Once again, my bloody stencil just wouldn't shift. As least before with my stupidly faint stencils I could see what I was doing. So, this didn't come out quite as planned due to not being able to see what i'd worked on. Also following lines that have bled is a total bitch. So there's todays excuses.

I know what bit's are crap, but feel free to comment away as usual!

Cheers Mike, although you're being more than generous with your comments! I really want to do a small piece on someone now if only to see if it's a lot easier.

Hi Steve
That looks great to me, dont worry about the stecil it won't be a problem on real skin. I'm sure you would have a lot of volunteers when you want to tattoo real skin. If I was closer I would certainly let you tattoo me.

Hi Steve,real nice work mate,everything looks good.....before you attempt to tattoo someone else,do a small tat on your thigh first,you will get the feel of stretching skin,plus depth etc.....good luck with it mate...when you have tattooed yourself,post a pic :icon_biggrin:

Cheers guys for all the positive comments. It really is good to hear and keeps me positive when I have a little doubt. Saying that I would never discourage constructive critism as everything helps. So thankyou again.
Ive got a big dragon on my leg I had done in Beijing that a fair bit of the ink shading came out of, I'm thinking of adding something to it for a bit of skin practice. I bet it's hard on yourself though as it does bloody well hurt, it's going to be hard to concentrate on neat lines won't it?!

I did the same thing on my arm, there was a lot of hesitation...... Went over one that had faded slightly and just gave it a general touch-up. Changed my technique completely haha.....
