I would stick to the pig skin for a while and practice those lines.
It looks like you must have gone over the edge many times to have all those "flats" on the tribal.
The colouring is very patchy, and needs much more fill.

Honestly, get to Morrisons supermarket, get three or four rolls of pig skin for around *£2.00 and practice different techniques or you will scar someone.

Just a quicky for you Rob.

If you do not want to try pig skin, other practice mediums for outlines, are simple things such as, oranges, melons, bananas etc etc.

You say you used a 7 Liner? Hopefully this wasnt for the colour also?
You need to start colouring with a 9 or 13 shader to get a nice neat/solid fill on your tribal.

Uh Oh!!!

There is your problem. Try a shading needle, and you will find the colour is far more saturated. :mad:

RL means Liner, RS means Shader... Basically, a shading needle is a more spread configuration.

Ouchhhhh!! I bet that hurt like hell. :eek:
I would have to agree with Koi, and say that that tribal doesnt look very good, and a bit more practice on fruit etc is needed. sorry. :mad:

I would definately stop practicing on yourself for now .r u really going to be happy with living with that on your leg for the rest of your natural? As you get better you will be able to go back over it and sort it out . Best to do small tattoos to begin with and stay away from tribal as a beginner it is alot harder to do than people think
