keep up the good work - more you do, the better you'll get. The yellow flower is nice and clear - and a good attempt at the star!

better than my one i did tonight, i like image 5 the best good detail. i just dont seem to be having much luck with pig skin, ive done fruit and they look fine, the lines go in well, but on the pig it just dont do it for me, and i cant work out what i am doing wrong.

nice work keep it up

Thanks mate. Pig skin I find isn't always that easy to work with but it is great for practising. The advice I have had from the guys here includes giving it a good scrub with a sponge scourer and hand soap and making sure you get a good stretch on it while tattooing the skin. I haven't done too many but most times I work on pig skin there seems to be some annoying thing like a big dark ink stain through the tat which just won't come off GRRRRRR!!!!...like this... 2011-06-09 15.43.32.jpg and this... 2011-05-28 17.20.28.jpg But just keep persevering mate and you will only get better.
Cheers.
P.S. This is the first time I have past some advice on in the forum. Yaaaay.:icon_mrgreen::cheesy::thumbsup:
