They are starting to come on now Ron, God i hate tribal!
Tribal has to be the most boring of all tattoos, but why are people still wanting it? I tend to tell them it hurts like hell, they soon change their minds...LOL
One thing i would say is to try and put shadows in and around your pieces, as they all look a little flat. The last koi would look more "raised from the skin" with just a small amount of shadow to the bottom left, outside of the piece itself.
Thanks all i understand about the shadow but got a lot more reading to do on that score as i carnt see to get my head round it any help to point me in the right direction would be very appriciated.
The nedle i used for the fat line on the yellow koi is a 7 round liner but then i powerlined it wit a 9 round shader.
