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.

Well done though, if the customer is happy!

Im with koi about the depth of the designs. The slightest bit of shadow makes tattoos look quite a bit better.

Thanks for posting though, i thought this section would have been quite filled by now.
