Posted in colour in response to a commenter . It seems the photographer made the colouring a bit off, perhaps for artistic &/or aesthetic purposes. I hope this provides some better visual satisfaction though.
This is so much appreciated by me. The artistry has deep meaning & I greatly admire my artist for allowing me to carry this impeccable design for the rest of my life. Some shun tattoos, although when they are done right, they truly are art.
Yeah, your assessment of the photog's washing out of the color is spot on. Still, no shit, one of the best body tats I've ever seen. Hell.. I'd marry you, just so I could watch you walk around the house naked. Which, come to think on it, works on several levels.
Enn-ee-weigh... Look forward to seeing just a whole bunch more pics of you and your awesome Ink, woman.
It's rather stunning actually. Love the detail and the way it wraps around your body, really compliments your figure nicely (crikey, I hope that didn't come off sounding creepy, hehe.)
If you don't mind my asking, how long did the tattoo take to do? And I read in one of the comments that "it was done in two layers"? Color me ignorant, but I'm not quite sure what that means in terms of tattoo-ery?
My artist is a master, so he did it in half the time that a regular tattoo artist would do it. The first layer (i.e. tattoo application) took 3 days & 12 hours. The skin can only handle so much ink, so it has to heal before another layer is placed on to add more saturation, detail, & softness.
I actually have a few flowers (the closed blue lotuses) that are not completed yet. So I think I have had an additional 8 hours on top of the 12 hours for the second layering so far. The lotus on my lower back in only a base layer right now. You can probably see the difference in regard to the integrity of the art.
I have an album titled Tattoo Formation & Progress that might give you a better idea. Thanks for your inquiries, the artist is unique & doesn't do things the typical way.
Thank you for the commentary. To be honest, this tattoo was originally crafted to cover up stretch marks on my lower stomach. I actually use to be a very large girl in my youth. The lotus that I have tattooed all over my body may make a tad bit more sense to others now :wink:.
