my new ink.

Few pictures displaying the newest of my ink. Just starting to color it in - got lots of sessions left to go.

The back of my arm, the reed's starting to get their super green color. The blue is the end of the dragonfly. The top uncolored piece is the flower bud.


Better view of the dragonfly. The wings are nowhere near to being finished, but since they are supposed to be translucent, we have to do it in stages.


The inside of my arm. See how pretty the bud is all orange?


We still have that flower to do, the wings to finish and all the background. Lots more work. Lots more hours sitting for him. But ~awesome~ so far!

I have very sensitive skin, so every time I see a tattoo, all I can think is...Jeez, that looks painful! But it's pretty. :)

I loooove dragonflies, and your new ink is fabulous! I have a big one on my back in deep blue, yello and black. They're all over my house.
I've thought about getting a 3rd tat, not sure what or where yet.

Very vibrant! Love the colors and choices!!! I can't wait to see the finished tattoo...definately that dragonfly!

btw: Thanks for the comments on my blog...it helped knowing someone else has been through it and it's not as bad. I think I'm more scared of what she'll find than the actual *time* right now.

I love the translucent wings. That's going to be awesome. And the orange is very vibrant. I like.

Very pretty! Though still a tatoo virgin on skin, I have recently decided that I AM going to do it as soon as I decide on a design :)

Gorgeous...you have inspired me to get one myself !

Velma said...

Awesome. So pretty.

Ink doesn't interfere with breast feeding?

Cara said...

Wow! I can't believe how delicate that looks even though it is so big.

Kaci said...

I love it! But I'm one of those assholes who immediately thinks "doesn't that hurt?!?!"

Very Nice, Nancy...Orange ink is a very cool color!! I'm heading to my guy probably Monday...woo-hoo I can't freaking wait!
Doing it in stages would KILL me! That's why I get one complete image at a time, so I have something final to look at :)
Just curious to compare...how much money is it costing you? Do you pay for each session, or one fee total? Since mine is so gradual, I pay per image/design...but I tip awesomely because I heart my guy!!
