I decided to do a portrait of a rock hen, on a river rock of course! So, check it out and bid! You know you want to!

Foo dog, upper half shading 3

Friday afternoon I spent getting the body and tail of my foo dog shaded, I so love the swirls in his tail! Not a bad sit, except that poor Shayna had a cold and was wearing a mask. But she said the highlight of her day was getting to work more on my sleeve. It's coming along!

Foo Dog Tattoo Sleeve work in progress

Originally uploaded by tagscats
Session two of the work on my left arm foo dog sleeve. Did some shading of the foo dog, and some of the coloring on the peony over my wrist. These photos were taken the next morning. It's healing now, and I lost a bit of the blue over the wrist/hand, that is a tough spot to tattoo and keep ink, it will take some touchup. But, no worries, still lots to do. And touchup is a part of getting tattoos, especially large ones.

The shading on the foo dog looks really amazing, I can't wait to finish the rest of her. There will be white highlights eventually on this one as well.
