The artist was very fast, so he did all the lines, shading and coloured the lilies too. I heal fast, so I had no problems with it. It was a bit sore on the first few days, and I actually went to a friend's housewarming party the same day, it was over 200 kilometres away ;P Then there was WGT, and after that the second sitting where the background was finished. I opted for a flowery black lace pattern as the background, I hadn't ever seen a lace tattoo and the artist didn't have experience on them either, but it came out great! The whole thing cost around 600 euros, and I'm very happy with it. I knew it would be expensive, and I wanted a high class artist and was willing to wait a long time to get it done. Doing the background hurt like hell, he used the thinnest needle and there was much skin to cover! I'd still do it all over again :) I might expand it to a full sleeve some day.
Two weeks ago I got the lowest lily touched up and have been itching to take decent shots of the tattoo to share. It's still a bit shiny, but looks okay, so here they finally are!
|Here it is! Two cat skulls and four lilies on a base of black lace.|
|Here you can see the lovely edge of the lace on my shoulder.|
|The top skull looks a bit wonky from this angle ;P|
