    I’m finally getting another one! This is one I drew up a few months ago. I get to suffer all day tomorrow, but it’ll be well worth it I think!

    That’s soo cool! I still need to get my next one done (which is based off of one of Nam’s drawings. I’m so excited). 😀

    COOL! Love the wings!!! Looks like it might hurt a tad. How big is it going to be?

    Very cool. Do we get to see a photo after it’s done?

    Yes, please post a photo! I really like the swirl of the wings.

    It’s going to take up most of my back. I figure the wing tips will come up over my shoulders a bit. I’m sure it’s going to hurt lots! I’ll post pics of it tonight sometime, assuming I can sit through the whole thing today!

    I can only imagine how long that is going to take just based on my husband’s tattoo. It took nearly 6 hours the first time he had it done. Took even longer to touch it up two years later. Hopefully your skin takes the pigmentation better than my husband’s. His washwork dragons had to be changed because the guy who was doing the touch up couldn’t make them out (and we didn’t have a good close up of them…or a copy of the flash). Here’s the left shoulder and the right shoulder.

    Mine took just over 2 hours and it was on the full back. The design was quite simple, though, and with no “fillers”. The most painful place was not along the spine as you’d expect, but on the lower part of the dorsal muscle, close to where the kidneys are. I had to clench those muscles really tightly in order to avoid moving.

    Yours will take longer for sure, what with all that detail!

    ah, well just got done with session number one. I’ve been in that place from 1030 this morning and I’m just now getting home. still has a lot left to do. so far just got the basic outline done, the right wing and part of the left wing. we had to stop due to his hand bothering him, apparently he has arthritis in that hand that acts up after long sessions. so I’ll be back to see him in about 1 week for more if not the rest.
    in the meantime, I’ll be going through a lot of A&D ointment!! 😆

    I just picked up a bottle of that lotion! I guess I’ll start to use it after I run out of the A&D stuff. Anyways, here’s what I’ve got done so far. I really like the traditional tattoo shading look he’s done on it. makes it pop out more I think. It just stinks that he couldn’t finish the left wing, but oh well. I’m loving it so far.

    Back tattoos usually fade due to over exposure to the sun…To avoid this put tons of lotion on (regular lotion first then sun tan lotion)

    my Tattoos have not faded or bled at all in the 3 years I’ve had them.

    ps: new tattoo artists often dont pierce the skin deep enough and go too shallow. This causes the tattoo to fade no matter what you do because you still shluff skin off frequently enough to shed the tattoo 😀
