thanks! her skin took it great! yea i forgot to take a before, sometimes i feel like its bad whoodoo. there was a leaf line going through the turtles head and the rose was in the center of the flower, the stem went right through that right front fin and below it.
cool i'm on the hunt for an apprenticeship at the moment...not too easy to find experienced artists willing to take on an apprentice in a state where tattooing's only been legal for like 10 years >.> but i'm not giving up! haha
wow, good luck to you! feel free to ask anything i have no problem explaining my steps, theories, and techniques that i use. everyone has their own style, just gotta find it. some ways work better for some than others.
