Going to be a Sleeve
Natasha is one of those folks who swore up and down that she wasn’t getting a sleeve. Up until pretty recently actually.
She just kept asking me to add things here and there to fill in the spaces. With this section she has finally come to terms with the whole thing. We added the magnolias and plum blossoms yesterday. There will be more to come to make it a more cohesive sleeve and tie everything in together – but I am happy with this piece and wanted to share it with you here since Instagram just doesn’t do it justice.
I would like to mention for anyone playing the home game… this would not make a good tattoo on it’s own. While the whites and light pinks have lots of contrast and stand out nicely here – they would not in 20 years. There is not enough contrast between them and the skin to stand the test of time.
This will be addressed with the background and may include strategic linework to make sure that the tattoo will be beautiful for years to come.
