HNT# 4

OK, I promised more of my arm, here it is. Not quite the artistic photo some people have, but my art is on my arm. The wizard on the forearm took 4 hours to do. The remainder of the arm took 26 hours and 5 sittings. All the color from the the elbow up was done in one sitting. 6 hours. Everyone in the shop was awed I could sit for it. I was awed the artist finally finished the piece. From the elbow up, it's a cover-up of 4 other tattoos. Happy HNT.

That is the most amazing art I have ever seen! How did you stand the pain? Castle, Dragon and a wizard.. VERY nice Mad Monkey.

How old is it?

I was just watching INKED last night and the guy was talking about how you have to go deep to get the color in there and to keep it bright for years to come. I can only imagine the pain that was because your art is so vibrant.
Very cool!

What's your other arm look like? Is it doodled too? Funny to see your arm and think of you in your tailored suits. Sort of nice guy on the outside and badboy/wild child underneath...like a secret.

OMG, how beautiful. For being nearly 7 years old the colors are more than impressive. If I may ask, what kind of ink was used to stay so true to the colors?
I really am in awe at it.

Happy HNT and wow!

NICE!!! Its when I see tats this vibrant that I wish I had lighter skin. Because Im Native American, my tats dont jump like yours. I love your previous posting too...right when some of the work was done. M

At 10:50 PM, Blogger Neonalune said...

Yeah..so I know I'm a little late commenting on this cuz you've obviously moved on and all. And who cares really since I'm like number freaking 61 and I can't seem to come up with anything really meaningful to say about finally getting to see part of the upper half of you. Seriously. All I can come up with is....DAMN. (And that's a good DAMN.)

Have a great weekend. :-)

 
At 11:35 PM, Blogger Emily Anne said...

Gorgeous. You should put up some close up shots eventually, the real beauty is in the detail.

 
At 11:56 PM, Blogger Tish said...

At 4:00 PM, Blogger Sexy Suburbanite said...

Wow! It really is amazing. This does makes my one little tatoo seem kind of lonely though.
