    I went in for the final session on my back yesterday (3 sessions total). Ben Wahhh is the artist.

    I got the Alien tattoo a few years ago (also done by Ben). The movie "Alien" has a lot of meaning for me, in many ways, so I've always wanted an Alien tattoo. I choose the one from Alien 3 because I liked the overal circular look and it's a queen, which is my favorite alien.

    Anyway, I wanted a background for it...yet I didn't want to do a whole space/alien theme. I was stuck for a while until I remembered a scene from Alien vs Predator where they show an iron manhole of the same alien as my tattoo. I also :love:New Orleans and fancy ironwork is a defining feature of the architecture down there. So Ben and I put together the design. I wanted the alien to be hidden in plain sight so to speak.

    have you ever looked at old rod iron at all? Not exactly prefect...

    Lets see some of your work.. lets all judge it.. since this is a competition..


    the only thing I was going to question was.. on the top left shoulder.. there is a part of a vine that didnt get outlined that was added... I tihnk its the only thing with out one.... just kind of stood out to me..

    i like the wrought iron with the flowers - i like the contrast of the flowers against the "iron" work. i guess i don't really "get" the alien there? it doesn't seem to flow to me.

    but - do *you* abso-fucking-lutely love it? because that's really all that matters.

    Yes, I love it!! Already thinking of getting more flowers/vines/leaves on my ribs to connect to the backpiece.

    Thanks for the tip on the vine outline, I am going in for some touchups/add-ons to some of the flowers and I'll mention that to him.

    Absolutely perfect lines on whats supposed to be a wrought-iron tatt would be a little weird, I think. As someone mentioned, real decorative wrought-iron is rarely perfect. But of course, to each their own.

    I'll post pics of the sleeve tonight sometime.

    I was hoping it would have that kind of effect :) I wish I had put more thought into how the Alien would fit into things when I first got it. But at the time I didn't think I would ever want much more ink....:rofl:

    As promised here are some fresh pics of my sleeve. It's actually a partial coverup. I had the dragon (armband) first...it was something I drew and wanted tattooed on myself a few years ago....

    Then I designed the outline of a spooky forest to go around and partially cover up the dragon. Ben Wahhh filled in the details. The flowers are the only color on the tatt--I requested that specifically.

    Thinking of asking him to add more to the dragon itself.
