    I started this one around March of 04. It took 3 sessions of about 2 hours each with the completion date being around June 10th. The new tattoo is the obviously dark one with the tribal lines and Stargazer lilies. (The lower one is about 3 yrs old, of hibiscus flowers and ivy). All the work on the newest was done at a fucking amazing shop called "Lost Art Tattoo" in Salt Lake City by a terrific guy named Gailon. (for my fellow SLC kids)

    Anyway, I took these pics around July while on a trip to Texas..then left the camera there..:squint: Finally got the camera back. The color I wear now is STILL about as brilliant as what you see now. :) Im still very very happy. As for why I went with the design I did, I am absolutely in love with Stargazer lilies..theyre strikingly beautiful and smell like cinnamon. :) This design, by the way, was drawn on my back freehand first, with a red pen, then he went over it. I was seriously impressed.

    Okay! Less talk, more pics!

    Oh, and yes...this hurt like a bitch. Those two top flowers actually hurt the worst..the rest was rather bearable. Surprisingly enough to me, the tribal didnt hurt much at all.

    Thank you! I love looking at the pictures now because its a bit hard to see the detail when looking at it myself without having to stretch and strain turning my neck to see it all. :) I still love it.

    Agreed. We're discussing plans on how to somehow make that earlier one somehow mesh better. It'll all work out in the end. :)

    To be honest, I saw a pic of a girl a long while back with lines going down her spine. I thought it looked great but i wanted to add the flowers in somehow. I knew i wanted a large one at the bottom and a few more along it. So i basically went in with the pictures of the flower, and a copy of the picture and said, " I really like the lines on this..but i dont want it copied. And I want to incorporate these flowers." We came up with a plan together and he drew it on the following week onto my back. I loved the first design he came up with.

    Most definately. And two of my friends have gone to get work done by him as a result of hearing about my experience and seeing how great it looks. Gailon is absolutely wonderful and if any of you live in SLC, you should definately go talk to him about your next artwork.

    Id love to see some close ups of the flowers as well. Specificly the color transitions and the outline on the flower. I cant get a very good look at the artists lines from either of the pics.
