    got a touch up to do in a few weeks so we can make the older parts (the dino and girl) a little more fresh to blend in with the new stuff.

    fresh and bloody/swollen. ill get better pics from a real camera once it heals

    this one is finished finally. the touch up will fill in little things we didn't get on the last session, mostly just those little flowers. and he's going to go back over most of the dino and the girl to make them pop again since they are 2 years old.

    we'll be deciding on which other pieces of rydens work will flow with this one, since i plan on making it a full sleeve.

    went in today for my touchup. my artist quit the shop and went somewhere else in town, but im not a big fan of the shop he's at and his schedule is all weird now. soo i decided to go with someone from the shop i've been going to that is used to rydens work and specializes in colorful pieces and whatnot like mine. he does amazing work too.

    i scheduled an appointment for jan 2nd to get about 3 hours of outlining done for the rest of the sleeve :bigthumb:

    Are the clouds supposed to be red or are they still changing tone? I've never seen the reference work. :dunno:

    okay so change of plans on the next step in my tattoo adventure. im not getting the sleeve started until after april 2010 because im the maid of honor in my bff's wedding in april and her family would prefer i hold off on getting all inked up until after the wedding is said and done.

    so in the meantime, im starting a side piece on my rib cage. a badass old school pirate ship. going in saturday to size everything up and start getting some ideas thrown around :bowdown:
