    Just did my first sitting ever for my first ever tattoo! I got it done at Black Heart Tattoo in SF. I don't think that I could be happier with it so far, I just can't wait till my next sitting and get color :).

    It's a trinacria, the sicilian symbol... which is my heritage, but also with a few twist and costomizing thrown in.

    What do you guys think?

    took 3 hours with only a 5 min break between outline and shading, and yes i will confirm the whole area was a little touchy :kdubb:

    ...yeah, Black Heart is amazing... everyone there was friendly and are amazing artists, not to mention the actual shop being comfortable and a clean environment.

    I have absolutely 0 complaints.

    ...Which is wierd because when i came in a month before to make the appointment the receptionist said it was $150/hr...

    Thanks man, they were pretty impressed which was a cool thing for me... but it definitely wasn't easy to sit through. He said I sat great though, or it could have easily taken closer to 4 hours so that was good to hear.

    I really actually enjoyed it.

    I borrowed the camera, and don't have any others, so that's it for pictures at the moment...

    but i want color just not really sure how i want to go about it, like if i want the legs the same color as the face or the snakes alike or having them all different.

    As of now i'm thinking an icy-blue color on the face w/skin-colorish on the legs and varied snakes.

    hmmmmmm :dunno:

    EDit: and it looks alot cleaner now after i've cleaned it a few times the lines are more distinct and it looks even better all around : )_
