    i'm sure it's been done numerous times...i dont care. i dig the concept of "i got luck on my side". with that said, the girl was derived from a Gil Elvgrin piece i found, but I wanted the artist to put his flare into it and do whatever he needed to her general pose to make the idea work.

    for clarification, my favorite "lucky number" is 7. i went with the 5 and 2 as back when i was a kid and played sports, i was always number 5 (go figure), clearly a 2 is needed. we went with the traditional "lucky" 13 in the horseshoe, she's holding a rabbits foot, the 4 aces is obvious, and the girl has a small sleeve that resembles my girlfriends sleeve. that was really my only request on the piece. the rest was left up to him, and i feel he pulled through with an awesome result.

    Done by Matt @ House of Tattoo, Tacoma, WA, 3 sittings (outline, shading/bathing suit/cards, the rest), this picture is after my touchup last friday, so there are still a little fresh areas.

    C&C welcome.

    Looks good, might just be the pic but the detail in the face looks a little off.

    the picture is probably some of that due to resizing/quality of the host...some of it is probably also how it was done. it was done in more of my artist's style rather the traditional 40's pin-up style (which i feel is aimed at more of a painted portrait than an artist rendition of a female), he has a tendency to accentuate facial features in his artwork. which for this particular piece, i was alright with given the fact that no girl is going to sit in a horseshoe that large, playing cards aren't that large, nor are dice. so to have her realistic looking seemed to be off kilter with the rest of the tattoo. at least in my mind it does.

    :)

    thanks for the comments. :bigthumb:
