    Started it today @ sacred tattoo in NYC. this was 4 hrs of work for the outline. Go back may 5th for more. Gonna add a sun up top and sun rays blasting through. and also some fire down below. you can't really tell from the picture but what appears to be fire at the bottom is actually hands pulling the phoenix down. pretty badass IMO i'm very happy with it so far.:bowdown:

    Looking good man. I can see that turning out really well if the colors pop. (assuming you are getting color?)

    Is that fire at the bottom?
    Looks good though, I like the wings especially.

    yeah i'm definitely getting color, and there is gonna be a fire/smokey background.

    there is going to be a murky muddy color at the bottom, its not actually fire but there will be some coming from behind it. the murky stuff is actually evil hands coming out of the murk to pull the phoenix down.

    A phoenix rising from flames is quite common. Can I ask what your motivation was for the ink?

    Looks pretty good brother. I've been looking for some good shops in NYC, as I'll be living there this summer and definitely want to get some work done.

    Not bad but Im gonna wait until I see some color to decide how much I like it. Looks like some quality ink though, so in that respect I like it:bigthumb:
