    We have an apprentice working at our shop. She's done about 8-10 tattoos so far (all small kanjis, letters and such) and she needed to try something a little more 'advanced' so I had her draw this up and tattoo it on my leg. Its an old school style anchor with a skill at the top and little shark heads on the sides. She did fairly well. There was a few small areas where some lines were a little sketchy but my boss showed her which ones and she fixed them. Here's the pics.

    I like the shading. Not bad for someone just starting out.

    Yeah, pretty decent for an apprentice that has only worked on kanji and letters.

    I wouldve gone for less comical eyes (all black or something) but otherwise looks like she is on her way.

    Actually it's not. It's the way the pic was taken. The upside down spade (not a heart) is even.

    She's coming along really quick. She did two more tattoos tonight (color and shading) and they turned out excellent.

    We've apprenticed 4 artists at my shop and I've been a guinea pig for all of them.

    I LOVE "crazy eyes" on tattoos. I try to get the artists to do them on all my tattoos but they refuse.



    Thanks everyone!:wiggle:

    He is much more even keeled now and I'm sure bites his tongue from time to time. I'm fairly certain that whitepearl was just giving him a little dig.
