    Just got this done last night, so it hasn't healed at all really (pic taken when I hopped out of the shower and put vitamin d on). Just the outline, some of you may remember the lower part (shaded black roses w/flames) and this is the continuation of that design on the right side of my body.


    Sorry for the horrible quality of pic...my camera is 6 years old :hsugh:

    Ribs hurt a lot- but it was the best part for me, plus it didn't hurt 1/2 as bad as the hip did...I had serious problems on my stomach- I couldn't stop having quick spazms which threw off my artists hand.


    Thanks for the kind comments :bigthumb:

    Thats awesome. Are you going to mirror the other side as well with that image?

    Thanks for the comments, better than my previous pic post :rofl:

    Hopefully I won't gain 100 pounds or anything, she would certainly look funny then :)


    Other side will not be a mirror...the 2 roses are a mirror image- rough idea for you is that both of the figural images come from the same source but they are completely different; one pure one sinister, duality deal. If you want to go into serious detail let me know but its a little personal :)


    Inspiration for the style- this isn't my artists style, www.twistedsol.com (lee ball), but he did it for me anyway...look at some old art nouveau books and you'll see some similarities in the face/hair. I just told him the concept and he grabbed a pen and drew it on me.

    I love the idea of mans duality. If ya dont mind prying, i'd love to here to the whole idea or at least some cliffs. I'm currently working on my own "scheme" now.

    In essence it's my vision of the 4 "personalities" of man but depicted with dragonic images. The inner good, inner bad, and the 2 faces we show the world in a public sense. Long story ;)

    I look forward to seeing your tat devlop with photos, its gonna be amazing :)

    Can't type alot right now- but if anyone has read carl jung and knows about personas/masks it goes along with that. Basically (what he writes) is that we all have different personas based on social context, if we strive all day to be one persona (ex: business man) and project our animus (general 'man's" persona, which is an archetype or primordial/soul image) - the more we insist on that one persona the worse and more violently the shadow (anima, or woman's persona) will compensate in our personal life...it will be manifested in weakness, this turns us into a public and a private self. So ideally we would have a middle ground.

    This is just his writings, its not what the tattoo is about but its one of the things that I've always felt strongly about before I ever read Jung- ever since I was a little kid. I certainly have very different personas, and I want to be reminded not to go to far either way because of the bad things that have happened in the past.



    Really personal stuff can't be written because of some people I know IRL who read these posts :)

    On another note- has anyone else had work this size on this area done?

    2 hours after I got it, I went to take the bandage off and apply the first vitamin a-D gel stuff on as instructed...after washing it I started to put the gel on, I started to feel woozy- i was shivering and I almost threw up- for about 15 minutes I sat on the toilet with my eyes closed shaking. I only got better once I put on a lot of clothes, is this shock? I couldn't stop shivering for some reason...filling in isn't going to be fun.
