Don’t Panic! (Really)
It looks just about like I wanted it to, in my head.
Thats a lot of freaking shading. Looks great but OUCH!
This is the single most awesomest tattoo I’ve ever seen. EVER.
It’s 12 elements that I’m now joining by putting the galaxy behind them & coloring them 1 at a time. Eventually I may do the back of my leg too if I can figure out how to tattoo it myself. You can see more of it (linework before color) and other tats I’ve done in my apprenticeship at my public facebook album.
In commemoration of coloring in my Hello Ground Whale tattoo today, I’m watching Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, with kids piled everywhere on my bed.
Except now the movie keeps freezing up.
I want to drink a beer,
knit a little,
good-night text some friends a lot
And call it a night.
and, Always Know Where Your Towel Is.
I colored the dolphin, towel, and fish in my leg mural today. ONE more piece to go.
This is getting more and more epic as it goes along :)
I am so very happy with the way it is turning out. I have one more piece to color (Deep Thought / Vogon Poetry). Then I must decide how to continue it around the BACK of my leg. LoL!!
Yes, the part about the towel made me giggle. Just a little.
There’s a reason why it’s the Second Rule of the Universe! ;o)
Black Raspberry ice cream cone with ice cubes on right breast
Flaming Heart (my design) on left breast. Both tattooed by Boyd Reid.
Stargazer Lily (1st pic, tattooed by Boyd Reid) and Marigolds, Blue-girl rose with name banners (tattooed by Marshall Neal). First 4 pieces of a half-sleeve of all 12 birth flowers of my children (living and lost)
“I Might Bite” Rocky Horror Picture Show lips with banner (my design and the first color tattoo I did on myself)
“Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” leg mural, all my design and tattoo work. First picture is a composite of when it was the linework only. 2nd two pix are what it looks like today. I just colored the dolphin/towel/fish on Wed. and have one more piece to color in.
Sugar Skull and Old-school rose, first two designs (first pic) of a 7-part work (2nd pic). My own artwork and tattooing. Most of the coloring was done while looking in a mirror.
“Nikki Vixxen” female fox head & tail on my body, my tattoo name and logo. It needs to have the purple and the grayshade touched up It is very hard to get purple to take in my skin..
I wish somebody would tell me what’s a tattoo FAIL about this?
Is it Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy? Or is this orange giving birth? (Taken with instagram)
