Foo dog tattoo sleeve, FINISHED!!

Uploaded pictures from the last two touchup sessions on my foo dog tattoo sleeve. 2 weeks ago, we had a 3 hour touchup session, that basically went over nearly everything….the blues of the peonies, the darks of the mane and tail and background, did some whites of the spots on the foo dog body as well as highlights of white on the swirls of the mane and tail.

Last night, did one last little session, just went into the whites again, and a bit of the light blue over my wrist bone (ow!). But, it’s finished!!

I will so miss Shayna…I have been working with her for nearly 2 years, first on my tiger sleeve on my right arm, then the foo dog on my left. Lots of hours spent together, and we have become quite good friends. She leaves Huntsville next week to open a tattoo shop with her boyfriend in North Carolina. I wish her the very best, but will miss her. I hope we can stay in touch. The whole thing just leaves a lump in my throat.

Here’s my last entry for auction for the Nibblefest Ebay art contest, theme this month, “asian inspired”. I love doing chinese brushwork ink paintings of cats, and this is definitely asian-inspired, with a twist!

A portrait of a cat doing the groom….based on my rescue cat Kesey. This would be a good pairing with my other cat ink painting for auction on Ebay right now, check them out!

But, you have to get in there quick for this one, as it’s only a 3 DAY AUCTION!
