Foo dog tattoo sleeve, FINISHED!!

March 25, 2009

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.

So, I posted last night that I went in and we worked the sleeve AGAIN, lol….I can’t believe I’m doing this every week. It’s SO much fun having a sore arm all the time. And, it was sore last night, feels a bit better today.

Anyway, check out the progess shots of the peony flowers that have been finished, and the foo dog eyes and a bit of white added here and there…only touchups mostly to do now….perhaps 2 more sessions??

Going in again next Wednesday….

Foo Dog Tattoo Sleeve work in progress

Session two of the work on my left arm foo dog sleeve. Did some shading of the foo dog, and some of the coloring on the peony over my wrist. These photos were taken the next morning. It’s healing now, and I lost a bit of the blue over the wrist/hand, that is a tough spot to tattoo and keep ink, it will take some touchup. But, no worries, still lots to do. And touchup is a part of getting tattoos, especially large ones.

The shading on the foo dog looks really amazing, I can’t wait to finish the rest of her. There will be white highlights eventually on this one as well.
