Italian Girl Tattoo by SpikeJones67 Italian Girl Tattoo by SpikeJones67
Heidi was a trooper for doing this massive tattoo all in one sitting. This thing is 14" tall, on her thigh, took about 5 hours. Yes, I designed the tattoo and I tattooed the tattoo.

So if she loses weight, what will happen to the tattoo? :confused: (totally not trying to be disrespectful here, just curious.)

The tattoo will be fine is she LOSES weight, it might distort a little but colors will be brighter and still just as solid. if she GAINS weight, the tattoo stretches out and needs touch ups.

Oh my I love this one Spike, redheads are my favourite!! ;)

The lines flow really well. You've kept her really clean and simple with the colours and as a result she has a lot of punch to her!

Thank You sir! Been experimenting with mixing my own colors for skin tones and shadows, been trying to incorporate some of the same techniques I use in the digital coloring, putting some purples in the shadows, some yellows in the highlights. They're pretty subtle, it's a learning process.

Oh yes, I've been using purple in my skin shadows recently and it really does work wonders!

You're right though it is a gradual learning process. I'm also adding more red and pinks to my skin tones these days, trying to avoid the various shades of brown I used to end up with :P

Yeah same here. I like the tones I ended up with in the Justine Joli pic, but I'm not sure how I did that... haha. If yer not learning, yer not growing! There's already big changes and improvements from the earlier stuff in your gallery to now, I enjoy seeing your progress!
