A beautiful work of art!

I have been trying to improve the neatness on the backs of my embroidery, so I am blown away by your reverse side.

Do you have any hints for me on how you manage to have it look so perfect on the back?

Thank you so much...  The best way I can help you is to have you look at the enlarged photo on my Flickr page of the reverse side, first.  Then you can see where I either travel around prior stitches that are already there, in a whipped stitch style, or after many stitches have been made, it is WAY easier to travel a longer amount of thread (I call it burying the thread) back and forth beneath stitches that are already there, especially when there are many stitches that are in really close lines, so you can get the needle under several then snake it back and forth underneath stitches.  When there is only a line of thread to work with, I take the ends of my thread and whip stitch it underneath the line of floss that was already there.  Does that make sense?  I never knot I always just hold a palm length of thread/floss stable underneath my hoop and make a couple of stitches, that way I have a tail to later, re-thread back into my needle and work back underneath my stitches...  hope this helps.

I think that it makes it easier to see how the stitches are worked.

That's gorgeous! You did an amazing job keeping it close to the tattoo design but still making it your own as well.
Tattoos like that make me want to get one.

I wanted to thank everyone for the comments again, but was hoping for more feedback on the stitches... anyone?
