So my room was pretty plain and light purple-y pink and I wanted something to make it snazzy.  I figured some paintings of tattoo flash images would be sorta edgy and cool. 

I had a bunch of canvases kicking around that I wanted to use, so I googled some flash images I thought were cool, drew them onto the canvas with pencil, then traced over it with Sharpie.  You can't really colour over Sharpie with acrylic paint, so painting is kinda like coloring a colouring book!  When i had the image all painted I just went over the sharpie lines one more time to sharpen them up.   Grin

skull and roses

cherry blossoms

Tattoo heart

Koi (the flash kinda screwed this one up in the photo)

So I really like the koi, but once it was finished, I realized that it didn't match my room or the colours in the other paintings, so i gave it to my brother, who said something along the lines of "Thats primo!"  So i guess he liked it.  Cheesy
