Hello Smiley
Long time no post, been awfy busy and forgot to upload any work here, sowwie!

Here're a couple of recent tattoo designs i've doodled for friends.
Attempting to brush up on my doodling skills, and building aportfolio to hopefully apply for a tattoo apprenticeship.
Crits and tips are welcomed Smiley

(I did not tattoo this piece, alterations and inkage done by Heaven & Hell tattoos in Scotland by Zara)

Ummm. No critique. You are a very talented artist, and captured the essence of things very well. I like your use of roses. Those are always popular with tattoo. Especially for the girls. I love the rope borders, and vines, as well. And very cute expressions on the faces. Whimsical. Which captures the characters nicely. That looks to be a large tattoo on the side of a female..if I am not wrong. Are these outlines meant to be colored and shaded? Or just the outlines?


Edit to add: I have tattoos, and mine were done in two steps. #1 outline...healing time of about 2 weeks, then #2 the color. Shading those roses would be fun, as would shading on the pumpkins!

NEW REQUEST: Need quilting fabric with ONLY purple, grey, green. Solids or Prints in any combination/shades, but NO OTHER COLORS ALLOWED. HELP! They are hard to find.

Thank you very much Smiley input is much appreciated
Got a lot of practice to do still, recently went through a lazy spell, so just beginning to brush up on things.
That was left up to the tattoo artist, so i'm not sure what she's got planned.
They are just the outlines atm, but i think she's used a slightly thicker needle as it's a big piece. It'll be interesting to see it once it's all shaded and coloured!
I think depending on time hers'll be another 2 sittings, one for shading and second for colour as it's a big piece.
