    Hey all

    Just finished my 9th hour (4th session) on my 1st tattoo...

    [​IMG]

    The bottom is darker and red because that is the part that just got worked on but it should lighten up...

    All i have left is about and hour or so of some of the darker values on the top half.


    THEN DONE!!!

    Since I'm moving in 2 months I need to get it done soon by my guy so I will update when its all finished!

    Neat looking, I got tats in my younger days. And matter of fact I have a tree also, not as big as yours, but it is called a weeping tree. Has a main face on it (trunk area) and in the branches are faces. These faces are friends I have lost in the past.
    Will have to get the wife to take a couple of pic's of the ones I have.

    yeah i already have the itch for more and i'm not even done with this one... however my truck is feeling a bit neglected so i will be spending my next chunk of money on it

    the most painful would have been up in the armpit (my tattoo guy says behind the knee is really bad too) the ribs were pretty rough and anywhere where the bone wasn't padded, like the hip.

    yeah i guess... there is actually some writing in the roots and branches... more for me than a banner for everyone else or something... tree kinda ties in but i think it looks pretty cool looking too so that was a big part

    i also want to draw whatever gets tattooed on me so i had been working on this idea off and on for about a year

    damn thats sweet! but i know the side and ribcage is one of the most painful places to get a tat, i bet that was excruciating! now you just have to get your ink guy to work in one of the mooninites and you'll be all set:)
