Thanks so much for the comps! It really means a lot Here is the current project. I was intending on doing a true 3D, but it is ending up as a cross between 2d and 3d.... learning and enjoying myself in the process. Besides finishing all the scales, hair, tail, and details, I need to work on the dimensions of the face quite a bit and do something with the upper chest... something bothering me about this and I cant quite figure it out yet. But I guess that's what makes this challenging and fun! So here are some progress pics. I think I am a little over half way there.









Thanks for looking!

Great composition on this piece, I like the waves incorporated in there too. Can't wait to see it finished.

Thanks so much! I continue to enjoy working on this... it's unlike anything I have tried. Unfortunately, I can only work on it every so often But its a gift for a friend and her bday is next week, so I better get a movin! Will probably give it to her and then require to refine it as I see areas that can be improved. I'm a bit happier with the left arm now (the one that points upward, thanks to some advice from TCers!). Now, I think the left chest and right breast needs some work. Will work on creating some more depth in the hair. I'm also working on the back side. Originally, I was going to leave the back blank, but then one thing led to another and you know how it goes. Then I gotta figure out how to make it smooth. And I think I will tie the cord around her left arm so the recipient can wear as a necklace if desired. Anyhow, thanks for looking! Any comments/advice is much appreciated!

More Polynesian tattoos Been away from this for a long while. Just needed a break. Have a few sessions under my belt since returning to tattoo and here are the updates.

This is my brother who has graciously lended me his skin. I will have to put a second coat on everything (notice the areas that ink has fallen out due to my poor techinque. But "should" be good with second run).







And here is the grand-daddy of my tattoo work... this one is really painful for my buddy. But this is what he has always wanted. So I'm happy to give. Notice where ink has fallen out... this is where I unsuccesfully experimented with larger needle groupings. So a second run is necessary to his dismay.



Thanks for looking

Those look pretty cool. I'm completely taken away by that Tiki though, great style on him. Wish I could be present to try and win.

Yeah, your buddy was beggin for pain on that one 'drill on every last inch of my back please'. That's ALOT of ink.

Thanks guys! Appreciate it much. Here is a piece I'm working on and then a piece that is finished.

I love doing the simple nature stuff... leaves, florals, etc. So here is an attempt at combining tiki in a nature scene. It's supposed to be a baby marquesan tiki sleeping on a leaf. Still need to figure out how to tighten up the detail, but I like the overall concept and simplicity. Will be a necklace piece for a friend. Measures about 3" and the tiki is about the size of my thumbnail. Was able to thin out the leaf a little less than 1/8th inch. Any bits of advice to offer on what I can do to make this little guy betta, I woudl appreciate.



Here is a request from a friend for his wife. Their wedding ring is an orchid with maile lei forming the band. Took some pics of the ring and went to work. Was not exact like the ring, but close enough (my interpretation this one is done... just need to rope it for necklace.



Thanks
