Just got this guy done a couple months ago by the lovely stephanie brown in chicago, with plans to make it a half sleeve. [This photo was taken right after getting tattooed, so the white highlights have settled down a bit.]

It’s actually a cover-up (you may be happy to know that I killed a silhouette birds-on-a-wire tattoo), which explains the density right under the bird. We plan on going back over that area to make sure it’s fully covered, as I can still see the original line.

I’m looking for general input on the current design/execution, as well as thoughts for the half sleeve. I am in love with the bird, and would include one more on my arm, but I originally wanted more of an illustrated, etched texture on the leaves, however understood that more shading meant a more successful cover-up. Would it be possible to have less density/darkness and shading in the leaves/flowers on my arm without it looking unbalanced? Naturally, the part on my arm will be seen more often than the entire tattoo, but I want it to look consistent. I’m inspired by botanical illustrations, so if you have any especially good examples or sources, I would love to see them! Thanks for your time!

THIS LOOKS SO COOL. Just another example of people who have great tattoos are usually the most critical about them—which is why they have such a good one! 

I don’t think the unbalanced / density of the leaves is weird and I wouldn’t have noticed it because it carries throughout the piece—not just the place he covered it up. The texture in the feathers mirrors the textures everywhere else, and it very much looks like like a classic botanical illustration without looking like a text book pictures was slapped onto your arm.

Nice subtle color choices too that don’t over whelm the intricate line work. Plus the repeating lines/dots everywhere break it all up in such an interesting way.

ME GUSTA!!!!!!!

My tattoo was done by Josh Crotty at Anchor’s End in Duluth, MN.

It’s a loose interpretation of a Van Gogh painting, and I really really like Van Gogh.
