This is amazing. I love how the tree actually seems to have grown on the body -- the way the branch bends with the ribs and dips into the slope of the back. Gorgeous detail as well. The wood is fantastic. Great work, this makes me want to get a tattoo even more. (But I still need to decide on what...).
Thank you for your praise. I actually drew the branches on her with a surgical marker as I tattooed it keeping in mind her natural curves, and body structure. Large tattoos always work better when you take in consideration the persons natural form.
Apparently, this is the favorite of all my viewers... I'm not sure why though... I free handed this this 'cause our thermo-fax machine can only handle 11 x 14. Although it was fun...I've done four or five others... just like it. The only thing is this was the only one I've photographed. huh. go figure.?!
