I know, from the outline to finish it's been a serious process...but I'm so happy with it I have an amazing artist...SUPER nice guy, too

...And the best part? I only paid for about 1/2 of it. The rest we bartered for. He needed photos taken of his paintings, so in exchange for me taking photos of about 6 of his paintings he finished the rest of my tattoo. So I paid for the outline and one coloring session, then he did the last two sessions at no cost. So what would have been roughly an $,1800 with tip only cost me about $900. I've made a good friend, we'll keep trades going as long as we want.

Not only that, apparently other people in the shop need photos taken of their paintings as well, so I can make some money doing that...or trade it for work from them! (But I like my artist, so I'll probably stick with him...Even though they're equally as talented)

Pays to have gotten a BA in Photography I guess

That's not why I got the tattoo....It has symbolic, sentimental meaning to me...But thank you

All 8 of mine have meaning as well, im just pulling your leg. I am glad something that is so visually stunning has deeper meaning than just the beauty of it!
