First off I love the traditional look. The dragon has more of a snake feel/look as you can see in the pattern of the scales and the ridges on the belly. I also like how you kept the piece close together. Most people tend to over due it when it comes to dragon designs.

I'm a big fan of black & white/gray-scale, so this is just perfect. I love the fact that you added a touch of color and kept it consistent by having the main focus being the dragon head with the flower surrounding it.

The ink splatter idea behind the dragon really did this piece a great deal of justice. Like I said before, the traditional style is a favorite of mine, but you put a current and fresh spine with your unique style. A+++++

This is stunning--I love the 'splash' look around the edges and it just--it looks so sick. Great job!

This is just gorgeous. I really like the subdued color palette with the limited reds. The scales are really nice and consistent. I love the linework in the face.

I was wondering if I could use this for my tattoo? This would be for my other arm of course. I'm just so fascinated by your work. I still havn't got my tattoos yet because I couldn't find someone who could meet my expectations, until you of course :)
