Let me start by saying that I am a fan of your artwork. I am looking for a tattoo apprenticeship myself... I have much respect for you! I enjoy your composition and flow. Your color choices are fun and interesting. Just a thought... adding more contrast by darkening dark areas and incorporating a few white spaces for highlights could make a stronger visual impact.

Keep doing what you're doing! I would love to hear updates on how your tatto art is progressing.

You're designs are spechless.

Can I ask you what materials you use to make them so accurate?

I am an apprentice too, but my designs are made by watercolour and black China ink.

Thank's for the answer and for the wish of luck...Now I'm studing in a 90 hours course that will give me the possibility to open my own tattoo studio, but I'm gonna do some experience first...So I hope to find a good tattooer to teach me the profession. ;)

Oh gosh this is so beautiful, the colours are just wonderful and fit so well. I think the colour choices help define each part too, though I think some heavier shading and highlights would benifit your work, to really make the different parts pop more~ because certain parts look a little flatter than others, like the wings and body in comparison to the foot or skull.

agreeing with JMcGaham. Im no artist, but this could be even cooler with more contrast between the elements. Tho, lines, style and overall layout is excellent! Check out my realistic half sleeve for an example where much of the same colors is used.
