Wow, the new ink practically covered the old piece completely: So the bottom part of the "before" is in the mouth, and the upper hook part of the "before" is just under the eye, right?

I simply love your style, how the lines and everything compliment each other. An tattooing colleague once shared a great tip with me that he learned from someone else: never let dark touch dark; and you showed how great that theory works here.

It's always hard to give constructive critique on a finished tattoo; since it's can't be erased, and one shouldn't risk the "canvas" losing their confidence in the artwork they'll be wearing for years.

I suppose one could share what could simply be added to the tattoo: So, if I was the wearer, or the tattooist, I would of wanted the line at the top of the head, that separated the ear with the white fluff, to be extended a bit, so that ear might have a more balanced presence.

And maybe to help add even more balance, I would probably make the white tuff either part of the blue fur or part of the yellow insides of the ear, since it makes the non-tuff ear feel a bit naked to me. (Even though it would of been perfect as is if there was a white tuff in the other ear as well).
What do you think?

I love this. It covers the original perfectly, and the colors are very striking.
