Ok- so this goes from my very first practice lines to the cover up design I drew...to cover up the ugly practice lines- all the way to the outline I did today.
This was a risky move...haha! This is only my third time practicing tattooing on real skin (only my own skin) Doing a cover up could've really sucked.
I messed up some lines, but nothing I can't fix when I come back in to shade & color her after she heals. The lines will make more sense when I do that, too. I left space for shading & highlights, so it looks kind of weird for now.
Style is a mashup of tattoos by my favorite tattoo artist & inspiration, Kelly Doty. She's @kellydotylovessoup on instagram if you'd like to peruse her art :)
