|The little wolf at the top is 9th century Irish-Viking, Jelling style. He was lonely up there on my shoulder (my first tattoo! sniff), and I needed the rest of the arm's real estate, so World's Most Awesome Artist Adam Kilss from Zulu Tattoo found a way to incorporate the two, and to adapt the original design so that we could, like see the dragons' heads. |
My arm generally does not look quite so sausagey or so red. Three hours of color work will do that. Last session was six, and boy howdy was I a mess after (for about a week, actually).
