colorful calla lilies tattoo

After about 9 months, i've finally finished this project. it's intentionally over-colorful - a nice change from the realistic that im always trying to achieve with floral work.

This is my dream, but bor white callas and rather crossing from left down to right top of my back I wish I could affort to make this dream come true.
When I was born my mother got an amazing bounch of calla flowers, she thought this is a bad sign. It was just a sign that I will love this flowers, I will grow them in my garden, paint or knit them on my dresses, and my only photos that were taken for an exhibition of a photographic team was the photos of calla flowers i gave just by accident.
However this is a magnificent job

thanks you very much. i love you vision of the calla lilies and your ideas. its too bad you are so far away b/c it would be wonderful to put your vision to life and tattoo it on you.

thanks. i usually try to do things more realistic, but that time i wanted to try more of a funky color idea with broad watercolor kinda strokes and color that one wouldnt normally use much of.

How long does a tattoo like this take; I know it's broken up into parts. :) I'm just curious about the time line. I'd like something like this, but I think I wouldn't have enough patience/pain tolerance to finish it all lol

i work very fast. this whole tattoo only took about 3 sessions of about 2-2 1/2 hrs each. thats not so bad at all considering the size. but every artist is different. some are fast, some slow. some gentle - like me, and some are diggers. ouch!!!

thanks. i love the colors too. i wanted to do something a little different and do some overly colorful, trippy flowers.
