Your tattoo is AWESOME and a really good choice! Thanks for sharing it with us!
Yesterday I startet with my first tattoo! It's also an dragon on my back! Not huge as yours! The session took 4hours, and it hurts!

love the details man! awesome!!
eventhough it is not even close to being finished, this is ALREADY a masterpiece!!
Just staring at this piece makes me stress! how do you go from sketch/design to tattoo??!! especially a design that is fully covering someone's back? seriously awe-striking amazing!!! the contrast between darks and lights is perfect!! beautiful composition and flow... (basically what im saying is: WOW!)

When you do a peice that big do you gray line everything,the whole stencile,or do you do it sections?
asussman's avatar
this particular tattoo that required solid lines, i drew the whole thing first with markes right on his back, then i did outline the whole thing and then do faint gey lines for the other stuff that didnt require solid lines. other tattoos that dont require outlines, ill just tattoo sections at a time to completion, then move on to a new section.
