stargazer lily

im so used to doing flowers in color, it was great to do it differently for once. it works well in black n grey, i think.

ive got a few tattoo projects that im in the middle of doing using nothing but black n grey lilies like this one or a few other flowers, and to tell you the truth, i like them better than the full color flowers. id love to do something like this on you.

did you blood line the whole thing your lines are almost unnoticeable fantastic work
asussman's avatar
ive never bloodline anything in my whole career. whether its color or black n grey, if there are no outlines then i merely start at the bottom and work my way up to the top, completing everything as i move upwards. i create edges with my mag at an angle. otherwise ill only use a liner needle on a few fine details and white.

Beautiful work as usual, although stargazers are my favorite flower, and I just think they should be in color, but I love color, so that's just me.
asussman's avatar
yeah, normally i would VERY MUCH prefer it in color, but she was adamant about it and didnt want the colors to fade over time (pake pinks and whites) and then when i met her, i saw that she is a bit on the darker side. so quite honestly, for her dark complexion, it was a wise choice.

Well, it's beautiful regardless, and you know what your black and grey work does to me! ;)
asussman's avatar
