Monochromatic Leg Sleeve by danktat Monochromatic Leg Sleeve by danktat
This took 56 hours to complete. Not the best of photos and there is a gap near the knee that hadn't been completed in this photo but you get the idea.

To each his own. It has taken 6 or 7 awards over the past couple of years. Some judges thought it was perfect for her ;)

Wow, nice. The tatto is very riveting, anyway. :] But in my opinion she has a little bit too ugly legs for it.
A little question: you're making this tattos on your own account or using some patterns from f.ex. tattoo catalogues?

I take reference material wherever I find it. I freehand it when I have to, copy when I need to. Whatever. I am only interested in getting the best finished result I can.

As far as the body goes....I don't choose who's body gets what. The client doesn't choose the body they were given. I just do the work to the best of my ability on the skin presented to me :)

I am glad you like it that much. I had a lot of fun working on this one. Had to order so many shades of blue from so many different companies that it was out of control at one point.

thanks again :D

Thanks. The original print was monochromatic blue...so when we continued it to make a sleeve we were kind of stuck doing all blue. Worked out pretty cool I think. Thanks again :)

wait wait, how do tattoos like this one take 56 hours to complete? like i get the fact that they are big and such but do you do half of it themn leave to heal then come back and finish? whats the process?

I typically work anywhere between two and four hours per session. Taking up this much space, 56 hours is actually quite fast as I move a little more efficiently than most tattooists. That stuff you see on tv where they do half a full back in a session is not "reality". The reality is that large projects are much more commitments than "events". You have to return until it is complete. AND you typically don't know how many hours something like this will take when you first start it out.
