Owl Tattoo on hand

I drew this owl on the girls hand with a bic pen based off a photo she had. 4 hour session. Poor thing passed out 3 minutes into it... but she's a trooper for sticking it out.

What a simply gorgeous tattoo! The owl is so lifelike and intense, I love it. The shading is beautiful and the little bits of white highlighting give it the perfect touch. I am so stunned by just how real that beak looks. This is not a tattoo I would think of getting on my hand, and yet you worked it so perfectly it is just wonderful! I am sure she is going to love it forever. I am just about to start an apprenticeship at a shop and I hope one day I am this good.:blackrose:

Wow. This is extremely detailed. It's hard to draw this on paper, but as a tattoo? Amazing job.

I have one question though. Don't these kind of detailed tattoos fade into a big black spot over the years?

I always go through your gallery and think about how great it would be to get some work done by you. I've been thinking about something that incorporates an owl, after seeing this, I feel I NEED to get something done by you now! ;)

Great job!

This piece of art is amazing. The intesity on the wild hunting owl's eyes was captured perfectly. A fantastic display of skills between lights and shades gives this tattoo a high quality worthy of wearing with pride. For the girl passing out its a shame she didnt get to see the process but I guess it was for the best.

Thank you for sharing, Cheers!

Oh no, she was only out for about 30 seconds or so. She watched everything. Let me tell you, she's one of the most amazing artists I've ever seen...wait till she start tattoing.
