Realistic nails tattoo

I did this on one of those slow boring days at the shop. One of the piercers there is a little crazy so if I get a wierd idea most of the time he'll let me tat him up with it. So this was how my idea of nails sticking out of his collar bone came out. Captain Carl.

(If this sounds harsh I did not intend to)

    The thumbnail lead me to believe it looked realistic, but on closer inspection, it does not appear as realistic,  The nails, shadow of nails, and blood drops don't appear realistic, but I am able to tell what it is. 

   What  I do like about the tattoo is the wounds, which are more realistic than the parts mentioned above.

    I also like the concept of the tattoo. Spontaneous, interesting and does not seem to be something the wearer will regret.  (Most likely due what seems to be a "I'll do it" persona that is coming through the text,)

This is really, good. I cringed when the picture loaded thinking 'who takes a picture of something like this and post it??' Then I realized it wasn't real. Ha ha.

Anyways, good job :)

It's very hard to believe that it's just a tattoo. I think this is one of the most realistic tattoo's I've ever seen. I like the way the nails 'stick' out his skin. Maybe if you're standing right next to him, it's very clear that it's just a tattoo, but looking at it this way..
Very well done! Great job!
