I don't have a premium membership yet so the "critique feature" is closed to me.

Still, here it goes :twocents:

Over all I think this is a brilliant design! The black fill looks thoroughly saturated with out any holidays or traps between the line. I like the way the tail and hoof echo the muscle line two inches below. To best take advantage of the collector's anatomy I think this piece could have been blown up 20% bigger so those lines would rest on the muscle group.

Looking at the trap under the head/shoulder section of the design I see a slight trace of blue. To help preserve narrow traps and disguising minor blow outs without sculpting the black shape any further, I would suggest outlining the entire design with white ink or flesh tone in a touch-up session. This will also help preserve the separation between the figure's thumb and hand. Warm colors also work well for outlining (as opposed to cool colors like blue or green which), but sometimes the sitters are adamant about maintaining a color free collection.

Hope that was helpful. I'd like to stress again that this is a good tattoo of shop quality and that it isn't my intention to "pick it apart" but rather point out areas of opportunity.
