Tiger tattoo

Model: Lindsay
Makeup: Hand painted fake tattoo
Photographer: Sai-Kit Chu and Henry Cheung

I almost forgot I had this picture I meant to upload it with the other one.

Tattoo piece on did on my friend Lindsay. I ended up having to use a different medium than I was used to because I had lost my super expensive palette *dies* but I like to think it tunred out decent. Originally i had wanted it to span over her whole back and do this really huge awesome thing BUT I ran out of time and had to whip up this stencil last minute

There are parts that really bother me *cough*brutal inconsistancy of colour in a few of the stripes*cough* and look nothing like a tattoo but lesson learned and now I know what to expect when using what I did.

Original tiger design: *UsagiTenshi

Of course you can! I'll also be sure to put a credit in for you, I'm glad your happy about seeing this and not offended that I used your design. =]

No no! I wanted for it to be used! The friend who commissioned me for it never ended up using it, so I felt bad having it just sit there. To be honest, I wouldn't have a problem with anyone using any of my tattoo designs, so long as they tell me and send me pics! ;)

-Oh! Except for maybe the snake one, I don't know whether the guy who commissioned that would be mad...
