……Being a tattoo artist myself I can appreciate the details in this, Beautiful ink work, good linear style, Not a fan of colour, as I believe a lot of the details get over looked, so I like it just as it is, maybe I would have put more shading in the dragon, but seeing as you are colouring it, it wouldn't have mattered...Awesome Work!
I'm not fan of colored (or gray) tatooes so I'm more in love with the dragon but the subject itself and it's look is gorgeous! I always loved the dragon/phoenix chinese image and this tattoo depicts them perfectly: congrats for your tattoo" ^^
I finally got the phoenix colored. When the dragon was just colored i sorta felt the same, but with both of them colored it completed them, and i love it. I need to get a picture up of them both colored.
