Goukin's Orochi Back- Part 2 by NocturnalHouse Goukin's Orochi Back- Part 2 by NocturnalHouse
This is my back after my second session with my tattooist yesterday (April 1st '05), so bare in mind that at the moment it is workin on turning into a nice scab and prolly will look a bit different from when it is healed. But not much i hope!

Soooo this is a culmination of approx 9 hours work, aiming to get it finished in one more 4 hour session, got to obviously finish colouring the kimono and the hair, yoshi!

As for colouring the kimono's pattern, i'm leaving that to a later date, so stay tuned!

It's a modified picture that I found, i'm not sure if the original is official kishimoto art though.

Hey, new deviant here, checked out your tattoo as planning one on the front of my body, covering one breast, down to just below my hips. Am designing it myself...so trying to get it just right.
just thought i'd commend you...its a real nice design, and i like the free flowing feeling. On a scale of 1-10...just how painful was it?

Sounds like your aiming to get a large piece, i like it! Have patience and take your time to get it just right like ye said, thats my advice, and don't let the cost factor influence your decision, get it done properly!

Now lets talk about pain.....to be honest having my back tattooed didn't bother me much, i'd give it a consistent 5 out of 10 for annoyance, but there was a few moments, when the needle went just left of my spine, that made me move uncontrollably, and i had to consciously make an effort to stay still - it was such an uncomfortable feeling, and for those moments i'd give it 9 out of 10, but they were very few and far between :drool: According to my tattoist, one side of a person's back always hurts more than the other, and the lower you go the worse it is.

Top pain spots are your rib cage, spine and shins, i've got two out of the three (back and right leg) i think getting tattooed down the front of my right shin hurt more than anywhere else, but don't let the pain factor put you off getting what you want done, you might be the type of person who has no problem getting tatted at all, pain is different for everybody + a good tattooist won't hurt you half as much as a bad one! Know your tattooist! Good luck!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! YAY! That looks awesome, haillll to you for getting orochimaru. lol. I can't wait to get my tattoo....damnnnnn!! Its like 2 hours to the nearest tattoo parlour, its in a whole other town. But that won't stop me, plus you really inspired me to get a Naruto tattoo. I had always wanted one, but was rather leery about it. But hell, I wanna mark this part of my life, I live by naruto now LOL. I'm not kidding, my friends and I fell into an obsession. Fanart, cosplay, everyday clothes XD, hair styles, the walls in my room lol, ect.
As for the tattoo, that other commenter had a great idea with adding hints of red. Theres something really neat about the colors all together. Like the flowers on his pants, his ponytail and tongue er somethin lol.
Its looking faaab so far, keep updating. I will make sure to post my tattoo up when I can get it :D

I'd encourage you to fly to ur tattooist screaming "Ink meeeeeee!" but then i'm a bit biased, but it sounds like you really want it and are ready to do it, so ask yourself one question, what are you waiting for?! I want to see it NOW!

If you keep watching i'll keep updating :w00t: Thanks for sharing your crazy enthusiasm :clap:

I think it would very cool with some bright red in there.

Alot of black.. but touches of color in the flowers and stuff.

Its a beautiful design!

Yeah i'm feeling that, was thinking along the same lines, perhaps putting red into the straight line parts of the kimono......

Duuuude, I have that same Cartman doll!

And that looks even more beautiful now that the black shading has been added. I couldn't imagine having to go back for multiple sessions for a huge tattoo like that, so...yeah. It's just amazing.

Orochimaru & Cartman, could there be some kind of relation?!?

Glad you're liking the updates, thanks for watching :boogie: i just replied on the forum soo *^_^*

Making multiple trips to see the lovely tat lady is a bit of a chore, but 5 hours in the chair just flys by! Honestly it does. And seeing orochi come more to life is really exciting!
