The Canvas, Filling

By opioid
28K Views
self portrait.
second of a series documenting my side piece.

since it is about the tattoos i focused this time on the tattoo machine using my 50mm f1.4 lens. i tried to keep my body in such a way that it is the next step after the canvas, to express the process of having art inked onto your body, even pressing my leg into the cushion to get the shadows out of the pulled fabric. as this is the second of a 3-stage process, i thought including the tattoo machine might be fun.

a total "in process" kind of concept.

thanks to *LazyGunn for feedback on choosing the final version! :heart:

this is the finished tattoo, keep an eye out for the last installment of this series now that the tattoo is complete :)
