Cherry Blossom Tattoo

EDIT: Here is the final touch up pic with added black centers: [link]

I went today and got my new tattoo redone. I only 'liked' the way it looked before. Now I LOVE it! :giggle: .

Again since it is fresh the colour is kinda shiny and it looks washed out, I'll retake when it heals.

I got rid of all the hot pink colour, added more flowers, made the colour that was there look more flower like, added some stamen centers, and the kanji.


The kanji says 'Life is Beautiful'. (or rather the top on says 'life' and the bottom one says 'beauty' if you want to get nitpicky). :giggle:

Here is the old version: [link]

That is both beautiful and awsome at the same time! Love it.

Might use it for inspiration in an upcoming design...

Thanks! This is one of my favs. Just make sure you find an artist that can do without the heavy black outline!
