Here is another shot: [link]

My Cherry Blossom Tattoo with the latest set of touch ups. I'm going to add to this one day, but that's a few years down the road, I'm also going to do something in the same style on the other side in bamboo.

The Kanji says Life is Beautiful (or rather 'Life' and 'Beauty';)

I'm finding it hard to really get a good shot of this tattoo since it has no dark outlines, it looks like it's been airbrushed on. A lot of people ask me if it is real.

I love your tattoo! I would love to see a complete picture, because i want it in me :P can you upload it?

If you go to your local good tattoo artist and show them this pick they'll be able to do something simmilar. I'd rather you not get the *exact* same tattoo as this was a custom job.

I positively adore your tattoo. If i was to get Cherry Blossoms (which is high on my list) i would want yours. It's elegant and realistic. Does it extend down your back? I'm curious. :]

Thanks! Just find someone willing to do no heavy outlines! It does go down my shoulder blade, I have plans to expand it across my shoulders and over the other side.

I need to gather some money in order to do it. I want the other side to blend into a bamboo in the same style.

That is gorgeous! I am so jealous. Did you design it yourself?
Phoenix-Cry's avatar
Thanks! I told the artist what I wanted and he drew it on there free hand
OnlyFi's avatar
Straight onto your skin?! Holy llamas! Does he have a website?
Phoenix-Cry's avatar
He drew it on with a marker and then tattooed it in. He left his shop, so I don't know where to find him anymore.
