I tattooed a Phoenix on the back of Nick’s calf so of course I tattooed a Dragon on the front. I drew it on because it just makes more sense than stenciling. I also forgot to draw the night before, so drawing the dragon directly onto the leg seemed smart.
Smearing a sharpie with my thumb is a good way to stain my fingers. I like to smear the marker to help shade an atmosphere. The dragon was from my sketchbook. I just redrew it onto the skin.
Above is the phoenix I tattooed on the other side of his leg. I like doing a lot of texture and patterns. I’ll be bringing background around the whole leg.
