Just finished this up yesterday and am fairly pleased with it. A peek into my tattoo design process: it’s going on the client’s upper arm, so I requested a photo of the exact area and created a digital mockup before drawing anything – the idea here is that the piece will cover most of the upper arm and the legs and filigree will wrap around a bit. The mockup is too hideous to show you, though.
Below are two possible color variants, and the original ink. Client seems to be leaning toward the violet at the moment, as am I.
