Well, my first sitting is done. After only about 2 hours we found ourselves at a good stopping place and Wendy moved on to do some touch up work on Jean.
Initially I was expecting to have the Lindisfarne spiral done first, with the cat as a small add-on. However, when we arrived at HB Tattoo yesterday, Wendy indicated she needed more time to clean up the design, but that the cat was ready to go. So we started backwards 🙂 And BIGGER.
I had thought that the celtic cat would always be a smaller piece just due to the size of the image I found, and that it was a secondary addition to my original idea of the Lindisfarne spiral. I was ecstatic to find that Wendy had been able to not only clean it up immensely, but had enlarged it quite drastically too. Though she had taken a few liberties with the design when enlarging it, she was able to nail the look I wanted.
Here are two pictures of my leg project thus far. More to come after this heals and I can go back for the Lindisfarne spiral to be done….
Let me tell you how much the outlining down across my Achilles hurt. DAMN! But, as you can see, think the minor pain for 2 hours was well worth 70 years of enjoyment……
I can’t wait to heal and go back to complete my idea. More pics will be posted once I have them added to my web-site’s gallery, most likely sometime tomorrow.
