Background on tiger 1/2 sleeve into chest panel

Here's a couple views of a tiger 1/2 sleeve into chest panel tattoo I've been working on.
Yesterday I did all the background. It took me 3 hours to do it all. I love when I can do this much work with that kind of speed. The client gets more bangs for their buck, and goes through less pain. I love open big designs and these lend themselves very well to getting big tattooed done fast. All in all this tattoo might take about 10 hours to complete. Very excited to see it completed.

Finished Shi Shi 3/4 sleeve.

I love when a tattoo comes together effortlessly. That's is what certainly happened with this tattoo. It's like it wanted to be there on her arm. Had lots of fun working in this sleeve.

Tried some new things, kept all
My colors very bold, and made the sizing of all the imagery larger. I like the way this looks on the body. You could tell what this was from 2 blocks away.
Anyway, enjoy.

A few one shot tattoos.

I love doing smaller to medium pieces as well. I find it to be nice. I work on a lot of larger pieces that can take a year or several years to complete so sometimes it's nice to have that instant gratification for me and the client. Here's a sampling of a few recent one shots I've done.

Mermaid thigh piece.

Dragon and glowing yin yang coming out of mist on back.

Raven and pine branch on ribs.

Tanuki(Japanese raccoon dog) on ankle.
