Ivy Tattoo - Front by rockgem Ivy Tattoo - Front by rockgem
Ok this is my tattoo - completed or the ivy part at least
I designed this myself and the original design can be found here. [link]
It extends from my left hip up and round my side to just below my left shoulder
The outline took a 2 hour sitting and the colours took another 3 hours

Edit: another 3 hour sitting is booked for the 15th July to extend the ivy leaves down along the thigh and add some orange butterflies

why ivy? its my Celtic moonsign (along with the butterfly that is)

The tattoo artist that’s put this design onto my skin is a talented bloke Lee Pound at One shot Charlie’s in Stourbridge

A couple of other pictures of this


And some work in progress shots



The original design

glad you like it - worst part was the bottom of the ribs! :faint: although the sensation of getting tattooed across your stomach after a full English breakfast is also a very odd one!
