I searched and couldn't find anything. What stuff has been blowing your mind lately? (other than the fact that there hasn't been a thread about this yet)

I think any large scale Thomas Hooper work is mind boggling. Especially the large pattern work. I find my self wondering how many times was the stencil laid? How many stencils? If their were several stencil what parts did he draw in? And then once you have all that on, just make the lines right? Seriously amazing stuff.

CALLING @Iwar!

Along those lines, I really love seeing those torso tattoos that almost look too big for the space.

Cool thread!

That first piece is killer, but her right hand and left arm looks a little bit strange to me. Maybe just the picture, or maybe just me... I don't know. The piece as a whole looks really bad-ass though!

Most of you have already seen my front piece, but I found a better picture of it on Marius' blog a while back, so here's to those who haven't seen it already (sorry about the insane size of the photo)

I see what you mean about her left arm in the first post, but I'm thinking the dudes chesticles might have distorted it

If the moon is behind the building, what's the blue light source on her hands?

I was just talking about the bend in her arm looking all wonky, but now that I go back and look that makes no sense either.

Ive been trying to total it, but I started in June 2010 and we got this far June 2011 and kinda have put it off to start a sleeve but I think this year we are going to complete it. I know the outline took 5 hrs and then shading is about 5ish with about 2-3 more hours to go.

    • Hey Folks! So as most of us do I have decided I would like to expand one of my current tattoos. I am aware it would have been much better to map out a full back piece from the start but unfortunately that isn't an option for me anymore.  As you can see I have a symmetrical owl on my upper back with lots of extra room on my lats all the way down to my waist line. I have a fair bit of a V taper so anything I add would need to flow in a way that made the owl the dominant subject of the whole tattoo.  I am looking for any advice or suggestions around what could work. Pictures of ideas or themes would be great! Thanks everyone :)
