Good idea for a thread. I'm getting a snake for my front piece (kicking off in nov). Maybe a kuniyoshi style warrior fighting a giant snake.

Do people like scales or no scales? For me, I prefer the look of clearly delineated scales... Like that cobra. Looks awesome.

Looking forward to your progress, and regarding scales or not - I like them both! Variety keeps it interesting.

Snakes! Love 'em so much. Maybe too much. I have three, and I'm really trying to stop. One on my back by Jill Bonny, one on my elbow by Scott Sylvia and the aforementioned weirdo battle royale by Jeff Rassier:

i did this a few months ago

Now that is a killer snake!

As far as scales vs no-scales, I love em both. In my opinion it gives a very different look to the whole tattoo. I got a scale-less snake and its awesome, when I go for a bigger piece I want to get a scaled cobra somewhere (ribs maybe?)

@SStu I've looked at the picture of that cobra tattoo so many times, and last weekend I was lucky enough to see it in person :D

London convention?

Was the guy getting more work done, or just showing off? :)

It's on Todd Noble. He saw my Grime tattoo and said "that's sweet, but mine's better" and pulled off his shirt.

Chris Garver does killer snakes. I met Frank Romano at the Seattle Convention about three years ago, and he has an awesome cobra that Chris did on his stomach. And the one he did on Tim Hendricks is bad as shit as well.

William Yoneyama knows how to lay down a snake or two.

That big torso cobra is about the best damn snake I've ever seen. Why do I feel like the client brought Noble's Grime cobra to William and said, "Top this"?
