From start to finish it was about two and a half to three hours!

I had a couple breaks...but not very long so most of that time was spent

drilling on my head! I was determined I was not going to tap out!!!

I can tell you this......it hurts....at least for me it did! ;)

Actually...."Snow Lion"....Wikipedia is the first place i went to look when Dave called and said he wanted to do this instead of a dragon!

"From 1909 until 1959 a single snow lion or a pair of these mythological animals were used as national emblem of Tibet on the coins, poststamps, banknotes and the national flag of Tibet"

I really loved the drawing but I am really actually loving the tattoo the more I read about what it all signifies!

Awesome snow lion. Definitely on my list. Its one of the four dignities (along with dragon, tiger and garuda). The 4 aspects of a Bodhisattva. Snow lion is unconditional cheerfulness, a mind free of doubt. Powerful symbol. Love it.

thanks for the info!

I finally just googled it and found some of that on the wikipedia definition!

I love it...and it is healing really well.....I wasn't quite sure how well or fast it would heal but it is doing great!

the lady and her friend were in the shop getting tattoos

so i had to go up there and say hi...and just like i hoped one of the other tattooers wasn't busy

it's awesome getting something from a tattooer that's been doing it since before many of us were even born

also awesome that he's perfectly happy tattooing it just like it is on the sheet, and he'll take his time even though it's just a little piece of flash

    • I ended up sketching out an idea I had in mind since I couldn't quite find something I liked
    • Are there any websites or online guides for symbolic meaning behind flowers? Preferably green or purple flowers. I love lotus flowers (plus I have a good bit of Indian in me, from India) but they're done SO MUCH. The flower would be in the upper right hand side of my chest, close to my collar bone and shoulder since that's where my cancer port scar is
    • Hello! I am Gracy. I am a recent SVA graduate and I hopefully look forward to getting an apprenticeship in the future.  Here is my website with the flash I have done: https://realgraceevalentine.wixsite.com/website/tattooflash I came here to obtain feedback on different topics, but for now, I need feedback from other tattoo artists or enthusiasts about something.  Recently, the Kyoto Animation studio has been destroyed due to arson, and lives have been lost.  I am considering making tattoo flash to sell to fans, all inspired from different anime made by KyoAni. My intent is to raise money by selling this flash, and all proceeds will go to an official GoFundMe for the KyoAni recovery. My worry is that some people will take the designs and get it tattooed without paying, and it would be unfair to those who paid.  What advice would anyone give before I proceed with this?  I would appreciate any responses (honest and respectful please. This is a serious topic.) Thanks!
