I'm getting in 2 week a piece by Dane Soos at Inkamatic, Trieste. I posted about elsewhere but basically it's an old schol woman inside a sipder-web and a spider hanging from the web and a couple of flowers to balance the composition.

The best tattoo you can get is two animals fighting.  Unless you get three animals fighting.

Originally I thought of snake, tiger and eagle.  I had originally thought of that but I figure maybe with just 2 animals, they could stand more prominent.

That's gonna be awesome.

I have the appointment for my next tattoo (neotraditional portrait thingy of my all time favourite singer) coming up on Friday and I'm deeeep into pre-tattoo jitters. Wish I didn't get like this every single time :D. What if I don't like the design, what if it comes out different from what I'm expecting, etc. My first bigger piece with colour and a new artist (whose style is generally a little different from what I'll be getting), too. Wish me luck, please :)!

Freddie Mercury. I'm dying to see the initial sketch, my artist has been incredibly nice so far so I'd be even more bummed if I didn't like it.

3 weeks till my appointment, my first time having something more complicated drawn up for me, so excited and a bit apprehensive to see the design :) 

Should cover most of my lower back, more geometric blackwork and Studio Ghibli movie references.

That sounds super cool! I love both geometric blackwork & Studio Ghibli, please oh please post some pics here when it's done!

You'd get more responses if you post in your own thread, but I'll bite. You'll probably need a couple sessions of laser to open up more opportunities for a cover up. Most of it is pretty light, but there's a couple darker spots and a lot of lines. As usual, I recommend a black panther to cover it!

@nikkz ok so i might be in the minority but i love your tattoo

i get it that you could focus on its many issues

but i think its totally interesting - though a bit hard to read

i mean -  i'm not sure what I'm looking at but whatever

i dig it

so my advice is leave it

love it

get another tattoo

maybe one a bit stronger in composition and execution though :)
