Snakes snakes snakes

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.

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? :)

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"?

    • Welcome. I think a lot of things can have an affect on felt pain... placement, your state of mind, general health, etc.  Do what they recommend, rest, good meal before, hydrated, take a snack along and you'll be fine.  Just stay calm and don't make it worse than it is.  Maybe let everyone know where you're getting it for more specific advice.
    • I’m pretty new to this site so sorry if i don’t really understand how to work it, but i’m getting my second tattoo tomorrow and i’m excited but also nervous because it’s a different body part i’ve never gotten tattooed before AND it’s a different design and style of tattoo than my first so i’m not sure what to expect besides the feeling of getting repeatedly stabbed by a needle lol. I’m mostly just nervous about the pain where it’s going to be located, i’m not expecting it to be painless because let’s be real pretty much all tattoos have some pain.
