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"?

I like this thread a lot and will see if I can get a picture of my Scott Sylvia one....

TRY HARDER.

    • I'm actually born and raised in Cincinnati! My dad is from near Pittsburgh, and I still have a lot of family there but was raised as a fan from the beginning.  My artist was a Bengals fan and grumbled throughout but did a great job!
    • Well, it's been almost a year so now I'm excited to have booked my next piece while on vacation in Austin a month from now! I'm in with Jon Sproul at Moon Tattoo and he's going to be filling in the last remaining spot on my leg, so (once reasonably healed) I'll be posting in both the Latest Tattoo Lowdown and the Squidpants threads. 
    • Here’s my progress so far on my sleeve from Bobby Cupparo @ LOVEMACHINE N.Y.C. We’re about 25 hours in so far - I think we’ve roughly got about that left before the project is finished. I had (and have) ink fallout from black inks so my blacks usually need some touching up.  The lionness was the first piece of the sleeve to be worked on, and was recently worked on this past Saturday. The mandrill is a few months finished at this point. Everything usually gets touched up a slight bit going into each session to address problem areas.
