@Charmed– I'm definitely a fan of large pieces and heavy coverage. But I have to say that there is sometimes something very dramatic about a single well-placed tattoo, and yours falls into that category. It is like a single painting hanging in the middle of a wall, it sort of focuses the eye. Very pretty!
That being said, the wrapping idea sounds nice.
Alternatively, since you seem to be inclined to get more tattoos, maybe you could move to another part of your body for your next piece, and let this one sit for a while as you ponder ideas for your leg. As @Hogrider said, think about where you want to go with your leg. Do you want an integrated large piece, or a collection of pieces?
Forgot to post this up sooner, but Thomas Hooper had a art showing tonight and I think they are going to be there for a few days, over here in manhattan. I got a print, a shirt and a short talk with Hooper about a future tattoo,
I suggest people stop by to check it out, there is some cool pieces up. Check his blog out for more details.

So it looks like I have finially decided what to finish my right calf off with. Geometric pattern style stuff. I have been lurking through some Thomas Hooper stuff and similar (propbably going with Hooper). So anyone have any good stuff to post or also what do you guys think for the space I am working with.
please don't mind the werewolf hair or razor cuts (not very experienced at shaving my legs)

Looks like a damn good time if you ask me!
This one's for artists and collectors alike. What's the longest you've ever sat for a tattoo and (for artists) the longest you've ever worked on a client?
I've had several 5-hour sessions, which is kinda pushing it, but once, I sat for 9 hours. Without a break. Overnight. File under never again. The worst part is that I didn't really plan for a long session--it just ended up taking forever.
I'm sure some of you have some crazy stories, possibly involving Shige, Filip Leu, and/or Chris Trevino. :)
For the record, the last 4 tattoos I got took under 3 hours, combined. Much more fun!
