Hey Peeps - I got the original tatoo 5 years ago and just recently added the new pieces however it now feels disjointed keen for feedback on how to make it all tie together..

Well, you've got 3 different styles trying to tie together on 1 shoulder. It's dark enough that you probably can't really manipulate that space (without covering it with all black and adding white design), so my guess is you'll need to add significantly around it. And while that ink appears to have been put in there thoroughly, I'd spend some time finding someone with more of an artistic eye for the approach, too.

I would tie it all together once you're done adding chunks and whatnot to it by making one cohesive addition to the gaps in between each section, and around the perimeter of the tattoo where needed, with one or two variants of a gray wash... 

Tie the room all together, but remember: too many accessories will ruin an outfit, so don't go adding baby foot prints or something completely off key with what ya got going on already.

    • @oboogievery nice. Robert Ryan is someone that I really like and would love to get a piece from if it wasn't such a hike.
    • In my opinion, the rose looks very nice until the very middle and then it kinda gets wonky.  The petals on the very center should still be concentric.  They've got like 4 prongs or something... not sure.  The two pieces really don't flow together.  They almost looks like they were plopped down separately, not part of the same composition.  I think what makes it look odd is the rose is 3D with lots of depth and the locket is completely flat and 2 dimensional, no shadows or depth. Sorry, not trying to tear it down or be critical, just relating what I see.  I don't think I'd return to the same artist.
    • Bit of Robert Ryan flash, tattooed by Josh Henderson. Love it.
