A quick hallo from Denmark

Recommended Posts

Long story short - I have been sailing a lot, and finally decided to have a tattoo done. 🙂

The boat is family owned, with the name "Clearwater" on the side. This was done first and the map was added afterwards.

I love how the boat turned out, but I am a bit worried that the map (in the background) looks "unfinished" and unfortunately both me and my local tattoist ss totally lost on how to make it better. The ocean shading was done yesterday. That is why it stands out a bit. 

I have thought of adding the country names on to try and "complete it" but this also makes the piece a bit messy in my opinion.

Do you guys have any ideas? Everything is appreciated.

Maybe a few dots with city names near their position?

If that ocean shading gets too close to the boat I think it's going to get hard to distinguish what's going on. 

Meantime I like it.

Ive attached a 3 years (give or take a month) photo of one of my magpies by Mr Dunning  - just done on the right - today on the left - yes I know it's the wrong way round Actually  - while none of us is getting tattooed - how about a pic of your favourite that you have had inked  (or favourites that you have had inked) and a link to Instagram for the artist  (or artists) what do you reckon?🙂
