I recently wanted to expand my medium, so I bought tattoo equipment. I've done a few tattoos on my leg first to get a feel for needle depth and technique. So far so good. I've started a new piece on a friend. He wanted a plain jane tribal dragon. I told him we needed to spice it up a bit if I was gonna do it. So this is what I came up with. Note that the black dragon will be skin tone, not black. So in a sense, everything will be inverted on the skin. The first pic is the sketch from flash art. The second is the outline.

Great piece of flash...I love the dragons. My right arm is sleeved with them. Where did you purchase your equipment? Superior has some pretty great deals on their website...

I don't remember, monster steel is ringing a bell.. I'm about to order some new guns though.

It would look cool if you did the dragon black like it is in the picture too. I always like when tattoo artists spice up old classics.
