    Someone on a previous page wanted to see a pic of the top part of my tatt w/ the octopus. Here ya go.

    SHIBBY did I see you are up in NY? I'm born there and would like to get a tatt from someone up there next time I visit.

    Great work. I plan on tattooing my entire right leg with a reef mural. Gonna be very costly and time consuming.
    I recently bought a tattoo kit and started doing a few pieces on myself.
    Here's a Maori style octopus I did on myself a few weeks ago.[​IMG]

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    You did great work. People pay a ton of money for that kind of work.

    Thank you very much, it came out well considering that it's my second time tattooing.

    For your second attempt that piece looks great. Linework a little shaky but for your second go around it's really nice. I'd let you tattoo me! I always liked the maori style. My bucket list is to surf out in New Zealand and get one done the original way..

    I think that looks amazing! Nice work! I can't imagine doing that to myself but then I'm a wimp when it comes to needles :)

    Thanks, I have a lot of tattoos so I'm used to the pain. Everywhere is pretty much tolerable except for ankle, elbow and knee!

    Thanks. yeah my hands are still very shaky, still have to perfect my technique. I would really like to visit different areas of the pacific and have some original work done myself.
