Cherry Blossom Tattoo by Phoenix-Cry Cherry Blossom Tattoo by Phoenix-Cry
EDIT: Here is the final touch up pic with added black centers: [link]


I went today and got my new tattoo redone. I only 'liked' the way it looked before. Now I LOVE it! :giggle: .

Again since it is fresh the colour is kinda shiny and it looks washed out, I'll retake when it heals.

I got rid of all the hot pink colour, added more flowers, made the colour that was there look more flower like, added some stamen centers, and the kanji.

Squeee!!

The kanji says 'Life is Beautiful'. (or rather the top on says 'life' and the bottom one says 'beauty' if you want to get nitpicky). :giggle:

Here is the old version: [link]

He tells me he's uncertain about getting the name right and would hate to make an ink mistake! However he sent me a great website! [link]

It's understandable though. I thought it was airbrushed until I saw your comments. My tattoo is mostly black but I'd like to get something without har lines, it's beautiful.

Yup! Just make sure you find an artist who has done it before!

You know it's not all that painful, but I would suggest waiting till 18 for such a large piece and make sure you research your artist! :giggle:

Thank you very much! That's exactly what I was going for. I have had this touched up since this photo and added black centers to the flowers. This is actually the combined work of two artists, one in FL and another in MN. Here is a pic all healed up:[link]

Thanks! You know I don't think tattoos really hurt very much. I've had this touched up since (added black centers to the flowers), I should do a new shot.
