Tattooing often involves adapting and personalizing designs to fit a client's body and preferences. In my recent project, I worked with a client who was inspired by skull and snake flash art but I wanted to change the design that can be uniquely their own.
This is the original flash design. When I did a mock up on my client's skin, it doesn't quite fit well with her other existing tattoos. You can see a bit of overwrap where the butterfly is and the snake head is wrapping too much. So I decided to change the design a bit.
Here's new design and mockup. I like it because it fits perfectly on my client's body and leave just right amount of gap with her other tattoos.
This is the final result! I am very happy with this final look. It took about 4 and a half hours in total. Here's a breakdown of the equipment and techniques I used to bring this piece to life:
