I was very pleased with this finished tattoo.
My own design, my color scheme. The client being happy with the result is obviously a perk. Taking more time than usual on some of my more recent tattoos has paid off immensely.
The bustle of life can really throw off your focus, and my clients don’t deserve to be the at the brunt end of that, so I’ve been taking more precautions. Do I feel that I’ve wronged anyone lately? No, of course not. But I think back to my early years, trying to balance technique and working in a timely fashion. Time is certainly not such an important factor when they have the rest of their lives to carry it on their skin. People understand, which is a wonderful thing.
