    Cheers fellas :lol:

    :yesway:
    A lot of people did say "shouldn't you start with something smaller?" - but I didn't want anything smaller. People suggested starting with a smaller part of it even, but I was always going to get the whole thing anyway so :lol:

    Amazing!

    What a great idea for the tattoo, that full body theme is so much nicer than random images like mine.

    Did you taste the ink in your mouth after your done?

    Getting better and better all the time, Double E!




    I demand that you include Argos somewhere in there.

    And perhaps the wine-swilling suitor with an arrow in his neck. That part was great.

    Thanks guys! :D
    I'd always planned to get some smaller details (like 8 story elements maybe) but I don't think I'm going to. My artist is big about making the parts substantial, large, and detailed. Odysseus for example is about 3x bigger than I originally had in mind. I definitely prefer it this way and I'm glad he made a big deal about that - so I think I'm just going to stick with 4 large pieces, Odysseus and Poseidon on the arm as is, and the ship and Scylla across the shoulder.

    Yesterday we got started on the hydra, Scylla..

    This was the most insane session so far. Just under 7 hours I think, with some real heavy work in some nasty places like the collarbone. Just some gaps left to fill with water, and a lot more detail, given that this piece is over twice the size of the others and done almost in the same amount of time!
    I think (I hope) it'll be just one more day left on blackwork before we can colour the whole thing :)

    It's awesome work and I really admire your determination to have all that work done. I think the first one would have made me reconsider doing the rest!
