Time for a tattoo touchup...
Ten Years ago, my forearm Koi Tattoo was drawn under the skin (to use a quote from Eddie Yeary) as a black and white stand alone piece.
Then as the years went by, more tattoo's joined and my arm kind of evolved into a tattoo sleeve with a dragon at the top, samurai dude, fisheys, flag, roses all kinds of weird things (including my kids names written in Klingon - true story). To give the sleeve some kind of continuity, Eddie glued it all together with a washed out blue water scene and added a little shallow yellow to the Black and White Koi - this was nearly five years ago.
Time goes by and I've decided it's time to brighten the whole thing up and add a little *shine* to the forearm fishes. A few emails later and an afternoon is scheduled with Edward and this is the result.
I was a little worried about tattooing the same spot for a third time - but the tattoo colors came out excellent and the forearm piece is perfect. Color me delighted.
