Scott's Dragon Tattoo is now a reality!

A few months back my friend Scott asked me to design a bio-mechanical dragon tattoo for his left arm and shoulder. I feature the artwork earlier on in this blog. Now the tattoo's black and white ink is finished, and it looks phenomenal! Scott had it done at Baja Tattoo down in Cabo San Lucas, by Carlos, the owner of Baja Tattoo. It was a marathon 12 hour session, since Scott wanted to get the whole thing done while he was down there, and only had one day to do it before he left to come back to Vancouver.

Carlos did an amazing job staying true to my artwork, which was very detailed and complex, with a great deal of intricate shading. Scott will be getting some colour added, mostly to the background, negative space around the tattoo. Apparently Carlos has something very specific in mind, and I can't wait to see the final tattoo!
