Default Think I'm finally done with this tattoo

Well... Maybe...

Been working on getting this one finished for over a year now. My artist thinks it could use something over the banner, but still debating on what would bring it all together. The dead zombie-ish bird is still fresh. Decided to take a pic of it this morning before I put more aquaphor on it. The other bird is completely healed and looks so bright!

Sorry the birds look a little squished. Hard to take a pic of my chest by myself.

The quote on the banner reads, "The question is not how we will die but how we will live."



The next piece I'm working on is going to be part of my sleeve. Going to do a native american piece since I'm part Apache.

That is beautiful also more kudos for bearing the necessary skin to have it done, I always wanted a chest piece ... But was never brave enough (because if the skin I had to show) to do it.

You're a beautiful woman, you should never have a problem finding help for a photo like that.

Impressive! Both the tattoo and the message.

LOL

Very nice, I'd love to see what the artist is thinking for the top. I am trying to add to my rib piece but I'm not sure what yet. Of course I can't nearly afford any work for a while so I will get my kicks watching others get ink.

I have some suggestions for PDX tattoo people when you need them....

I have a couple ideas for a chest piece, but I am still on the fence about having a chest piece.

Amber, you did real good on this one. I love it.

Thanks so much guys! I'm going to talk to my artist about what she thinks would look nice in addition... she was thinking something simple just to bring it all together but wasn't sure exactly what at the time.

My next piece I'm going to start is my native american piece that's going to be part of my sleeve. I'm part Apache (American obviously but native american heritage) and really want something that represents that side of me since I feel like I really connect with my native american background more than anything. Also, my maiden name is Grisler from my dad's side (German background). Everyone calls us the grizzly bears since it's pronounced Grisz-ler.

So... I'm going to this same artist since I LOVE her work and it's going to be a native american girl in war paint. She's going to be wearing a bear skin cloaked over her with the bear head over her head partly. I'm going to include a fox as well because I have this thing with foxes (see a fox in most of my dreams in some way or another) and I'm still debating what I want to include in it. It's going to be the forearm part of my sleeve.
