Backpiece progress

More on this previously posted backpiece , 2nd sitting since Marches Scottish Tattoo Convention ,digging away on this, blood sweat and tears all the way

More  on this back piece  

straight of a flight from Canada a quick shower and then another full day sitting on this ,hardcore dedication to the bodysuit tattoo 

Enjoying this one , check previous post for full info on the theme here 
   
   
The mental and financial strains  of the body suit are a true measure of your dedication ,

these days with tattoos being more common and visible ,work on this scale is the next step in maintaining the mystique and awe that tattoos can  possess.

Samurai vs Squid
