This is a cover-up of a large color tattoo of the goddess Diana - with a larger version of the goddess Diana.  I will probably refine the color and shading a bit when it has healed up, but we are essentially there :)

The customer brought in this sketch of a duck and got tattooed on her arm, just as it was - not every tattoo has to be tightly-rendered :)

She already had the bird - we spent an hour or so figuring out how best to frame it and eventually came up with this - totally fun to design and totally nail-biting to execute.

Hope she comes back so I can see how it looks healed :)
