THE LITTLE MERMAID 1ST SESSION

CLICK ON THE PHOTO ABOVE FOR A FULL SCREEN IMAGE.

 

This tattoo was well planned and thought out before the client even entered the studio.  Reference was brought in including printed photos of characters with notes on them, a zip drive containing reference collected over a long period of time and the movie itself for inspiration. 

The start was a 7 hour outline around the entire thigh that was not even completely finished in the first sitting.

The second session was to complete the outline and start on some color.  The Third, Forth and Fifth session have been working on each individual character.  Each appointment lasting up to 7 hours. Our sixth, seventh and eighth session has been working on background.

We finished at 60 hours total. Check back for finished / healed photos in Lisa's Color Portfolio
