I love all your work! I really really do. I've been trying out a tattoo portfolio and your work is very inspiring. Do you do designs only or do you actually tattoo people too? 

Please never stop doing what you're doing. I just can't stop looking through your designs.

Thank you! :hug: That means a lot!
I only draw designs, though I did tattoo for three years before deciding that it wasn't really for me. I like drawing the tattoos and getting tattooed but I do nooooot like being a tattoo artist lol. xD

What about tatooing people did you not really like? I like hearing everyone's opinion on it.

So beautiful !! Your tattoo designs are always very well composed. :) I love the colors, and I'm not normally a koi person because you do see them alot, but the style of your piece is original. ^ ^ Also thank you for the info about the tracing paper from a few weeks ago, very helpful !!

I understand you feelings about Koi, I'm not a huge fan of them myself (mostly because I'm terrified of fish lol), but I like the symbolism.
