Lotus Pond Leg
Handpoked Tattoo

This is a piece in progress. This design will have the lotus pond continuing up the leg. The roots underwater will wind up from their toes connecting to an older tattoo I did for them, and then the lotuses will emerge from the water to bloom in a variety of colors representing Buddhist values and principles of Dharma. These are the lotuses with only the first few passes of handpoking to clarify the design. In following sessions the lines will darken, the rest of the design will be added, and full color will be the final step of their finished piece. This client lives far away so it will be some time before I'm able to continue sessions, but I'm very excited to continue working of this beautiful design and concept.
