    yeah I realized that after posting that it was an album cover, looks like shit to me but im a grumpy old git apparently. Try drawing something original that's within your capabilities,I seen your rose and you even made that look painful. take smaller steps and you'll get there in the end. After I read your post on the sublime sun thing I got a bit worried when you said you were ready to stencil it......please tell me you're NOT gonna transfer that to stencil paper to tattoo on someone?

    The concept is there but it needs to be more symmetrical it just looks like a lop-sided doodle and the moustache thingy is way off. Nothing wrong with using a protractor ,a glass or a plate for a circle if it’s gonna help 😉

    Darker skin = stick with clean colors and be aware that they will heal significantly muted. So if there's going to be green on your tattoo, the tattooer will probably use a bright green that will heal looking like a darker, leaf/olive green. Yellows look mustard, reds look like brick (relatively)

    I swing the machine around every which way; so the exact positioning of the grip in your hand won't really matter once you're working out an actual design. Whatever helps you keep the tip stable without applying a death grip is the right way to do it.

    Not enough "awww, you poor thing" from us, I believe. Not everyone can grow a decent beard, Mac. You may have upset him with that.

    So this is a tattoo you applied, and an unfortunately poor application. The shading on the body is no good, but some of it's fixable. Looks like you're working with three tones: black, medium and skin. There's no actual shading on the body to show form, just an attempt to show the striations in the muscles with one grey tone and an 8 round. The other shading is jet black; giving him the world's skinniest foreshortened forearm and a wonky floating drop shadow under his fist. When it heals, the calligraphy background is going to show the thin outline in some spots when it should be "line-less" to appear as brushwork. First lesson in Tribal 101 is don't leave a gap between your outline and your fill.
