      THIS IS A SITE FOR ARTISTS, NOT CLIENTS (Please read before posting)   04/18/2018

      I'm seeing a lot more questions from people who are looking to get tattoos, asking about ideas, healing instructions, etc. These are questions you should ask YOUR  LOCAL TATTOO ARTIST, not random people on the internet. This site is specifically for tattoo artists and those looking to get into the trade by way of an apprenticeship. Don't be shy! Google local artists and drop by a shop or two, check out their portfolio of work and talk about your ideas with a professional who can help you achieve the best tattoo experience. 

       Thanks for reading!

Overall, not a bad start; just has room for refinement.  There's a few places where the shading doesn't meet  a line. Could use more shading going around the side of the skull to give it more form.  And the one piston needs to be darker to separate it from the skull. 

I have a hang up about illustrated objects have to be able to exist in three dimensions.  To that end, those pistons couldn't really be set into the eye sockets at that angle.  BUT, I've seen a lot of great tattoos whose imagery defies perspective; so my personal hang up may be to my disadvantage.
