Benito has been a great client, coming to me for several years-- on the recommendation of one of my other clients (now deceased)-- and we have worked on some excellent tattoo projects over the years. This year we are working on a totally new piece for his right arm-- a Dinosaur sleeve that features five different types of dinosaurs in fossilized form, popping out from a lush jungle back drop, with an exploding volcano in the upper background. He says he's always loved dinosaurs, "ever since I was a kid, and I still think they're pretty cool. Can't wait until the color's in and it's [the sleeve] finished!"
Here are some pictures of his drawings, outline, gray shading and final color (which is not done yet) stages.
