koi-tattoo by URM koi-tattoo by URM
acrylic on canvas. 50 *70 cm (20 '28 inch)

tools: airbrush, brush, lots of water and sponge
------------------------------------------------------------------
didn't take too long to paint, I spent the most time to make the tattoo as realistic as possible.

this painting is for an art-exhibition I'm having with two friends :icontwistmyflesh::iconsurrealismo-volador:

god thats a beautiful piece  i love it---- almost wish it were real 


darn  fine 

 tattoo  lesson to you all folks     if your considering getting one or more   

hard rule  1  if your gonna get a  tattoo  dont  do it haphazard with a bunch of   tattoos all over  your body that dont even match or go together 
hardrule 2 dont scrimp go big and very detailed and just do one  if its like this tattoo you WONT need anymore
soft rule 3 not a hard rule  but still worth considering use only 1 color preferably black  the other colors fade and look like crap after a few years

Wow, I thought this was a photo for the longest time. Would you, per chance, mind completing the design on her back, for me? I would love to commission it and get this tattoo as it is shown here. Please contact me via note or respond to this comment.
