Fantasy Dragon work in progress by Louis Santos

I’m very exited to have had the opportunity, to tattoo a full back fantasy dragon, inspired by “Smaug” from the movie “the hobbit” I have designed a new custom dragon specially for him. In this post I have divided the picture in two stages of the tattoo progress. First picture is the tattoo all healed and second picture is fresh. As you can see the tattoo transforms with one more session added. That’s why I believe the judgment of a work in progress is a downfall to some tattoo fans, that expect a piece of art straight out of the first session, witch is possible with most styles, but not realistic. Realistic tattoos are built up by layers, and having faith in your process is essential.
