Was great to finally finish this Oriental Pagoda dragon tattoo for Rhiannon. I have been tattooing her for a few years now as one of my very first tattoos was done on her ribs. The pagoda is a tiered tower with multiple eaves. Built in traditions originating as stupa in historic Asia and further developed in East Asia. We also wanted to incorporate a dragon into the pagoda almost wrapping around the tower. Rhiannon also has a great interest in Oriental styles and is always great to tattoo. I loved having the dragon wrapping around the top area.
Its been a pleasure tattooing Chloe over the years, we first started off with just one mandala on the top of her arm. She then wanted to turn this into a Mandala sleeve. Keeping the black and grey theme all the way with this one also. Each Mandala we have added into this sleeve has a meaning behind it. The way the shapes of each pattern form around the centre differs from each layer. We only need one more session onto the back area of the mandala sleeve then it will be complete. Thanks.
Last drawing of 2014, will be doing that tomorrow, had a great year, thanks to everyone that has been a part of it.
