New ink by Luca Natalini. I asked for a hiking/nature piece with a trail leading up my arm and perhaps 1 or 2 hikers (me or me/wife) and one of my dogs. I said these were just ideas and ultimately, I wanted him to design it his way. The sketch he presented was not at all what I expected – and honestly it was a little hard to tell what was going on since it was a sketch – but he’s one of my favorite artists so I put my faith in him. This is the result after 7.5 hours of machine time. When he comes back to the US (no later than next year I hope), he’s going to add some more detail and touch it up.
Nice! The contrast really adds depth to the piece!
It really reminds me of Hummels, in a good way! Just beautiful!
nice piece, congratulations
Are you happy with it?
Yeah, absolutely, but it’s going to kill me waiting for him to return to the US to tidy it up and add the fine details. He went out of his way to do this much in 1 sitting though, so he did what he could.
Hes done a grand job!
That’s really nice. It has great depth and a realistic component without being a photorealistic tattoo. It’s great that you allowed such a creative artist to add his spin on your concept. Congrats, man. Was this done at off the map?
