Hi everyone,

it’s my first post here, been reading some threads and posters have been helpful and positive and thats what I am looking for..

I’ve always wanted tattoos and this summer I finally got my first, back of neck,great experience, its covered most of the time… Just got tattoo #2, another flower.

The tattoo was pretty spontaneous, the location, everything,,, its really visible and taking some getting used to, especially at work. The past couple days I have been feeling pretty self conscious about it…

I loved it at first and now I still like it, I just have no perspective anymore, if that makes sense…? I am feeling like I need more tattoos to balance my arm out, its like one big flower on my upper wrist and feels like its not complete, let me try and post a pic.. I would love to hear nice things about it an suggestions on completing it, the flower needs more leaves and considering more shading and possible other additions…. Want constructive feedback…

I love art nouveau style and considering an American traditional woman’s face above the rose or birds, wanting ideas on placement also..

I have some other questions if anyone is up for answering, thank

It looks clean and well done but kind of boring. Definitely needs more foliage

Thanks everybody ๐Ÿ™‚ I made an appointment to get more tattoos ๐Ÿ™‚ I drew on myself and definitely adding leaves to the rose.

Anyone have suggestions on shading? I would like to add more to it, more darker color and would grey shading be wierd? I get intimidated explaining things to the tattooer, I could use your expertise before my appointment! Thx all and thx for the welcomes! โค

Looks nice, in my opinion a more Alphonse Mucha styled lady would be more appropriate with how feminine the flower is. Traditional can be very strong next to other styles. I definitely think Art Nouveau would suit it well.

I am going with flora and fauna on this part of my arm, would love any ideas on that regarding the birds, I am wanting black, do not want to be full of color tattoos but a few here and there…

I like your plan, except I’m for full vibrant colors.
