Great abstract colour sleeve

I just love this sleeve of abstract Japanese forms (“one arm down, one to go”). The work is by Watson Atkinson at 13 Roses in Atlanta, Georgia. Normally when I post photos here I clean them up, fix the saturation, and so on, but in this case I’m presenting it as is, because I wanted to show just what a cool looking tattoo it is without you wondering whether maybe it was my editing that did it.

    It looks like an abstract stained glass window.

    Anyone have any idea how this might look faded? I’ve often though of getting something done that bright but I fear touch-ups every 6 months…

    i LOVE Watson’s work. I’ve been trying to interview him for a while but he is a very busy man — you can see why!
