As many of you know, every Friday ModBlog features a follow-up post for scarification pieces. It’s made possible thanks to the contributions of artists, as well as those who have the art on their skin. What we don’t see a lot of is images of tattoos in progress, sent in alongside the completed tattoo. Thanks to Hoiers, and his submissions, this week we can show you a piece as it transitions from line work and shading, to a full colour piece.
This koi is by Artjoms Saviljevs from Rigas Tinte in Riga, Latvia. As you can see in this first image, the majority of the outline is done, as is some of the grey shading.
And here’s what it looks like with a splash of colour added.
You can check out more of the artist’s work in the oriental-style tattoo gallery.
