I got my Fantastic Mr. Fox tattoo… FINALLY!!!! After 11 months of talking about it and dreaming about it, I saved up and went in and got it done at Skinquake by the FANTABULOUS Colin McClain!! I cannot say enough about Colin’s dedication and skill. He designed this tat and decided on all the shading and I couldn’t be happier!!
For those that have never gotten a tattoo before, the process starts with a stencil… you tell the artist if you like the placement, size, etc. Make your changes NOW. Do not feel ashamed to have them replace it. This will be on your body permanently! Your artist wants to make you happy, so please tell them if you want to change something about your design.
And then the black ink! Honestly, the outline hurts far worse than the shading! Once you’re done with this part, you’re over halfway there! I really love how the frame came out… the black looks perfectly Victorian and it really helps the Fantastic Mr. Fox stand out!
And then comes the color… wasn’t that easy and absolutely FANTASTIC! ;) Word of the post, really! haha. It looks wonderful, it feels raw, and you walk away with your very own art piece! Honestly, I love my tattoos… they are a part of me and how I express myself. Wouldn’t change them for the world!
