Shiny as a new tattoo

My tattoo is healing nicely and you can see some images here. Yes, it's a real tattoo and not paint. Tattoos don't have to be black.

My tattoo is a replica of hedera ivy. I enjoy gardening and I really like hedera ivy. I'd been thinking about an ivy tattoo for almost ten years, so I decided it was finally time to act. This was my first tattoo and I wanted a photo-realistic one. It took about 3 hours to do, which we broke up into two sessions.

I'm very pleased with my tattoo, and I was fortunate to find such a talented artist to do my work. The artist is Dan Sartor aka Reverend Dark and you can find his tattoo work here and his artwork here.
