Hey guys, this is the start of my back piece, would this be considered traditional? I’m also stuck between colour and black and grey, opinions?

  1. Only managed 6 hours, I think that’s my limit as I’ve only ever done 6 before. I credit my artist for getting it all in between me kicking and screaming into a bitten down shirt 😂

  2. Definitely Japanese traditional. Looks super rad. That’s a tough ass sitting for an outline session. I’ve done six hours a handful of times but it was usually for multiple full tattoos. What was the worst part for you?

  3. I am usually all for gray scale, and regret getting my trad pieces in colour. I thing gray scale would be a disservice to the design in this case. It will look amazing in colour.

  4. Holy shit amazing!!! Agree that color in at least the flowers would be great, personally think the snake would look great with color as well! Maybe black and red or black+gray+another color.

  5. Probably more neo traditional with some Japanese inspiration with the peonies. Either way sick tattoo I’d recommend the teal, purple, red, yellow, green traditional colors those will give it more of a traditional look.

  6. go for a mix maybe? making the only the flowers or the snake colour is cool, but i can also see like. where it pops out/gets closer to the viewer, make it more colour. half colour tattoos are also just so cool. staticky crosshatch between full, 3d colour, or a splash like transition like the ink threw itself on there and turned the flat drawing real. seriously whose your artist though that is just gorgeous
