I printed out that Illustrator pair of wings at the proper size and cut them out with an x-acto knife the other day, then got Rik to have at me with these stencils and a Prismacolor tonight.






They're a little high; we'll have to try again later once they wash off. Still, I am thinking that they don't really look 'broken' with my arms down as people (including myself) were worrying. A second test with the same basic shape will let me know for sure. Then I get to start researching how much it'll cost. o.O;

Wow, actually yes, those do seem to work remarkably well.

OMG that design is awesome.
GET IT INKED! :D

Wow not bad at all. I think my greatest concern might bet to ensure the wingspan doesn't travel quite so far down the arm (especially on the left arm where it seems to come very close to the elbow) just so a simple t-shirt could adequately cover it. . . but then again I'm insanely shy like that, haha.

Hah! I want it to go down to the elbow. If I want to cover up I can wear a long-sleeved blouse.

During summer I tend to go around in camisoles, so pretty much only the tail would be hidden.

Sweet! I actually like how they move with your arms. There's a lot of visual interest there; I like that a lot better than regular back-wing tats that don't move.

It's very pretty. But I have a tattoo phobia so I'm totally creeped out.

Really? I wouldn't have guessed!

Damn that is going to be an awesome tattoo. Beautiful and original.

I just have a little wrist tattoo. Now I want more ink. Tattoo jealousy. XD

Aces. If I saw someone with that tattoo (especially a hotter'n hell nuclear-haired goddess such as yourself) I'd have to stop them and ask if we had friends in common.

Those are pretty awesome. :) DO IT!

That does seem to work remarkably well, kind of like they settle on your shoulders and arms like a shawl when not 'in flight'. Good deal.

If this were a survey I would choose "strongly agree". The design works, arms up or down—count me among those who were slightly skeptical although I think I probably didn't weigh in on it. I can't remember! I like it though.

I totally take back my earlier trepidation. I think they look really cool. In fact, I like that they're generally 'folded,' and then, when you choose, they 'unfurl.' And of course the design is really keen as well. I think more people should do what you did to see if they're idea is really workable for a tattoo.

As I understand it, a lot of tattoo artists will get it on the body with carbon paper, and then check on position for that - but I dunno what the usual procedure for big weird pieces like this is!

The ideal procedure would involve time-looping myself by about an hour and doing it in marker, but...

That's slick. I like how they move with your arms.

Hottttt. Nothing but support from here.
