Bluebird and Autumn LeavesHere’s a fun pic of a colorful piece from my archives!  Old school (not in the fun way) tattoo artists insist that tattoos require a heavy black outline.  “Not true” I say!  While the black outline does serve a meaningful purpose in some designs, there are situations in which the black is unnecessary.  When we look at objects in life, the only time we see a black edge is when the subject is in shadow.  When an item is illuminated we see color.  So, when we render a subject as a tattoo it rocks to go all the way and render it in full living color!
