Tattoo Design

Inspired by the traditional style with shading.  Done on 5"x7" 140lb. hot press Fabriano water color paper.  My friend yelled at me for not using Arches, but it's made with animal products, and I'm not cool with that.  That's why I use either Fabriano and Strathmore, and yes, I also use synthetic brushes.
I really like Strathmore cold press.  Some might think it's cheap, but I started out on it and it gives me a nice vintage look.  So far the hot press Fabriano is really good, but I'm going to pick up some of their cold press because I haven't tried it yet.
