Tattoo design coloured
A design I did a few weeks ago in pen and pencil and only just got around to colouring with watercolours last night. This image has been touched up a little in Photoshop, mostly just increased saturation.
The pencil and paintbrush motif is just a reflection of my love of the "tools of the trade" (although I really prefer a mechanical pencil). The skull, roses and squid tentacles are just for coolness though.
