Started my leg - "Heraldic" Lion tattoo - Bill Liberty Art and Ink - Folsom


Recommended Posts

I have been wanting a fancy lion similar to the one on the side of a Lowenbrau beer bottle for a long time. It is called a "Heraldic" lion. There is all types but i really like the look of it. I am a Leo so Lion's are always a good choice. I have no tattoo's on my lower body so i figured it was time. Rather than do a small one on my upper body i went with a decent sized one on my right calf.

Pain during: 8 out of 10.

Pain after: 9 out of 10. It just throbs for a few days after you get home. I have THOUSANDS of dollars in art on me and i don't remember any of them throbbing 2 days later. Plus it was hard to walk with that skin stretching. But you get over it and all is well. This is 2, 2 hour sessions. One for line work, one for shading. As soon as i can come up with more stuff that i want, i will be tying in to this and "turning the corner" (going all the way around).

thanks a LOT to my friend and one of my favorite artists Bill Liberty for the fine work.

This is just a few days shy of 2 weeks healing. I think it will look even better in a week or two and as it becomes completely healed and done. 2 week mark is actually done but for me they start looking real good after a month or so.
