I did this over a year ago. I wanted to finish it but I ran out of ink in the pen I was using and I dont have another one like it, nor do I remember the type of pen that I used. It was some kind of art pen... I think. I dont like to use different pens in the same outline because it bothers me when they have different texture and/or color. But I still think that its one of my better pieces.

Actually my brother wants me to tatt this on him once I get better with my tattoo gun. But for someone who wants to be a tattoo artist so bad, Im really afraid to practice on people other than myself. My husband got me to do one on him but the took a lot of convincing.

I confess I know little about tattoo (though it has ancient roots), I can only say that the drawing itself is exquisite & has grace; and though you didn't finish it for good reasons (I agree with koosie, I understand), it speaks beautifully by itself. You caught the structure of bamboo beautifully right down to the joins of the leaves & bamboo joints; and it looks as if the dragon's tail was to hold the bamboo as a base, a holder...unfinished drawings are an art by themselves, the masters did them with great love. This is beautiful, you do beautiful work.
