Oi oi boys and girls - I haven't posted in literally years, it's funny how quick time flies!

Anyway, in the mean time I've been an apprentice in a tattoo shop for just over a year now, and about 5 months ago I was finally allowed to start picking up a machine... yesterday my buddy mark and in to make a start on this piece - we're 3 hours in so far, he'll be back in a few weeks to have the rest finished and add "Until all are one" in script above and below... I was so happy to get to do a transformers tattoo, let me know what you think - the picture is fresh! Thanks for looking.

Thanks pal. I used a 7 liner for the whole thing and then went over the extremities with a spread 13 liner to give it definition. Never used anything smaller than a 9 before and it was a real challenge! I used the picture below as a rough guide, but I did my own thing with it really;

I actually think yours works better, perspective-wise. Nice stuff, looking forward to the completed thing!
