How to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear

When I had my back piece done I started with virgin skin. This meant the design could be an integrated coherent piece of art. Now that I'm finishing the rest of my torso, I face a bigger problem. I already have a number of tattoos on my chest and stomach and they are in black. My back is in colour.

Now I am trying to make the whole torso look all of a piece and to make the existing tattoos blend into the part body suit..

I do this knowing there can't be a big feature at the heart of it, something I would, with the knowledge I now have, have strongly desired. The best I can do is allow the flowers at the top of my chest to dominate. They will be coloured in later this month
