Burne Jones tattoo

 
Above is a reproduction of the painting from which my new leg tattoo is taken.  It's a big step for me as up until now all my tattoos bar one small one on the ankle have been on my torso or upper arms.  This one goes down to my knee.




To the left is my almost virgin right leg piece.  The other photos show how the knight is progressing.  The woman is only in outline so far and not showing here. It is at a preliminary stage with many hours of work remaining to be done, including another Burne Jones image which will wrap the work right around my upper leg and everything will eventually join up with what is above.

It is a beginning of something that I hope will ultimately look very painterly.
