I find that pain hurts.

 

But there are different kinds of pain...I've actually fallen asleep getting tattooed before...endorphins or something...

wow I love this picture! Again I think something will end up lost in translation when turned into a tattoo though.... I'd love to see how it would come out in tattoo form

In the exploratory phase, would love to view any interesting ones.  I really dig the above pic, although uncertain on how it would translate to a tattoo.

Minne felt like an itch I didn't even know needed to be scratched.

Thinking the use of color in this pic might translate well for color on the phoenix's plumage.

i think the hard part with the last photo posted is the bleeding of colors ~ which may look awesome BUT also, may not especially with time.... my bleeding tattoos i dont care... they are my babies and every line is a history - however, others may not feel the same. it wouldn't look so obvious with orange bleeding into other shades of oranges/reds/yellow but there are a lot of colors on the last image that may bleed and just appear black or murky .... good luck! i did a google image search of phoenix rising tattoos and found some pretty awesome pieces - can always take the last image or 3-5 with you and talk to an artist who will combine them and your own touches of artistry and wants for personal touch and create a long lasting piece.

Thanks Rayne!  I have also found that a thin dark outline holds back the bleeding of colors.

I'm working on a big piece on my ribs right now. Jeebus fuckballs, it hurts. But it looks amazing!!! If you were a little closer, Ms. Dee, I'd be your tat buddy :)

 

Crap, if I'm bored, I'd probably come out there anyway!

 

Ms. Teo, have you decided on body location yet?

Location will depend on the final design choice.   I would prefer to be able to view the tat without a mirror.

I'm with you on the visiblility. I have one on the back of my neck, my first one, and I would often forget about it, until someone asked about it. My other 3 are visible to me, and I like that so much better!

 

I'd suggest the ribs, but efff.... It looks good, but the pain is ridiculous.

 

 

Is this your first one, Teo?

The colour fade around the wings makes it look like bruising. Not a good choice of colour, imoho.
