Coloring In The Dragon II by BeautifulDragon322 Coloring In The Dragon II by BeautifulDragon322
I had my first coloring tattoo session on my full sleeve ([link]) and I started with the dragon! :iconkredence101: took this picture of my tattoo artist adding the color to the dragon on my forearm. You can see the needles going in and out at the end of the tattoo machine where the yellow ink is going in.

My tattoo artist spent about 2 and 1/2 hours to color in the dragon. The eye of the dragon will be the very last thing to be colored in on my full sleeve tattoo. The colors are very bright and solid right now. They will be that way for about a week. Once it has healed all of the final colors, small details and shading will surface. I will get some updated pictures once it has healed!

Honestly on my lower arm it was not that painful! Near the wrist area it is a little tender but not bad at all! They do sorta tickle at times!! :D

It can be in some areas and it all depends on the person getting and giving the tattoo :) Thank you it is starting to get better and not as sore.

:D It is a wonderful experience and nothing to honestly be afraid or scared of in my opinion. I find it very relaxing, soothing and somewhat exhilerating to get my tattoos worked on. I also enjoy it because I am always adding new art and new things to my own person, and they are always with me! :D

It's nerve racking at first, because you build yourself up. I just got my first tattoo last month, it was a slight pinch, but it didn't really hurt other than that. 'Cept when it hit the bone. It stung a little then. You'll love it if you ever get one :)

Incredible picture. Incredible tattoo. I love the way you captured this shot. You must have a damn good camera too, at least one with good macro.
