Hi Everyone,

I was a frequent visitor to FFF years ago, but I wanted to come back and share a picture of this awesome Firefly tattoo I just got.



I was wondering if anyone had ideas for touchups that could make it look even better? I think I might get the flames in the back bigger so that it looks like it's propelling more.

How long did that take?

It took two sessions that lasted about 2.5 hours each.

The first session was doing all the outlines and creating the space background. Everything was done in black with shading for space.

The bulk of the second session was spent on making the space blue - this normally doesn't take long, but with so many other things going on, it took extra care to not cross any lines.

The very top of it hurt a little, but other than that, it didn't hurt that much - I kept myself busy playing Angry Birds.

Don't add flames to Serenity because admirers will have to stroll around you to see the entire tattoo. For example:

DARWIN54's tattoo is the best of the three I've seen. It is perfection. But if you want to go beyond perfection, add red and green navigation lights that flash on and off when you flex your biceps.

Bigger tattoos aren't always better. Jewel Staite's Pink Pegasus (should have been Serenity) got overwhelmed by the background decoration of stars and blue cloud. Darwin54's tattoo has also got the stars and blue background. That is more than enough. Going farther could ruin it. Start a new tattoo -- on the other shoulder. Blue Sun?

I think one FF tattoo is enough. I have much smaller BTVS and ATS tattoos, but I'm honestly running out of places to put these things.

There are some quotes from Firefly/Serenity I really like, but I'd have to think about where to put them first.

I didn't think about that. I might go back and get the tail of the ship touched up a little. Right now it makes it as one big burner, but I know there are pieces of the ship separating the tail end of Serenity from another round burner that goes around the ship.

Glad you like my tattoo. I hope to have people point it out while walking around in the spring and summer.
