    Greek tattoo- 15 or 16th tattoo to date.

    Recently done this Greek god tattoo, took about 7 hours. Used 3rl, 9m, 13cm, 17cm. Internal black ink. My own critique- stencil rubbed off slightly on moustache so the shading went slightly darker than I would of liked it too. Let me know what you think! Cheers joe
