Stippled Roses Tattoo

I had such a good time working on these stippled roses for Sahkeena last week! Sahkeena wanted to get a detailed rose design as a memorial tattoo, and she knew she wanted the shading to be stippled. Stippled shading has become really popular in the last few years, and I think its a really nice way to add a different texture to a tattoo. We based the designs within the petals on patterns found in intricate hamsa designs and textiles. I would love to continue trying new things with these sorts of themes and ideas. Thanks Sahkeena!
