talkin' tattoos tuesday week 16

Welcome to week 16 of Talkin' Tattoos Tuesday! I did an intro post where I explained my goal in posting these every week and how you can submit your photo to be featured. Check out the post if you need to refresh your memory. Since I've went through all my tattoos, now I'll be sharing photos I've found online, and the occasional viewer submission when they come in. 

The main reason I decided to post this picture is because the cupcake. I find many cupcake tattoos but they vary so much depending on the artist and what the client wants so I find myself searching for the perfect cupcake tattoo for future reference when I get my cupcakes fixed on my back piece. 

Besides the cupcake, I love the colors in this piece. Yellow (looks like hints of orange as well) can be really hard to put on the body. I have yellow on my back piece and it didn't take too well, so I really like how bright this one is and you see it clearly as well from a distance (I can assume). I also love the purple hair. Its the perfect shade and the tail is so pretty with the big curl at the end and gently resting at the bottom vs looking awkwardly put in place. 

I've had the thought of a half sleeve piece for years now but find myself questioning how it would look. It's one thing if you have a tattoo and can cover it up, but having half your arm covered means people will always see it unless its winter time. I think the only way I'll get that tattoo idea done in the future is to have the perfect person do it and ensure that they know exactly what I want and that we're 100% on the same page with every little detail to make sure its perfect!
