New betta tattoo

Got another tattoo Tues...Betta's are my fav fish and I've kept them since I was 5, so I chose a betta.

Will be getting it coloured in on the 22nd, haven't decided on what colours for the betta yet. Leaning towards purples and blues

That's some spectacular work! Can't wait to see the finished product.

Where did you get the design?

that is a great bit of work,and can't wait to see it in full colour.
you've got a very talented tattooist.
may i ask if that is a spider at the bottom ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

willow, it's a crab, it's hard to see right now against the gravel but once it is coloured in it really looks like a crab as you will be able to see the front claws a lot better

batman, I found the design on an artists' site, it was apparently made for someone for an etching design on a shower door. I emailed and asked him permission to use it and he said yes :) It was PERFECT for a tattoo.

actually that was pretty silly of me to think it was a spider sorry about that.
i think the Tat is awsome,i like the sound of those colours too.
