Realistic Cat Portrait in Traditional Frame

Submitted on 09.04.18

The client sat through a long session in a painful spot on the top of her thigh.  She sat phenomenal as we finished up this tattoo.  There wasn't just one realistic cat portrait, but 2.  The cat portraits were a lot of fun and I enjoyed putting them into the ornate frame.
Realism tattooing is always fun, especially when working on pet portraits.  Realistic pet portraits can take a lot of time (anywhere between 4 to 10 hours).  I'm not sure the exact total time, but it was a long session.  Especially since the previous day, we tattooed her other thigh. 
We added the ornate frames to help contrast the realism as well as give a border.  They help to give a finished look to the piece instead of making it look like a floating head. 

I had a lot of fun working on these, and would love to do more.  If interested, contact us through the contact page to this website.  Thanks for looking!
