Cherry Blossoms by alienhunny Cherry Blossoms by alienhunny
Design was based on a modern painting...
I wanted a somewhat abstract look for the cherry blossoms.
I'm very pleased with the results.

(Sorry about the fuzziness of the doesn't do justice to things.)

Most beautiful Cherry Blossom Tattoo I've ever seen!

I like the simple beauty (not too complicated flowers) and that the branches are so sublte. It looks really smooth (I really don't know how to explain it...).
I thought about getting cherry blossoms quite like that but on the side of my upper body (part between back and belly... dunno how that body-part is called ?).
But I really want to be sure that it means something to me so that I won't regret it later. Maybe with adding a small japanese sign :)
But nothing sure yet.

Hello! Your beautiful work has been featured in this news article: [link] Thank you for sharing your work with us!
wow this is a great tattoo!
First of all - this is something I could use as a base for my concept. Don't worry I won't copy your tattoo i've just started to think of cherry blossom in a different way.
And questions: How long does it take foot to heal? Were you be able to walk all day in heavy shoes?
Sure, I don't mind you using it as the basis for your own design. For me, tattoos seem to heal on the outside in about 5-7 days and this one wasn't bad at all because it is small. (They say it takes another week for the inside of it to heal but during that time it's barely sore). I wore shoes that didn't rub on it, though, and didn't wear hose or anything like that. The red petals will peel after about a week, but other than that, the healing process isn't bad. I didn't have much soreness at all.
Im about to get my tattoo during my trip in January and i don't know if it is a good idea... you know, all days walking, sightseeing... what do you think?
Hmmm...I would just ask a tattoo artist. It depends on whether you will be wearing heavy socks all the time I guess---but I kind of think it might be okay anyways. The main thing is keeping it clean and making sure it doesn't dry out---keeping it moisturized with Vit A & D ointment 24-7 for the first week.
THX! Your answer really helped me :)
