Athena's Orchids by Trevor


Ever wondered what kind of work and time really goes into some of those larger tattoo pieces you see?  Below is an example of a full calf piece done on shop manager, Athena Angelic.  This beautiful orchid design was tattooed by Trevor Kennedy.  Trevor and Athena did about 20 tattoo sessions lasting from 3 to 6 hours each session.


Here is Athena happy to be finished with her first 5-hour session.


First session done...outline of orchids.
(Athena has previous tattoos of the places she has lived below the new orchid piece.)


This technique is called "Blood Letting."


Some color added also.


Adding another large orchid to the back of the calf.


First round of color on small orchids.


Adding more color on the back.


A little extra flare.


Finishing color on the front.


And the finished product...
