    Looks solid to me. I like the way they’ve done the waves.

    Nicely done, good execution and they really paid attention to linework. That shading is serious :) bold will hold. I’d like to see their flash.

    Beautiful tattoo as far as technique! And those waves look really cool!

    But now lets talk about design.

    The top part of the main mast is absent, so right now you just have a sail just floating up top.

    Also it doesnt seem as if the farthest back sails are connected to a mast at all (mizzenmast?)

    Toward the base of the 2 present masts there is not much depth to the main mast and it looks like its just been stuck next to the foremast. Or if going with the way the bow of the ship is pointing, it looks as if the mainmast is back where it needs to be...just kinda off way far to the right

    Lastly, you could argue that the bottom 2 sails on the mainmast are what's throwing the angle of depth off. They seem to be either too long or faced as if its a profile when it should be a 3/4 turn just like the rest of the ship.

    Taking a look at THIS tattoo of similar style and simplicity, you can really see what sets these 2 apart as far as the angle of perception and design go.

    I don't want to make you think you got a bad tattoo, because it looks really awesome and you should be very proud of it. I just want this info to get back to the tattooer so that they can improve and make their art even better.
