Matching with existing tattoos

Some time there are situations when you face an interesting challenge to match next tattoo with other tattoos that are already there. There are two examples – a Polynesian inspired sleeve to chest piece where I had to work with a reference picture and still match rest of sleeve done by 2 other tattoo artists and other one is graphic mandala / mehndi style piece finished of on a top of the neck with black and grey rose. Plan of a customer is to finally start bring all the tattoos together and that is why we put more traditional looking roses on sides to match on of arms and still keep symmetry and finishing on bottom with leafs to match existing back tattoo and again all other tattoos are done by other artists. On back piece there will be more work with more details and elements added.
