I did this first portrait on my buddy Jerimiah Smith. An awesome skater and good dude all around.
I was stoked that it was of Cardiel. I tried my best to do it as close to the photo as possible, though I think the photo I took might be at a weird angle for the macro setting. I'm by no means a photo realistic tattooer but I want to get better at doing portraits, and doing portraits takes practice. I wish Tony Uno's site was working so I could link some awesome portraits. He was actually someone I asked advice from, along with Tim Beck, and my friend Iddy who works in Racine and does a lot of photo realism.
All in all i think it's pretty good for a first attempt.
