IT'S VERY EASY TO SEEANY JAGGED LINE,

ANY IMPERFECTNESS IN THE CIRCLE.

EVERYTHING ELSE IS UP TO US?- IT DOES NEED TO BE REALISM,

OPEN FOR BLACK AND GRAYOR COLOR.

- EYEBALLS ARE TRICKY, MAN.

- I WAS THINKIN' ABOUT GETTIN'A HAZELISH-TYPE

OF EYE ON MY FOOT.- THERE IS A VAST MAJORITY

OF THESE CANVASESI DON'T WANT TO TATTOO.

A LOT OF 'EM BECAUSE OF THE FACTTHAT THEY WANT REALISTIC EYES

ON PARTS OF THE BODY THAT AREVERY DIFFICULT TO TATTOO.
