More Dung Beetle studies...(even though i still haven't finished the other one)

Another 'IrukandjiDesigns' tattoo by @etinktattoo -thank you so much for sending me this photo of your beautiful work, Jonas!✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ (If i remember correctly, this drawing from quite a while ago was a custom order reject...so happy to see it has now found a home on someone's arm after all:))
Time for a little bit of OldStainLove💛 ...this one here is 9 days old and ageing pretty nicely.
Had a sudden urge to draw a dung beetle 🌞🌞🌞🌞
24h stain...just after remembering the importance of thinking ahead (I temporarily forgot i'll be attending a wedding in less than a week-by which point my stain will no doubt be at it's mangiest 'too early to scrub-too late to look halfway decent')😬😑😬
✨I guess 2018 did not get me magically unstuck from my little rut...✨

Rusty efforts on a rusty bonnet... (thank you LeiLei for your patience;))
I was quite horrified after realising it has been over 4 months since i last did a large henna piece on myself-i am glad that wicked spell is broken now...
