WIP means a Work-In-Progress. At Cardinal Tattoo we like to show how our pieces come to life over time and this is one of those instances. The top of this Halo Master Chief is about 90% finished, with the rest of the body being only about 60% complete. We still have to add a significant amount of detail and some background to make the image 'pop' off the skin. We always laugh when asked if the artist who did this piece, Will, ever does color tattoos. He does, quite well we think! Interested in color or black-and-grey realism tattoos? Visit Cardinal Tattoo on the historic Gallatin, TN square, roughly 30 minutes North of Nashville after noon seven days a week or call to set up your appointment.
