I think you should spend more time drawing and creating a good stencil. That skull looks melted and disproportionate the middle of it ain't too bad, but the side that's by the middle of the chest and the back of the head and jaw is pretty jacked up. Do you have the drawing?
The virgin Mary, the artwork is off, the nose looks like two dots, the good thing is you can always go back in and fix it.
You know what helps drawing the tattoo you're about to do on paper. If you can't make it look good on paper there's no way it'll look good on skin. I'm still learning myself but I turn down tattoos all the time because I know I'm not ready for a whole lot of shit. There's no way I'll attempt a portrait, but I can draw a portrait on paper and make it look good. I just don't have the technique to produce that smooth shading to successfully execute a portrait I'll be proud of. My only advice would be to just spend more time on drawing and a more detailed stencil. I'm not even good yet but I know my boundaries, I know I can draw way better than I can tattoo. It takes time to get used to ink and skin.

the skull looks off as he aint standing straight for 1 & 2 his holding his arm out so the back off the head is gonna look distorted or did you not notice that..the skull reference was took from a picture of a real life skull which was took at a slight angle to not show to much of the other side of the skull

as for the virgin you say the artwork is of but you just pointed out her nose lol

but to be fair i knew you was gonna back lash after the c & c i left on yours..

but the way i see it all c&c is good c&c

We need the criticism from people, because people that know us will most likely just say everything we do is good. I know what looks good and I'm not happy with anything I've done yet. I was definitely gonna critique your pictures, you did sound knowledgeable and I was kind of surprised to see your work. The virgin Mary also has no contrast. It's too light but you can always  go back in and add. How long have you been tattooing?
