Take a look at Part 1 of this Snake, Tiger, & Dagger Tattoo tattoo done by Timothy Kidd here at Mantra tattoo in Lakewood, Colorado. This session took almost 1.5 hours and we compiled it all into a time lapse video. Kidd enjoys doing American Traditional style tattoos with hard black lines and a lot of color. There is a lot that goes into the entire process of a tattoo, check out the video to see it all in just a few short minutes!

Snake, tiger, and dagger tattoos, what better trio for an American Traditional tattoo could there be? These three things have been used since the beginning of classic tattooing. Combined they hold a wide range of meaning for the client getting this tattoo. Tigers are some of the most ferocious hunters, known for their stealth and strength. Snakes hold a unique symbolic representation as well, being creatures that survive on their own they can portray an ideal of individualism. Daggers are used in classic tattooing to represent the meaning of protection or symbolize that you might kill something as beautiful or as powerful as a rose or a tiger in this case to defend something or someone you care about. Put together these three things make an awesome tattoo!
