I've shot a lot of tattoos and find one of the common challenges is to keep the light skin tones from burning detail and contrast in the ink. You've got nice light around the edge of the art, but it's a little low contrast in the centre. I've tried using a larger source from further back to get a more even coverage, or use a harder light source (more colour and contrast) and work the angle until I get a clean shot. The harder source usually vignettes placing more focus on the artwork - though you can fix the vignette and contrast in Lightroom (create a contrast brush and work that hotspot with a little dash of highlight recovery) Lovely art, watch the dress/top cutting off the feathers in bottom of frame.
