Okay, so my tattoo needs a little more work to improve the clarity of the design due to the tonal similarity between the pale areas and the green inside the hexagons. I've mocked up two options with photoshop and I would like your opinion on which looks best:

darkening the pale areas:


shading around the pale areas:

For reference, this is how it looks currently:
