How many hours does a half sleeve outline take - Tattoowise
04/28/2006 - Third 7 hour Session - Memorial Sleeve Tattoo (19 hours) Orange Koi
Angle more from the front. The whale will be a mixture of ocher yellow and white highlights. The water is going be a dark and murky blue-green. The two halves of my sleeve should reflect each other pretty well.

Round one with the colors on this lady fun with the ladybug especially!
Ta-daaaaaa! All done. I asked Billy about the eyes, if he was going to finish them as they were completely blank. He told me that traditionally, the eyes of Japanese dragons are left til last, he thinks there's some superstition that if you don't do them last the dragon will turn on its owner. Thankfully, we won't be anticipating any mad dragon incidents as the last two dots of this session were his eyes. So, whaddya think???

The cherry blossom was also important to the samurai culture of Japan. Like cherry blossoms, samurai expected to have short lives. The cherry blossom also represented drops of blood
