Birthday Ink

Joel's birthday present this year is a commissioned 3/4 sleeve from Hawk Chaite at Sovereign Tattoo. Hawk built the sleeve around the existing dragon and little Curly Girly he already had on that arm. It's two Koi fish representing his two boys...

Putting the stencil on was a process. Took some time to get it placed just right.

The outline only was done Saturday. It will take a couple more sittings for the color and shading to be added.

Curly Girly gets to play in the waterfall.

Joel was making funny faces when Hawk got to this area. Tender!

OUCH! That's a lot of needlework. You guys are braver than I. Congrats. I love the symbolism.
