After doing a cover-up tattoo for Joels wife he decided he wanted to do a full oriental sleeve with me. Awesome Ness. We start going over the idea and the concept he wants to get done. he had a solid reference for the geisha so I use this and changed it up a little bit. Then he wanted to koi fish swimming upstream and a dragon. Them he gave me artistic freedom from then on. So I freehanded both of the koi fish rolling upstream in water with falling cherry blossoms. Then I sketched out the dragon on paper and free handed the rest of the background.[expand title="Read More..."]
Over the course of the tattoo we became friends and that’s always a bonus. Now we are talking about and conceptualizing Joel’s left arm. I ended up hiring Joel to do some video work for me. He helped me make my testimonial video and did all of the editing. Personally, I think it came out great! Check it out let me know what you think.
