Badass. Great pattern and style. I love the curled wave bottom and red throughout the tat. The elbow pattern has to look really cool further away, almost scale like. Great collaboration, lucky patient.
I'm more intrigued by the craftsmanship of the tattoo, perhaps it has a higher meaning than you think or maybe it really is random - either way it's his body and i'm only appreciating the preciseness of such fine lines
I'm not sure I actually like this one. The broad negative spaced organic lined squid epaulet and the tight geometric waves/scales are a little bit water and oil to my eye. Is something else going into that squid space later, or will it stay as negative space? Will the negative space motif be repeated farther down the sleeve?
