Shoki Body Suit Day 1

So it started that he had no tattoos and wanted a Japanese sleeve.  After talking over the vibe he was going for I suggested that Shoki might represent his vision well.  After he did some research on his own he resonated with the idea so much that he decided to do it as a back piece instead.
Somewhere along the line, he decided that the heavily tattooed thing was clicking for him and made the decision to do the rest of his body.  Now I've got the task of bringing it over onto his arms and chest and down to the back of the knees for now.  In the future we will plan on going onto the front and down to the ankles, but one thing at a time.
He lives in Portland (7 hours north of me by car), so we recently decided that he would come down one week every month or two and get tattooed for 5 days in a row for a couple to few hours at a go.  This was the first day of that first schedule...
Went right to the side to get some of that over with early on.  It takes a tremendous amount of dedication and perseverance to follow through with something like this and I for one am very much looking forward to the transformation.  I've got my head wrapped around this one so many different ways, the possibilities are very exciting.  Never thought about one guy's body so much...
