Kind of a shorter last minute appointment.
Really took my time though, as I really wanted to make sure that white was in there (and it is smack dab centered in the "ditch", or elbow pit, which makes it a little more unpleasant).
The white should really pop even more after it heals and the green goes in the leaves around it.  Generally with most tattooing you put the darker colors in first and work your way progressively lighter (so that you don't smear a dark color into a lighter one and muddy it up forever).  For this look though, I really try and follow the Horitoshi way of doing it by putting the white in first.  It's more stressful and difficult, but ultimately the best way to achieve that look of the white really popping that intensely...
