Sometimes drawing a tattoo on the skin can be the only real way to make it fit properly, but man it sure makes it trickier as well (especially when the client tells you they have "very high expectations" of you)...
I've been doing a bunch of work on her lower arm (jungle scene) and did that lion on her back years ago, but she's always mentioned wanting a large chrysanthemum on her shoulder.
The other day seemed as good as any to go for it.  I do a lot of flowers, and especially "Japanese" ones, but never ever tire of it.  It's an interesting thing to try and free up your mind and have something flow and feel natural, while at the same time having it be a very technical and focused process.
I'll be adding the leaves and starting the color next time...
