Been crazy busy lately with Masa in town and the regular hectic schedule, so hopefully some new pics will be coming soon.
This one is on one of our favorite folks around here. We started with some flowers on her back, and it morphed and grew over the shoulder and down the arm. The flowers and swirls on her back are all down the right side (I'll remember to get pictures some day) so there isn't much tattoo down the back of her arm. That way, when she's standing with her arm at her side, it's not just a jumbled mess of tattoo.
It's been fun to just sort of piece it together as we go, and draw on each new section as we go with no real master plan...just let it kind of take on a life of its own. The dragonfly and peony were done by hand when Toshi Hide was in town a few months back.
It's starting to look pretty cool, and I'm sure we haven't seen the last of her...
