Tengu Sleeve

We got in a pretty mellow session to color all the maple leaves.
Hadn't tattooed him in a while as he took the summer off to enjoy the sun and water, but he's back with a vengeance.  He came in for two appointments with Masa the other week to get the orange chrysanthemum and lucky hammer (uchide no kozuchi) on his lower arm.  We actually did this session the day after they finished.  Looking forward to finishing up and seeing both arms completed as a set (his other side is a 3/4 sleeve of kitsune (fox) images that also has a tebori chrysanthemum at the bottom) as they were intended to match each other.  The placement of the main characters, masks and shrines on the inner arm all match up pretty well.
He's had to cancel his next one due to a freak can opening accident, but wishing him a speedy recovery and hoping to get back to it soon...
