Body Suit

Well for the first time in over a year we tattooed him with something that wasn't new outline or background shading.  The really dark, dense background is what really makes this style (and he knows that full well and loves it) but it can be tedious just doing month after month of black and grey clouds.
This session was still just black, but we started coloring in the scales on the right dragon.  This will eventually get color as well, and the black will serve as a little extra depth and texture.  Again, his wish is for a traditional-ish suit that follows established Japanese aesthetic, but a little tweaked and unexpected.  It's a bit hard to explain, but if you knew him it makes perfect sense.
We also began consulting for the next phase of the project, which we might even start next time depending on which way the winds are blowing.  Here's a sneak peak (very rough, but it's a general idea)...
