Finished up the scales and started the shading this session.  All of the scales were outlined in a light grey, with the idea being that when they're shaded in you won't really notice the line work, just the scales.  I think it emphasizes the patterning effect and just gives them a cool slightly more dimensional feel.  
It's amazing how long this modest little section took, but all those little scales and spaces take time.  I could have just done larger scales and cut down on some time, but this was the proper proportion in my opinion.  He's into as much time as we need to make it look as good as possible, and I really appreciate that.  It's always nice to work with someone who really values your time and understands what it takes to make a really good tattoo...
