This colourful dragon sleeve started of with a one point Buddah head then quickly developed into a large sleeve here’s the progress after a full day sitting , these are £450 and gives you from 11-6 with a short lunch break
A couple of discreet coverups in this sleeve , I was given the choice by the customer to go for colour or black and grey , it was more of a challenge to do it without the iconic colours , I’m happy with the results ,here’s Thor,spidey,captain America,iron man and hulk
Been putting this foo dog on Duncan’s ribs ,large scale work here and tough sittings to lay in the colour , added this little turtle of longevity (minogame) on the lower with another to follow just above the knee ,
In Japan, the turtle has developed a more independent tradition than the other three prominent beasts of China. The minogame(蓑亀?), which is so old it has a train of seaweed growing on its back, is a symbol of longevity and felicity. A minogame has an important role in the well-known legend of Urashima Tarō.
According to traditional Japanese beliefs, the tortoise is a haven for immortals and the world mountain, and symbolizes longevity, good luck, and support. It is the symbol of Kumpira, the god of seafaring people.
