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.
This sleeve has some intense detail ,it’s coming in at around 2 and a half years of work here’s the final session shots
Fully healed shots coming in the future ,💥💥💥
