More  on this back piece

The mental and financial strains  of the body suit are a true measure of your dedication ,

these days with tattoos being more common and visible ,work on this scale is the next step in maintaining the mystique and awe that tattoos can  possess.

Working on this foo dog 

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.[7]

I was a bit underwhelmed by the impact due to size , while making it it seemed large in the house .
I think next time the scale will be much larger
Thanks for reading
