The human this forearm belongs to is a big dude. I mean like 6’6″ 250lbs big. Really cool ass dude, I’d chill with him any day. With that said, you’d figure a big hulking person can take tattoo pain, especially on the forearm. I couldn’t be further from the truth. This turned into a 3 session deal. First the line work, next the bird shading, and finally the background shading. One month later we are finishing what we started. Kudos to him though because he has another piece on that same arm with beautiful linework, but he never completed it. So his dedication to completing this is commendable and I’m appreciative that he stuck with it.
I used a 9 super tight liner and a 15 curved magnum with intenze black ink.
