After 18 months of sessions, we finally finished my sleeve back in February. It was too swollen and bloody that day, though, so I didn't get good pictures with Jimmy until I went back yesterday.

My amazing sleeve by Jimmy Walters

I went back yesterday to start on the other arm, but that didn't end up happening. He had some very valid concerns about my concept and its placement, and there definitely wasn't time to design the alternative. Luckily, we had other ideas brewing. Here's the outcome from first session for my neon '80s fantasy back piece!

We started my backpiece

I always imagined I'd have both arms completely covered before starting on my back. Being flexible and spontaneous really paid off, I love what we've done so far.

EDIT:
I'm susceptible to very weird earworms. Because I have a tattoo with keytars, this is now stuck in my head.

Wow - that’s very impressive. Are you getting any more colour added to your arms or keeping it monochrome?

That arm's finished as you can't really add color too well to something that's already been shaded through with just black ink. This new piece will be very colorful, though.
