Default Hawks Sleeve by Shige

Hey All,

Just got back from Japan last night, but I couldn't sleep so I figured I would share the start of this project with you.

First off, thanks to all the guys and gals here over the last few years, you've been a wealth of knowledge and motivation and without that I never would have made it to this point, so cheers to you!

Second, I have an even greater respect now for those with heavy coverage and massive hours in the chair, the strength and perseverance you possess is incredible!

Here's the start of the sleeve, I'm trying to get more pics from Shige as I didn't have the selfie skills required to take pics after the sessions. It was done over two days, 8.5 hours lining, 6.5 shading:

2 days later:













I'll try to snap some other angles of it soon, maybe after the heal, it is looking a little gnarly now, the flight made it quite swollen. He did some cherry blossoms on the inner arm and skulls/rocks where the hawks are perched. The top hawk's wing extends onto my shoulder blade, that was a cool surprise. When I met him a week earlier he wasn't sure if he could manage two hawks (which was my biggest request).

Still some shading to be done on the shoulder blade, collar bone and chest next time, then we start with the colour. I'm loving the yellow lining to the cherry blossoms. Planning for another 2 days back to back sometime before the New Year.

ps. I had no idea from the stencil that the shading would go into my armpit a bit and around my nipple, ask these questions first before finding out the hard way, rookie mistake....

Wow looks badass! I like the shading around the nipple and into the armpit but that must have hurt.

I was ok as he was shading the lower pec, but then I could tell he was getting closer to the nipple and the sweats started, didn't enjoy it, glad to have it out of the way. Can't imagine you guys with heavily saturated colour around the nipple.

Hey Throbbing, did Shige tickle you in that area?
