freehand pencil outline for *killjoy
's 3/4 sleeve, from wrist to mid-bicep, drawn to scale (hence the overlapping extra bit). this is his belated birthday gift.
the dashed lines and lighter bits are where his existing tattoos are, and the octopus will probably fade behind it in those parts
the tattoo artist he chose at iron age in st louis approved of this, and it totally made my day. she's really sweet and talented, and she said she probably won't even have to change anything (aside adjusting the stencil to line up properly once its on his arm. i did use a tracing of the arm and kept checking though, so the tentacle that's cut off should line off on the left side where it comes back in
and best of all, he approves. i'm taking this back to jersey with me to finish up in between commissions
sorry about the image quality. WIP, after all, so a quickie snap
do not take, use, distribute. this is a commissioned piece, whose rights belong only to me and the client, in this case *killjoy. thankye.
