    yeh good sitting clean skin at 9:30am to full sleeve by 8pm considering my other sleeve has been 28 hours and still another 8 or more to go.
    I could leave it B&W but want colour so another 3-5 hours to colour the water & bits and should be all done.
    my Tattooist ( Craig Gemmel from NZ ) was keen to keep going & put a couple of more hours of colour in but the final touch ups sealed the deal, to colour it when he next visits Aus in about Feb or March.
    it was all drawn free hand from my ideas & a couple of reference drawings I had & sketches he did, total of about 9 hours in the chair drilling & about 1.5 hours of drawing & breaks if that.
    very happy so far with it.

    Looks good B&W, can only imagine after color is added. Just need some filler & my sleeves will be done too. Difference is mine are a bunch of different pieces, 17 yrs in the making.

    I hope the red lasts longer than mine although mine was many years ago.

    If you go out in the sun for a while I bet you can read it in braille.

    So far so good on the red. The only color that faded was the white. I don't hold white for some reason. Headed back in a year or two for the other half sleeve. I will post some pics of what Im after later on.

    Nice work Suticat, yeah red is notorious for fading. Don't know why. Maybe Jimmy knows. Takes a few years though, and hey you can always get it put back in.
