Kracken skull and octopus tentacle macabre sleeve work in progress

HEY EVERYONE!

 

Here's a piece I started a few months back. This picture is after our second full day sitting. The first session I'd drawn on the imagery and blocked in the major elements of the upper half, and in this one we rendered the tentacles and skull. It was in this sitting that the client brought to my attention that he'd like me to continue his half sleeve down and complete the sleeve. I really enjoyed playing around with the different elements to make something that reads well, and hasn't roadblocked the ability to continue down the arm... actually some of my favorite parts of this tattoo are the portions of negative space. thanks for looking!
