    Hey Guys

    So I finally stated my half sleeve. I just finished session 2 and I am thrilled with how it is coming out. As you can tell from the pictures I am getting a traditional Japanese Dragon with a Pearl of Wisdom. The layout was freehand drawn on my arm.

    Session 1 –outline

    And just think that is one of the easiest part of the body to get tattooed

    Looks good nice and clean linework

    I have two half sleeves, both of which go to the insides of my arm up close to the arm pit. Yea, doesn’t feel good but it’s not so bad!

    I’ve been afraid to get ink on my inner bicep, there’s something I want there but I admit I’ve purposely avoided the area. Your tattoo is looking good so far, though, most of the line work is very clean.

    Take it from someone who has both inner biceps done. It’s really not as bad as some make it out to be. Definitely a bit more tender than anywhere else but it’s definitely manageable!
