I wanted to take a photo of every session, but it slipped my mind after most of the appointments, so it's not quite every step.
Each session was roughly two and a half to three hours each. A few shorter, a few longer depending on our moods and schedules.
Here's what we had to work with. Since she already had some work from various tattooers, I had kind of an awkward space to work with.
She wanted to cover up the geometric shapes in the top left, but make everything else look like it belongs with what we were adding.
My first basic sketch
First day, outline done
Finally done, but I wanted to wail until the background wasn't so fresh to take good pictures.
Finished and about 2 months healed!!
The whole process took about 8 months.
