Looks great man. Had some shading done on my side a week and a half ago:

As far as we could get before my skin started twitching too much.

Freehand sharpie by my tattoo artist earlier today. The whole thing hurt a hell of a lot less than I was expecting.

I'm not a big tattoo fan and just stumbled on the thread, but this is quite beautiful

This looks dope af gomebrah. What style is this called? I really like it vs the others I see on this thread.

not sure if it's a specific style, but it's adapted from some old Japanese watercolor paintings that I have (but instead of birds from Japan, they're birds that were/are always at the feeders at home in Upstate NY). Not sure how easy it is to tell from the pic, but each bird is done in a slightly different style: the inner arm looks like it was painted on, the top looks very sharp and direct, while the back of the arm is a little bit cartoon-y. The only "style" typical from the paintings that the artist didn't think would turn out nice was the very blotted style that you sometimes see - would have been tough to translate and incorporate into the other types of birds.

overall, I let the artist just do her thing. I had the painting references, and (pretty much) knew the types of birds to include, and that's just about all the input I wanted/needed to give.

I have actually gotten some great ideas for future tats here.
