    so the consensus is I'm pretty heroic for doing the arm in one go?

    pretty sure that's the conclusion.

    Four and a half hours was about my limit for my arm, but that was also my first ever tattoo.

    Thought about it a long time and recently got a couple. I don't have good healed pics (camera is fresh) so here's the tattoo artists':

    dope.



    Good to see this thread bumped. I don't have a date set yet, but I've noodled with my artist to have my arm finished off from about 1/4 down from elbow to the wrist, full wrap. We're testing out ideas to make sure it doesn't crowd the work on the upper arm, and if it turns out that it does, we'll switch arms.

    Also have tentative idea for my other ribs, because I didn't learn the first time around.

    Finishing up my sleeve with some shading tomo, and managed to get an appointment with Kelly Violet in June. Ridiculously hyped.

    it's effectively "done". Artist wants it to heal and then probably add more white and expand the "atmosphere" a bit on the other side. I also have the option of expanding the bottom portion further down the wrist, and odds are I'll do that. Note the lighter colors are a bit obscured by red soreness in this pic.
