Celtic Valor Half-Sleeve Tattoo

This client commissioned a custom half sleeve based around my 'valor knot', and this is the result after the first two sessions. The original knot is round, and it is now extended with complimentary knot weaves to be a wide band that extends down to his elbow and fills the inside of the arm. The first session required fitting the knots to the body, and linking up the lines and connections. The second session was taken up with making all the lines crisp, and shading the "cross-overs and -unders." In the third and final session a colored background will complete the project.
