Celtic Valor Sleeve Tattoo - Colored

Today I am thrilled to finally do a  knotwork half-sleeve with a vivid color in the background. I've done solid black or dot shaded fill in the area behind the knots in the past, but this is the first time I have had a client who wanted color. I very much like this look, where the color makes a shield of their skin for the knots to appear above, it lifts them into the foreground. The previous blog post shows it when it was just lines and shading:
