Celtic Zoomorphic Chest Plate Tattoo - right side

A returning client with ambitions for extensive tattoo coverage made a special request. Inspired by the full-body Japanese tattoos with upper chest piece panels, we marked out a space to fill, and decided on an eagle, a dog, and an eel to fill it. Hours of drawing last night turned led to hours of tattooing today, and now the cross and spirals on his arm are complemented by the zoomorphic flowing onto his chest.
